The Benton Lake Watershed Conservancy of Cologne is hosting their 2nd Annual Ice Cribbage Tournament on Benton Lake. The event will feature the largest on-ice cribbage board, which will stretch more than 190 feet across the lake’s surface. The goal of the family-friendly event is to draw attention to the work that is taking place to clean up Benton Lake and to raise money to continue that process. Each player will play a total of nine games against nine different players. Cash prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place of $150, $100 and $50 respectively. The first-place winner will also receive a custom-made cribbage board. Everyone is encouraged to join the event, even if they are not playing cribbage. Participants and visitors can also enjoy ice fishing for kids (with prizes), family snow sculpture competition (with cash prize), hockey rink, food and drinks, fire pits on the lake, raffle, and free door prizes.

When: Feb. 22. Registration for cribbage begins at noon, with play scheduled to start by 1 p.m.

Where: Benton Lake, Cologne. Parking is at St. Bernards Church

Cost: $10
