My pick is December 22, 2016. Earlier hard ice than last year, but later ice than the year before.

(I've modified my ice prediction algorithm I have been using that led to the error of my submissions in prior years and am confident that I'm now spot-on!)

No need for anyone else to enter--I've got this wrapped up.

Can't wait to receive my BIG PRIZE!

My son's birthday is Jan. 7th. My guess if no one has that date. Who can add up the days and when does the contest close?
High of 63 in Rochester yesterday. Perch are biting in bays and ponds!
Global warming in OK sometimes! Sorry, Phil!

So are the First Ice Contest guesses closed now?
Did anyone keep track of dates this year?

It's entirely Phil's call when the contest closes, though those entering now or tomorrow or end of this week have a far better chance of being 'on target' for first ice since their guess isn't as far out as some of the rest of our guesses.

It's entirely Phil's call---the Iceman Cometh

Hopefully the snow coming won't hurt too much. Afraid it could really slow progress.
