A few brave souls took the plunge, literally, Feb. 25 during the Blackduck Firemen's Fishing Tournament on Blackduck Lake. This was the first event of this kind during the tournament and one jumper voiced his hope that it will be held again next year. Some of those taking the chilly plunge were Sam Richardson, Shelby Sorheim, Dylan Dexter and Kaitlyn O'Brien. Also jumping were some of Blackduck's finest -- emergency personnel that is. Minnesota Conservation Office Brice Vollbrecht jumped with his fiance, Paramedic and Blackduck Ambulance Service Manager Mollie Rucinski, Blackduck Fire Chief Rick Bogart and Blackduck Police Chief John Wilkinson.
