Deadline approaches to enter ice guessing contest

March 5, 2019

NEWPORT, Vt. (AP) — There is less than one month left to guess how long the ice will last on Vermont’s Lake Memphremagog.

The Caledonian-Record reports participants in the annual Joe’s Pond Ice-Out Contest have until April 1 to guess when a block attached to a time clock will drop in the lake.

Newport Parks and Recreation put a large drawing of a bottle of vanilla extract on the block, naming the facade “Vanilla Ice.”

Last year, the clock stopped at 11:27 a.m. on May 4. The winner received more than $4,500.

Proceeds from the contest are divided between the winner and the Joe’s Pond Association, which plans to use the money on the Gardner Memorial Park Playground and Splashpad project.
