The 23rd Annual Icebreaker Contest Starts Today!

It’s time for the annual icebreaker contest! We’re hoping spring will soon be upon us, so when exactly will the ice break?  That’s the question facing us as we begin this year’s contest.

In 2012 Lake Nebagamon experienced its earliest icebreak on record, falling on March 21st. The latest ice breakup was on May 14th in 2013. The Official Lake Nebagamon Ice Recorder is none other than our own Andy Mack.  He is already monitoring the lake for the village and will let us know as soon as the ice disappears, whether it happens mid-afternoon or at 3 a.m. Yes folks, Andy spends every waking moment (eating, sleeping, and working!) on the very shores of Lake Nebagamon to let us know EXACTLY when the ice breaks up (correct up to the second)!

To enter, simply fill out the form below. All entries must be received by April 1st. Of course, it would be wise to read the fine print below before making your guess. Winners could be contacted by Bravo TV, the Cartoon Network, VH1, the Discovery Channel, and other major networks and will receive prominent mention in The Arrowhead.  So, don’t wait until the last minute.  Send us your guess right away!


Sweepstakes begins on the day you receive this Arrowhead and all entries must be received by April 1st.

Winner selection and random drawings are under the supervision of Ostrow Reisin Berk and Abrams Ltd., an independent accounting firm whose decisions are final.  Random drawings will be held within 5 days of the ice breaking, no later than 5:00 p.m. at 877 Chardie Road, Boise, ID 83702.  Winners will be notified within 10 days of the selection/drawing.  Any prize or prize notification returned to the sponsor as undeliverable will result in the awarding of that prize to an alternate winner in a random drawing. Prize is not transferable except to a surviving spouse.  Substitution for the prize may be necessary due to unavailability, in which case a comparable prize of equal or lesser value will be awarded.  In countries where cash prizes are prohibited, substitute merchandise of comparable value will be awarded.  Taxes (and any expenses not specified herein) are the responsibility of the winners.  Entry and acceptance of the prize constitute permission (except where prohibited by law) to use the winner’s name, hometown and likeness for purpose of advertising and promotion on behalf of the contest sponsor without further compensation.
