After the awards, stick around for the raffle drawing. Tickets for the raffle will be available at the Boulder Junction Chamber along with local restaurants and shops.

Many other fantastic prizes will also be raffled off. Tickets are just $1 each or six for $5.
All tournament and raffle proceeds will go to the Boulder Junction Area Boat Landing Improvement Fund. The Fund, which is made possible by the Boulder Junction Chamber of Commerce’s annual ice fishing tournament, Frozen Tozen, has been in existence since 2007. Over the past 12 years, over $15,000 has been given to projects which ease accessibility to area lakes. The most recent donation, in the amount $6,000, went towards the purchase of new aluminum roll-in pier at Upper Gresham Lake as well as improving the White Sand Lake Landing including new blacktop.
