Ice Pick Contest Raises $9K

BEMUS POINT – The Chautauqua Lake Ice Pick contest has already raised more money than during its inaugural year. Peter Sullivan, event organizer, said $9,000 has already been raised for the contest. For information on the contest or to place a bet, visit www.clakeicepick.com. The first contest was in 2011, when $8,000 was raised for the Chautauqua Lake Association. In 2012, because of unseasonably warmer temperatures, the contest was not held. For this year’s contest, 50 percent of the money raised will be given to the Chautauqua Lake Association. The other 50 percent will be given to those who most accurately predict when the ice breaks, which will cause the pick to fall into the lake. The winner of the contest will receive 25 percent of the money raised. The next five closest guesses will split the remaining 25 percent.
