LAKE HEADLINES - February 23, 2018


7th Annual Lake Armington Ice Out Contest is Underway!

Guess the correct Date and Time of Ice Out on Lake Armington in 2018

Deadline is Sunday March 18, 2018.


The object of the "ICE OUT CONTEST" is to guess the date and time when Lake Armington gives up its winter ice to spring water.  An ICE-CLOCK  on shore will be attached to a weight placed on the ice.  When the weight falls to the bottom of the lake due to the ice melt, the power to the clock is cut thus recording the time of "ICE OUT."  The guess closest to the date and time of "ICE OUT" is the winner!  No cost to enter. First, Second and Third Prizes will be awarded!  This could be your year to WIN!!



Email your ICE OUT Guesses to Carlos Manrique at  no later than SUNDAY MARCH 18, 2018.  Prizes will be awarded at a LAA membership meeting this summer.



1. Each Ice Out guess must have the month, day, hour and minute, AM or PM to be considered...and of course the Contestant's Name

2. Unlimited number of Ice Out Guesses per person

3. No cost to enter or win

4. Email your Ice Out guesses to Carlos Manrique at

5. Ice Out guesses will be accepted up to and including SUNDAY MARCH 18, 2018.
