3rd ( 4th) Annual Iche Nippy Dip Day Jan. 7, 2017

 

Friends of the Ichetucknee has sent the following flyer.  Address is  North Entrance, 8294 SW Elim Church Road (County Road 238).

There have been three previous dips;  the very first included ONLY Merrillee, Bob Knight, and Cathy Street.    Three hardy souls,  three forward thinking assets to our community.  Think how our North Florida environmental community has changed, thanks to these people.  Come to this fourth one  as a tribute to our ritual and our common support to our springs, in the face of adversaries who would destroy them for personal profit.

  1. Glad you all will be dipping! Learned from you and Trini J that it is the 4th Dip, but the 3rd sponsored by FISSP, so that is the reason the President chose to go with 3rd. I had to do some digging about the street address of the North Entrance. According to park management, it is as you reported, but Google shows that address going to another location on Elim Church. Requested that Google move the marker to the North Entrance. Hoping it will get fixed to avoid confusing any polar bears looking to dip for the first time….https://www.facebook.com/events/1156539621100030/
