“Gang of Goofs” Contest and Parade!
The 2019 Tybee Polar Plunge also welcomes the return of the “Gang of Goofs” costume contest and Parade!
We are looking for groups of at least three (3) or more to dress up in their craziest, wackiest and funniest costumes! The Goofs will parade in front of an esteemed panel of judges to compete for the coveted Le “Gang of Goofs” trophy, which will be engraved with their team name and displayed at the public location of their choice on Tybee Island for an entire year!
The “Gang of Goofs” parade will begin at approximately 11 am at the base of the Tybee Island Pier. The winners will be announced immediately prior to the Polar Plunge.
Gang of Goofs Registration
I WANT TO JOIN! WHAT SHOULD I DO NEXT? For more information download the Registration Form and follow the instructions above.
Do I have to register to swim? No. You do not have to register to swim in the Atlantic, but you will not be able to enter the fenced area without the wristband that you get when you register.
What form of payment will you accept if I register in person? We accept cash, checks, Visa and MasterCard. Checks should be made payable to Tybee Post Theater.
What do I do if I have already paid online and submitted my registration form? You will still need to pick up your T-shirt. Go to the Will Call line at the Pier and Pavilion the morning of the Plunge, or visit the Tybee Polar Plunge tent at the Tybrisa Roundabout from 1-4 pm, Dec. 29-31 and pick up your T-shirt and wristband early and avoid the crowd!
Are Plungers crazy to do this? It helps! But remember, our Plungers are doing this to benefit the Tybee Post Theater. Be sure to show up and cheer them on!
Where does all of the money go? The proceeds from the Tybee Polar Plunge go toward the programming and operations of the Tybee Post Theater. This historic movie house, built in 1930 by the Army stationed at Fort Screven, has been restored and reopened as a performing arts and movie venue for Tybee Island’s residents and visitors.
Is my donation tax deductible? Yes. The Tybee Post Theater is a 501 (c) (3) tax deductible organization. $19 of the $25 registration fee is a tax-deductible contribution.
Are you authorized to put a fence on the beach? Yes. A letter of authorization has been obtained by the Georgia DNR. Care is taken to make sure nothing is disturbed on the beach. The fence placement takes into account the rising tide for January 1, 2018.
I have more questions. Who can I contact? You can either click on the Contact tab at the top of this page, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 912-472-4790.
