You Might Want to Hurry This Year!

The Megunticook Lake Watershed Association is once again sponsoring an “Ice Out” contest. The person who guesses closest to date and time the ice goes out on Megunticook Lake will win a $100.00 gift certificate from Maine Sport and a year’s subscription to The Camden Herald.  The Second best guess prize is a $50.00 gift certificate from The Hatchet Mountain Publick House restaurant in Hope.

“Ice Out” is called when a boat can navigate in open water from the outlet dams to the Ken Bailey Bridge where Norton Pond empties into the lake.

Contestants can send their entries to:
LakeWarden@Megunticook.org

or

MWA  P.O. Box 443 Camden ME 04843.

When sending your entry please include your full name and contact number.  Get your entries as soon as possible since the ice might not last long this year; but if you are a gambling sort we will accept entries up to 24 hours from the Ice-Out time. Please, one entry per person. Our Lake Warden, Justin Twitchell, will call “Ice Out”. Here’s a list of recent Ice-Out dates.
Good Luck!
