84 PEOPLE PLUNGED INTO THE FRIGID WATER IN CASEVILLE SATURDAY AFTERNOON. THE POLAR BEAR DIP WAS PART OF THE FESTIVITIES AT CASEVILLE'S SHANTY DAYS. SOME PARTICIPANTS CAME AS FAR AS NORTH CAROLINA TO BE A PART OF THE ACTION.
OTHER EVENTS INCLUDED THE POTTY TROTTY RACES, WHICH IS AN OUTHOUSE ON SKIS. ONLY TWO TEAMS COMPETED THIS YEAR DUE TO THE RECENT NON-WINTER-LIKE WEATHER. THE FASTEST TEAM WON WITH A HOMEMADE ROBOT OUTHOUSE, TRAVELING FROM THE DETROIT SUBURB OF BERKELY, MICHIGAN. THE "CHICK-ON-A-STICK" COMPETITION ENTERTAINED THE CASEVILLE SHANTY DAYS CROWD WITH MULTIPLE SLIPS ON THE ICE. TEAMS OF THREE HAD TO RUN DOWN THE ICE, HOLDING A LARGE PIECE OF WOOD BETWEEN THEM, AND WITH A "CHICK ON THE STICK."
