You will be able to print and mail tickets online in another month or so. You will also be able to buy 2019 tickets at Hastings Store in W Danville in another month or so.

Reply: The pond is still well frozen. Before the flag goes down, the ice usually has to turn black. This has not happened yet. We are thinking ice out could be in May this year.

Reply: If the clock stops before the official April 1st deadline, all ticket sales (including online) will halt immediately. Only tickets received before the date/time the clock stops will be considered. Any tickets in the mail will only be considered if the postmark shows they were mailed before the clock stopped. Thank you for the question.

Comment: Hearing shots at north end of pond @ 6:30 this morning. Sun not up. I saw three people in camo gear in boat not 50 yards off north shore drive homes. Did not see guns, but worry about hunters this close to our homes. Is hunting allowed right off shore? Any idea who or what that was?
