Default Flagpole

In the 50's there was a raft apparatus in Weirs Bay with a flagpole. When the ice melted enough for the flagpole to fall, that triggered a clock and a winner was declared. This was an explanation from my father, so I really don't know much more. Anybody know when the tradition about the Mount and her four ports started? That seems more "recent", but it may be that it is just more widespread now that we have internet. Before that, I doubt it was reported much outside the circulation area of the Laconia Citizen.
