It is a long standing tradition at Oak Hills when a couple gets engaged to, as a community, throw the guy into the lake. This is done as a celebration of their engagement. Before being thrown in the man is asked, “Is she worth it?”, ‘it’ being the cold waters of Lake Marquette while fully clothed. Last Friday, April 15th 2011, was Calvin’s turn. Many have gone before, and many are still to come.
Have you been thrown in for the woman you love? Lets hear your story.
I was thrown in in either late November of early December. Either way the field was covered with a couple inches of snow and it was about 30 degrees out.
Here is Calvin’s experience.
