Megunticook Lake Ice Out – Thursday, April 13 at 2:20 PM.
Lake Warden Dale Dougherty called Megunticook Lake Ice Out yesterday, April 13, at 2:20 PM. He expected it to go out earlier in the day with the brisk winds but ice blocked a section of the lake across from Bishopwood Camp.
And the winner of the 2017 Ice Out Contest is? Elias Libby! The reason for the April 13th date, it’s his birthday! Elias guessed the correct date and was only 10 minutes off the correct time. He received his first prize, a $100.00 gift certificate from Maine Sport and a one year subscription to the Camden Herald, from Warden Dale and Megunticook Watershed Association President Maureen Flanagan.
The second place entry wasn’t too far off. Deborah Roberts guessed 1:59 PM, just 31 minutes off the correct time. For her efforts Deborah will receive a $50.00 gift certificate to Viking Lumber and Building Supply.
Ice out for Moody Pond and Norton Pond was called today, April 14th.
Thanks for all the entries this year. Be safe on the water, it’s still really cold!
