DANVILLE, Vt. - After a long winter, ice-out on Joe's Pond was declared at 10:06 A.M. on Tuesday April 29.

According to the Joe's Pond Association, there are two winners. Kelsey Phillips is from Iowa, and Bill Brochu is from Massachusetts. Both have family living near Joe's Pond.

The Association says some 13,000 tickets were sold this year. Of those, 776 of the tickets called for ice-out on the 29th.

It's not clear how much prize money each winner will collect, but earlier in the spring organizers said the final prize was likely to be worth thousands.
