Schroon’s Ice Out: Cash In


The clock is ticking: when the ice will go out this year, in the Schroon Lake Lion’s Club’s 13th annual event?  And with the contest set to close on March 31st, get your best guesses in ASAP.

Tickets are available from any Schroon Lions member, at the Schroon Lake Chamber of Commerce, Flanagan’s Pub, and Friedman Realty or by calling 518-532-9022.

We recently got an up-close look at the Star Wars like robot -- a long lost cousin of R2D@2 perhaps?  – when there was still a good 15 plus inches of ice.

When a weight drops through the ice, the precise time of the event is wirelessly transmitted and recorded on dry land.

Tickets are $5 for six choices or $1 per single choice.  Prizes include 30 percent of tickets sales for first place, 15 percent for second place and 5 percent for third place. And it’s all for a good cause: 100 percent of the proceeds from this and other Lions fundraising events to support various community projects.

Watch this space for the winners!
