Benefits of becoming a Polar Bear Member

    1)  Shocking the circulatory system can produce a warm afterglow and a transcendental
    state that one literally needs to experience to fully understand.

    2)  It is a spiritually uplifting ritual which can surpass any normal level of comprehension.

    3)  It can reduce wrinkles.    Drastic temperature changes and shivering skin
actually exercise shallow sub-cutaneous muscles that firm the skin.

    4)  You become part of history rooted in the European tradition
of saunas and cold-water bathing

    5)  Jumping in near-freezing water wearing little more than a pair of shorts
takes a brave

    6)  Participants build a sense of camaraderie and valued friendships that can last a lifetime.

    7)  It helps mentally by shortening the winter season and lifts bouts of depression. 

    8)  It's a heck of lot cheaper and safer than walking on coals.
