Contest Terms and Conditions

Ice-out is declared when safe navigation can occur between Merrymeeting Marina boat launch (west end of the lake) and either of these two eastern landmarks: Adler's Cove or Camp Pride. Validation of safe passage will be confirmed by data from either/or independent webcam and independent visual observation by a pre-selected third-party observer. In the event of equipment failure, the Feet First Watersports ice-out judges will determine the time of ice-out based on available information. The judges’ decision is final and binding.
