Rotary Club of Summit County announces that the ice device has fallen
The Rotary Club of Summit County announced on Tuesday, May 7, that the ice device has taken the plunge. Rotary placed the device in the middle of a frozen Dillon Reservoir on March 9.
The device, when the ice melts, plops into the water, freezing its internal clock in time and making some shrewd person out there a cool $4,000 with the chance to earn more.
Every year, the club’s fundraiser sells about 5,000 tickets. Having a ticket means you get to guess when the device — a 55-gallon drum full of air and weighted on one side — takes its spring plunge. After it’s been retrieved, the club checks the clock and identifies the winners. Last year, the device dropped on May 6.
The first-place winner will receive $4,000. Second- and third-place winners receive $2,000 and $1,000, respectively. The first-place winner will draw one card from a deck of cards. If the ace of spades is chosen, the prize will increase to $9,000!
