When will the ice crack at a UP lake? Guess right and win
An Upper Peninsula community is selling chances to guess when replica mining equipment will fall through ice at Teal Lake as the lake’s ice cover melts. It's an annual fundraiser organized by the Negaunee Lions Club and the Greater Ishpeming-Negaunee Area Chamber of Commerce. “With the increasing popularity of the Teal Lake Melt-Down fundraiser we’re hoping payouts continue to rise each year,” organizers said. In 2019, the winning guess was April 26. The winning entry must be purchased at least 48 hours prior to the structure falling through the ice.
