Stop by the Tops parking lot this weekend and say G’day to your local Lions. They’ll be selling some white and milk chocolate Easter Bunny Treats. And while you are there, grab your tickets for the annual ice out contest, where winners who guess the time the ice goes out can win some cold hard cash.
The exact time the ice “goes out” is measured by a weird looking contraption, which resembles a discarded prop from the old Lost In Space TV show.
When sensors on the machine hit the water, that time is recorded and sent to a secret location on dry land. And word on the street is that this year the ice is gonna go out VERY soon. There are wide sections of open water at the south and north ends of the lake.
Tickets are also available from the Chamber of Commerce or any local Lion. And while we aren't offering any prizes, tell us in comments when you think the ice will go out.
