Winky Shrinker

In February, the Green River Valley Winter Carnival provided a fun assortment of events to liven up the dead of winter in Pinedale. It started off Friday night with the “Winky Shrinker” Frozen Fishing Pond Plunge in the Kid’s Fishing Pond at the Pinedale Town Park. Four courageous souls braved the -11 degree temperatures to take a full dip in the icy pond. Two who dared were local Pinedalians, the other two were from Iowa and Wisconsin. Here Phil Swanson, from Iowa, braved the icy water to take the plunge in the pond. Other events over the weekend included a variety of kid's snow races, a drag beauty queen contest, arm wrestling competitions, finishing off with a “Cabin Fever Ball” dance. The event was organized by the Pinedale Roundup newspaper and sponsored by EnCana USA. More
