A Mid-Winter Dunking

Me emerging!

Today was the Rangiora Stroke Club’s “Blue Day” – always run in the middle of winter. 

Also, in what has rapidly become a tradition, various business houses and community groups sponsored individuals to jump into a pool of rather cold water. 

I ended up doing it for the first time after a whip-around was organised at Rotary last week and I found myself sponsored. 

My outfit (white jersey in honour of the All Whites – of course) was rather pale compared with many of the others.  Two examples are below. 

Congratulations to Denise Hasler of the Lotto Shop for organising the event and the help given by groups such as the Rangiora Stroke Club, the ANZ Bank, the Rangiora Lions Club and the Rangiora Volunteer Fire Brigade – and all the businesses who sent staff along to make idiots of themselves!

Courtenay of the Blue Rooster was one chicken who flew!
