Looking for huge icicles

To the editor:

We are experiencing an exceptional icicle-growing season this year. The Woltner Summit Contracting Spike of Ice Icicle Contest will be held behind the Ice Palace Sunday, Feb. 2 with registration at 2:30 p.m. Icicles must be transported to the judging site. Judging will take place at 3 p.m.

Icicles must be naturally formed without any internal form of support. The final measurement will be the largest, intact piece of ice. (Broken pieces won’t be added in.) A children’s division and an adult division are judged in this event.

The contest is sponsored by Woltner Summit Contracting. A home energy audit will be awarded to the largest “residential” icicle. Medals will be awarded for first and second longest icicles overall (residential, commercial and multi-dwelling). The children’s division also has first- and second-place medals.
