The IcePick is back on the ice of Chautauqua Lake on the Bemus Bay
JAN 26TH for 2013 Season Contest.
Based on a wildly successful Alaskan tradition, the Chautauqua Lake Ice Pick is a fundraiser to support the Chautauqua Lake Association. This fundraiser asks you to predict when a quadripod, placed on the ice at the Lawson Center in Bemus Point, NY, will fall into the lake this spring. In this, the event’s second year, the winner will win a cash prize.
The more participation we have this year, the greater the size of the jackpot!
- The Winner will receive 25% of the entire jackpot! This could be $2000.00 to $5000.00 or more!
- The next five closest guesses will each receive 5% of the entire jackpot! This could be $400.00 to $1000.00 or more!
- The Chautauqua Lake Association will receive 50% of the entire jackpot!
Whoever guesses the minute closest to the time the tripod’s sensor submerges will be declared the winner. Each guess will require a $5 donation and can be made via credit card or by sending a check. The Ice Pick consists of four stabilizer feet and a center pole or “pick”. For the Ice Pick to be officially declared submerged, all four feet of the quadripod but be fully submerged. The Ice Pick will not be declared having fallen through the ice until the moment the fourth foot is through the ice and in water.
Multiple guesses are encouraged and we hope that you will help get the event underway with your support. If you are not interested in participating in the guessing, donations to the cause are, of course, very much appreciated.
The Chautauqua Lake Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to initiating and implementing in-lake management activities to protect and improve the quality of Chautauqua Lake. The CLA’s primary goal is to ensure the natural beauty, safety and utility of the lake as a recreational resource.
