Ice-Out Contest 2016 ~ Lake Rosseau

Ice-Out Contest 2016 ~ Lake Rosseau

Spring is coming, and it appears to be coming to Muskoka rather quickly.  Not bad news in my opinion. Last year the ice left the lake in front of the Cleveland House and J.W. Marriott area on April 21st.  Will the ice be out earlier this year?  I think so!

I invite you to submit your ice-out date prediction for the area of Lake Rosseau between Ouno and Wistow Islands and SWS Marine.

The prize is the same.  Dinner for two with myself and my wife at my favorite fine dining room in Muskoka.  The Port Carling Golf and Country Club. John and Kevin are incredible chefs. 

Here is a chart indicating dates prior to last year.
This chart is for the Windermere area of Lake Rosseau.

Submit your ice-out date to me:

Deadline for entry is: 11:59pm (EST) on March 24th, 2016. 

I will announce the winner here after the ice goes out for this area of Lake Rosseau. If there is more than one correct prediction I will draw your name from my hat. In the event there is no correct prediction I go by the closest date entered.  

Good Luck, and may the earliest prediction be the correct one!
