Baraga Ice Melt Contest
Guess when the Ice Melt barrel will fall through the ice of the Keweenaw Bay and win 50% of the net ticket proceeds!
1 Guess $5, 5 Guesses for $20, 10 Guesses for $40, 30 Guesses for $100
Contest closes at midnight, Sunday, March 15, 2020 or earlier if the clock drops into the lake before March 15th. Tickets must be in the hand of the Baraga County Chamber by that moment, otherwise they cannot be accepted.
Ice Melt is the exact time the barrel’s clock is submerged into Keweenaw Bay. The closest guess to the exact date/time determines the winner. In case of a tie, winner will be determined by first date of ticket sale. Winning ticket is worth 50% of net ticket proceeds. In the event that any unforeseen occurrence (malicious act, tampering, acts of nature, or otherwise) makes it impossible to determine the exact time of ice melt, or if the clocks fail, all entries will be entered in a drawing to determine the winning ticket. All decisions of the Ice Melt committee are final.
Profits go to Baraga County Chamber of Commerce.
Entries can be made online or dropped at one of the following locations: Baraga County Chamber of Commerce, Baraga County Convention and Visitors Bureau, L’Anse American Legion or Skippers Bar & Grill.
