Einstein will be placed in Lakeview Marine Cove on Saturday January 18th at noon. There is a forty pound weight attached to him. When the ice melts enough for the weight to drop into the water an attached rope will set off the timer. The winners will be determined by whoever guesses closet to the exact month, date, hour and minute. Tickets are $5.00 and entrants must be 18 years old. This year the prize money is to be a total of $4,000.
