2012 Thunder Lake Lodge “Ice-Out Challenge”

The 2nd Annual 2012 Thunder Lake Lodge “Ice-Out Challenge”© will be conducted once again this year via Facebook!  We invite all to participate in this event by ‘liking’ us on our page and commenting for your best guess at when you believe ice-out will occur on Thunder Lake.  Here’s how it will work:

  1. In order to be eligible for the Ice-Out Challenge, you must ‘like’ us or be a ‘fan’ of our page located here:  http://www.facebook.com/ThunderLakeLodgeMN
  2. Entries will ONLY be taken on our Facebook page starting on March 15th at 12 pm CST.  Entries in the blog comments will not count.
  3. You get one guess and one guess only.
  4. You cannot change your answer and your first guess will be the one that takes precedent.
  5. The ice will be deemed “out” when we can no longer see any floating ice from shore  in our bay here at TLL.
  6. The person who guesses the correct date FIRST will receive a free Thunder Lake Lodge sweatshirt.  If more than one person guesses the date correctly, the winner will be the person who guessed that date first.
  7. The contest will begin on March 15th at 12:00 pm CST.  At that time, submissions for the contest will begin to be tallied.

If you have anything that should be added or if you have any questions, just let us know in the comments on Facebook.

We hope to make this an annual tradition at TLL.  We look forward to hearing everyone’s guesses on March 15th!  See you on Facebook!

“See You At The Lake

    The way the winter has been in Iowa, there probable is not much ice on the lake in Minnesota this year. My guess is the ice will be out between April 8th and April 11th. The 8th is Easter Sunday and the 11th is my birthday. The definite answer is April 11th!! See you in August!
