5th Annual LAA Ice Out Contest - guesses are being counted...

Guesses for the date and time of Lake Armington's Ice Out are being counted. The Guess that comes closest to actual Ice Out is the winner!  1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes. This could be your year to WIN!

 

The object of the Ice Out Contest is to guess the date and time when Lake Armington gives up its winter ice to spring water.  An Ice Clock on shore will be attached to a weight on the ice.  When the weight falls to the bottom of the lake due to the ice melt, the power to the clock is cut thus recording the time of Ice Out. The loons are often seen arriving within hours!

 

Contest Rules for 2016

1. Each Ice Out Guess must have the month, day, hour and minute, AM or PM

2. Unlimited number of Ice Out Guesses per person

3. No cost to enter or win

4. Email your Ice Out Guesses to Carlos Manrique at carlosdm345@gmail.com

5. Ice Out Guesses will be accepted up to and including Sunday March 6, 2016

 

To enter email your Guesses to Carlos Manrique at carlosdm345@gmail.com by Sunday March 6.
