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!
