12th Annual New Years Day Blue Lip Dip 1/1/18 CANCELLED

  • City/State:Fort Wetherill, Jamestown,RI
  • Location:GIANT STRIDE DIVE SHOP
  • Length:All Day

It is with great disappointment and concern for everyones safety that I am canceling the Blue Lip Dip this year due to bitter cold temps, 20 knot winds, and a very icy parking lot at Fort Weatherill. We will still meet up at the Narragansett Cafe on Narragansett Ave in Jamestown at noon for a New Years beverage….there will also be a live band there called Nasty Habits. Sorry if anyone is disappointed and happy for those who are relieved….like me! It’s supposed to be fun and in 12-14 degree Highs food would freeze in 10 minutes, the heated changing tent would blow away and THAT would not be fun.

Jan. 1, 2018 – BLUE LIP DIP NEW YEARS DAY DIVE
MONDAY Jan. 1, 2018 – BLUE LIP DIP NEW YEARS DAY DIVE (AKA NOT SEACONNS FROZEN FIN DIVE) JAN 1, 2018¬†Giant Stride Dive Shop will be starting the New Year off with a dive at Fort Weatherill. There’s always a good turn out for this event as it’s lots of fun and most years Mother Nature has been kind to us! Diving will start at around 11:00 am so please arrive early to secure a parking spot. This is a Pot Luck event and a dish and BYOB is encouraged. I will have a tent with a heater and hopefully will see you there. If its raining or blowing a gale we will cancel. Please RSVP so we know how many are to expect. Happy Holidays and a fantastic New Year. I will be diving wet as is the custom for this event but “Drysuit weenies” are welcome as well. Come on out even if your not diving and hang out with friends, eat some Venison Chile and all the other great dishes our friends bring.
