Spinney Mountain Ice Out

Post By: Anteroman      Posted: 2/1/2021 10:22:29 AM     Points: 5782    
Well, I wasn't going to do it this year but here we go again.

To those who feel it's not fair you need to get your date choice picked and register after the Monday 7:00pm 2/8/2021 start date.

This gives most a fair chance as you have a week to select.

Any picks prior to the start time and date will not be posted.

I figured those of you who are active on the site will see this and you have a week to figure out your date.

A bit different this year, you can't pick a date until Monday February 8th 7:00 PM MST.

The prize this year will be Ice fishing related.

Good luck and I look forwards to seeing you on the South Park Lakes.

Bill "Anteroman" Hadley

Hello Fellow Members.

Please read the post again, no picks until after 7:00PM February 8th 2021
The two folks who picked, are not valid, please wait until the contest opens, thank you.

Bill - since no one is reading nor following your rules.. I select March 15 through June 15! That should give me a good chance 😁

Looks like AWB won this year he picked all of the possible dates, hang in there guys and gals Monday at 7:00 you can put your date in.
BTW you cheated Jim not like you!
 Reply by: Kithme      Posted: Feb. 6, 7:47:48 PM     Points: 953    
Itís all rigged.

Rules changing last minute.

Someone picking multiple days.

People not following the rules.

Next, dead people picking.

April 1. 🤓
 Reply by: Anteroman      Posted: Feb. 7, 12:41:54 PM     Points: 5782    
All of the dead people already voted in the last election, they are not eligible for the ice out contest.

In about 30 hours those who are still alive and checking the website can select their date, one per person and please look to see that the date your picking has not already been taken.

Good Luck and see you on the lake.

Bill, as a side note... I know your stance on ice.. and how it relates to fishing...

So, if I win... does the prize come in a glass bottle..? And have a cork?

You said itís related to ice fishing after all.

Bill I think you should just let people post duplicate and triplicate dates this year and just go with the first one picked. I'de like to see how many people can't follow your simple directions without being redirected.

 Reply by: Anteroman      Posted: Feb. 9, 8:54:50 AM     Points: 5782    

Sorry no cork in the package, I love my corked beverages but I've always been one of the folks who is a strong believer that the cork doesn't come out of the bottle until, (The nylon is on the pylon)

Thinking about it, maybe that's why I don't ice fish, I've never enjoyed drinking and fishing together, when I get home, that's a different program.

 Reply by: Anteroman      Posted: Feb. 9, 8:59:25 AM     Points: 5782    
N/A look above your post, MXTsinclair has the 29th 2/9 @ 8:42 am

April is full
May 10, 12-14, 17-31 are open

Good luck to all.

I don't even want a date (who ices fishes anyway), I just wanted to say THANK YOU Bill for continuing to do this, in a world where few things are normal anymore, this gave me a bit of hope and reminder on turning the page to a new year's 2021 fishing season. Thanks for that. Perhaps this will be the year I get a GigBob...
