9th Annual Ice-Out Contest

The 9th Annual Ice-Out Contest is in progress. There is not much snow on the ground in Brookfield, and it is warming up quick this year!

Tickets are on sale through March 31st at $5.00 each. Ticket purchasers have the opportunity of guessing when a cement block, attached to an alarm clock, plunges through the ice of Brookfield’s Sunset Lake. The timing apparatus, designed by engineering students in Professor Greg Wight’s mechatronics class at Norwich University, is set on the north side of the Floating Bridge and in a central position on the lake.

Receipts from the ticket sales will be awarded as prize money on the following basis:

  • 25% of prize money for the nearest estimated time to the actual “ice-out”
  • 75% of the receipts will benefit the Brookfield Historical Society

Copy as many of the tickets below as needed and send the tickets with the appropriate entry fee to the designated address. Your continued support of the Society is important and appreciated.
