P-DAY/Day of the Plunge - How do I Do This Crazy Thing?
Arrive - between 11:30am and 12:00pm and park your vehicle at the Oakland Boat Landing. A limited number of shuttles will be available to transport you the Pressey House or you can walk - it's just around the corner.
Register - come inside the Pressey House and Check-In at the Lounge. Turn in all the pledges you received off line and grab some FREE SNACKS to fortify yourself for what's about to come! You will be given the order in which you will plunge and if you need to change you can do so at this time.
Plunge - around noon all plungers will line up in order above the water's edge and wait to be introduced and invited to plunge. You can just dip your toes or go out to the demarcated line and dunk yourself under the water or anything in between. Teams will go in together.
Warm Up - when you get out of the water head to one of our warming tents alongside the Plunge Line and get out of your wet clothes!! Be sure to bring a towel and dry clothes - including socks and shoes - to change into! Limited space is also available inside the Pressy House.
