And the winner is………

Charlie finally took the plunge one day sooner than he did last year. May 5th is the official day for the 2014 Ice Out Contest.

 

We had three people who chose today as the day;

Peggy Pride – 9:06 AM who voted on Facebook. Thanks Peggy for your interest in our resort.

Susie Morter – 1PM – Susie has been vacationing here since 1988

Alyssa Heeringa – 3:28 PM  – Alyssa’s mom won it last year and has been vacationing here since  2009

Drum roll please…..The winner is Peggy Pride as Charlie took the plunge early this morning.

Honorable mention goes to Susie and Alyssa.

Thank you to everyone who guessed this year. It’s always fun to see the dates people choose. In the five years we have been doing this we have had two ice outs in March, one in April and two in May.

As you can tell in the picture there is still a lot of ice to melt on the lake, but with the temps in the 60’s the next couple of days it will be gone soon!

 

Charlie floated to shore and made it easy to retrieve him. John pulled him out of the water before I could get a photo. He'll sit here until tomorrow to do some drying out.

The geese are enjoying open water wherever they can find it.
