Charlie is on the ice!
It’s time for the 2020 Ice Out Contest.
Will you be this year’s winner?

This is Charlies 11th year of sitting out on the lake. We’d love to have you be a part of our Ice Out Contest. Charlie almost had to take a year off this year. With all the snow we had in November the ice has been more like Swiss cheese than solid ice. But thanks to the bitter cold last week we were able to snow shoe out and set Charlie in place.

There are 2 ways you can send us your guess:

Send an email to [email protected]
Post it on our Facebook Ice Out post

Please do not forget to give both DATE and TIME that you think Charlie will fall through the ice. Only guesses with date and time will be accepted.

In the 10 previous years ice has gone out 3 times in March, 4 times in April and 3 times in May. The earliest he has gone out is March 19th and the latest is May 6th.

All guesses are due by March 10th. No guess after March 10th will be recorded as we will be on vacation. The person whose date and time is the closest will be the winner and get their name on our Ice Out Contest plaque. If Charlie falls through the ice during the night the date will be credited to the next day. Sue and John will be at the Madison sport show February 28 – March 1, the Milwaukee Sport Shows March 4-8 and on vacation from March 11-29. Scott and Kelly are hanging out at the resort and will be keeping an eye on him for us.

We’ll begin posting updates as soon as we are back at the resort on March 30th. Have fun everyone! Get your guesses into us soon.

There is plenty of ice and SNOW still on the lake.
