Jump into Lake Minnetonka to wake you up on New Year's Day! Great Annual Tradition with major bragging rights and contribution to a wonderful charity! This year's major beneficiary of the money raised at the ALARC Ice Dive will be used to benefit the Semper Fi Fund which provides immediate financial support for injured and critically ill members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families.

Costume Contest

The ALARC Ice Dive will be giving away two $50 Gift Certificates for BaySide Grille, one each for the top two costumes worn by the divers as they jump into the comfort of Lake Minnetonka. The costumes will be judged by the ALARC staff. Judging criteria will be based on creativity and attention grabbing. Ice Dive spectators will be encouraged to voice their opinion also.
