It was time to hand out the Ice Out Contest cash to the big winner Mike Grady who was staying in Eagles Nest this weekend.  Cliff stopped in, to peep in Mike and Ruth’s windows and scare them but they were not around.  Without a pen and paper to write a note, what better way to leave a note but in the sand

It was not too long before Mike stopped over after fishing to get congrats from Cliff.

Mike had to console Carmella who he beat out by just a few days.  Doggie snacks anyone

Our Ice out 2011 winner is Mike Grady who picked today April 19th as his day for Cliff to plunge into Lower Kaubashine.  Mike was a 2nd place winner a few years ago getting his 5 dollar coupon to Hilltop Bar in a previous contest.  Congrats to Mike and also to Ruth where ever she is…

We looked over the hill to see Cliff this afternoon floating away

Troy pulling him in as usual.  We are missing his chair somewhere and will have to do a dive for it when it is warmer

Cliff coming into dry dock to drip dry.  Tomorrow he will have snow piled on top of him

We have a tie for 2nd place and it made me happy to dig in my files and come up with another interesting picture of Linda Hoadley.  Linda had April 20th picked and will receive a 5 dollar coupon to Hilltop Bar along with…

Danny Ross who is on the right side of the picture who never gets excited about winning anything.  He will have to have Grandma Char take him to the bar because he is not 21 yet and will have to stick to Root Beer for his 2nd place win.

Thanks to everyone for following along this spring… Until Ice Out 2012 Cliff goes back into the closet to come out for special occasions… Like a trip to Hilltop for a drink with LInda with her winnings

Mack had not met Cliff yet and was a little freaked out by the strange guy out on the ice who was missing his head

Circling around to the other side of the headless guy on ice

Never seen anything like this before

Definitely a stinky guy after being in the closet for a year

Cliff sporting a new look in a matching vest this year.  We put away the purple one he has worn the last few years

Enjoying the late afternoon sun on Lower Kaubashine
