Einstein is back! The Webster Lake Association is sponsoring their 11th annual Ice-Out contest. Proceeds will benefit the Webster Lake Association, Webster Fire and Rescue, and the Reconciliation House of Webster.
Einstein was placed in Lakeview Marine Cove on Saturday, January 20th, at noon. There is a forty-pound weight attached to him. When the ice melts enough for the weight to drop into the water, an attached rope will set off the timer. The winners will be determined by the closest ticket to the exact month, date, hour and minute he went through the ice. Tickets are $5.00, and entrants must be 18 years old. This year the prize money is to be a total of $4,000.
1st place prize is $2,000, 2nd place prize is $1,000, 3rd place prize is $500 and 4th and 5th place prize is $250 each. In the unlikely event of a tie, the prize will be divided equally. Last year’s winning time was February 25th at 1:28 pm.
Tickets must be purchased and received no later than midnight February 19, 2018. Tickets are available at Lakeview Marine, Point Breeze Restaurant, and Pro Automotive of Dudley. You can also play online by visiting the Webster Lake Association Ice-Out Contest website using Pay Pal or your credit/debit card.
