PABI 2018 Ice Classic

Time Left to Enter








The Clock is Running

The Ice Classic Tower is freshly painted and in place on Paradise Bay.  So, the clock is now running on your chance to have some fun and help support PABI by entering the 2018 Ice Classic.  All you need to do to win is predict the date and time this spring that the Ice Classic Tower will fall through the ice.  Tickets to enter your carefully researched and scientifically supported prediction (or your guess) are just $5 each or six for $20. The person who picks the correct date, hour and minute the tower goes into the water receives half the proceeds. The other half goes to support the BIC Center and WVBI.

Your research can begin by having a look of the record of past winners shown below.  The rest of your prediction planning we leave to you. You must get your entry in by March 21 at 5:00 p.m.  The countdown timer above shows how much time you have left.  Entries may be made by U.S. Mail to the BIC Center or by handing your completed ticket to any PABI board member or to any BIC Center staff member at the BIC Center. Special thanks to Ron Wojan who refurbished the tower and hauled it out onto the ice.
