This time at its holiday dinner, which was held recently at the South Fork Country Club in Amagansett, the Montauk Rugby Club had something to celebrate — a 6-0 fall season in the Empire Geographical Union’s Division III, into which it had been cast following a winless 2013 Division II campaign. The singular season, moreover, earned Montauk a bye in the first playoff round in the spring.
There will be three Polar Bear Plunges here on New Year’s Day, beginning with the one at Gurney’s Inn in Montauk, which is to be followed by plunges at East Hampton’s Main Beach and at Wainscott’s Beach Lane.
The plungers at Gurney’s are to meet in the spa lobby at 11 a.m.
East Hampton’s plunge is to be held at 1; registration will be from noon.
