Deep Creek Dunk Costumes, Deep Creek Lake 2011

This year’s Deep Creek Dunk costumes really exceeded anyone’s imagination, a total participation by everyone and once again raising big numbers for The Special Olympics.  My understanding is that the total amount of money raised is around $160,000 + for this wonderful charity.  There were at least a thousand or so people outside the Honi Honi bar in full support of this growing event.  This year the costumes were over the top and the amount of dunkers in costumes certainly increased.  A few great ones that come to mind: Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, ZZ Top, Hank Williams, Ozzy Osbourne, Slash, Brett Michaels, Eton John, Prince, 7 Michael Jacksons, Captain America, Finding Nemo characters,  Dreadlocks, speedos, spacemen,  ice cube people, masked wrestlers, feathered masked woman, a cat woman, Indians, Hugh Heffner and his ladies, drag queens, The Village People,  doctors, nurses, just to name a few!  It was standing room only to see the judging of the costume contest.  The “Legends of Rock” took top honors in the contest and were a heck of a lot of fun.  I don’t think I have witnessed so many smiles and people having fun in a really long time.  It was a great charity and family event and I have this strange itch brewing to maybe partake in the actual dunk next year.

Deep Creek Lake Dunk

Deep Creek Lake Dunk

 

Although a surprise blizzard kept a few people from making it to the Deep Creek Lake Dunk, you could hardly tell by the huge crowd of people that came and showed support for the courageous 450+ dunkers, who braved the sub-freezing lake temperatures to raise money for the Special Olympics. Every parking spot within a mile radius was occupied by a pumped-up group of dunkers and supporters who were all there to show support for an exciting event, and a heartfelt cause. Some dunk supporters showed up on snowmobiles and even walked on snowshoes across a frozen snow covered lake.

Dunkers turned up the volume of craziness with wacky costumes from wrestler look-a-likes, gnomes, clowns, kings, wizards, vikings…..you name it. Of course, there were a lot of women in bikinis and unfortunately some men in Speedos! But at the end of the day, everyone involved had a fantastic time supporting all the dunkers who sacrificed a lot of goose bumps and, as the events sweatshirts advertised “shrinkage”, in icy cold muddy waters.

The fun carried over to The Black Bear Tavern through the afternoon and into evening with live music from the Davisson Brothers Band and Poison Whiskey. Everyone involved shared pride in participating in an event that traditionally kicks off the Special Olympics games at Wisp Resort.  A total of $95,246 was raised for the cause. Good luck to all Special Olympians who start competition on Monday.
