The Killington-Pico Rotary Club each year engages in several fund raising projects, such as a golf tournament, football tickets, building Adirondack ski chairs, Christmas tree sale, etc. The proceeds from such events help Killington-Pico Rotary to fund its charities and local projects. 
Our Ice-Out Contest returns to the Summit Pond (formerly the Grist Mill Pond). The object of the contest is for the ticket purchaser to guess the month, day, hour and minute that the ice will ‘go out’ on the pond in the spring. The moment of Ice-Out is determined when a 72-pound concrete block located in the Hut drops through the melting ice in the spring.
A timing device will determine the exact moment of Ice-Out.

This is a 50/50 event meaning that 50% of the proceeds (up to $20,000*) will be the winning prize, and the remainder will go toward the club’s charities and projects. New this year, all non-winning tickets will be entered into a raffle for additional prizes.
