Wis. Polar Bear Club head makes 60th icy plunge
82-year-old says 60th consecutive jump into Lake Michigan on New Year's may not be his last
By The Associated Press

MILWAUKEE (AP) ' The Milwaukee Polar Bear Club president who made his 60th annual New Year's Day plunge into Lake Michigan says it may not have been his last.

Eighty-two-year-old Garth Gaskey previously said he was quitting because of his age, the four stents in his heart and his daughter was unhappy about it.

But on Sunday the retired Brookfield maintenance man told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (http://bit.ly/tf16sQ ) that he wasn't sure about next year. He jumped in with his granddaughter and great-granddaughter at Bradford Beach in Milwaukee.



His daughter, Cathy Mayer, was at the event, too, and had a different story. She says they are taking him to Arizona next year.
