2002 Ice Princess to be coronated today

DILLON – The coronation of the 2002 Ice Princess will take place today at the Dillon Town Hall.

Dozens of women, men, children and pets were nominated by friends, coworkers, family members and enemies to be Summit County’s first-ever Ice Princess. Ballots are cast with money; the candidate garnering the most earns the coveted title. The funds will go the the Summit County Rotary Club’s scholarship fund.

The 11 a.m. coronation will be followed by a parade to the edge of Lake Dillon, where professional watch-makers will place a clock on the ice of the reservoir. The clock is rigged to stop when it falls in the lake, and the person who submitted a guess closest to the actual date and time of its falling wins $2,000.

Tickets, which cost $2 apiece, are available at local banks and from Rotarians in Summit County.

The parade will be lead by Grand Marshall Sally Croker and the newly crowned princess. Runners-up will ride along on ATVs.

For additional information, call Sally Croker at (970) 262-3403.
