Ice Out Lottery - 50:50 Raffle - When Will the Ice Melt?

The Lake Attitash Association is running a 50:50 Ice Out raffle this winter! What is an Ice Out raffle? You can buy a raffle entry to guess the final date when the ice will melt on the lake. The more entries you buy, the more dates you can pick, which means the more chances you'll have to win!

Half of the proceeds will go to the winner and half will go to the Lake Attitash Association. Tickets may be purchased for $10 each and you can register and pay below.

You may purchase as many tickets as you like. Anyone can join in the fun! Tell your family and friends and get a little competition going - who will guess the closest date? Only time will tell.

Who decides when the ice is finally melted?
The LAA Ice Out committee will decide. The committee is made up of LAA Board Members who have volunteered to take on the responsibility of monitoring the lake from the four viewpoints this winter.

How will the LAA Ice Out committee decide?
The lake will be viewed from four locations – the Birches Dam, the Boat Ramp, AALLSIA beach, and Alnette Road in Merrimac (overlooks Back River). The first date on which there is no visible ice anywhere on the lake surface, at 2:00PM, will be declared ice out day!

If there is more than one winning entry, a single winner will be selected by a random drawing conducted by the committee. If no one selects the winning date, the winner will be the ticket that selected the closest date to ice out day.

The winner will be notified by the email provided. No entries will be accepted after February 28th or if the ice melts before that, whichever happens first.

Registration is now closed. Thank you for entering and stay tuned as we monitor the ice throughout the season.
