The Ducky Derby

We have several annual events over the summer,
and one of them is the Ducky Derby. You buy how ever many ducks you would like. Each is numbered.
They are then all dumped at once into Henson Creek, and the first few to make it to the finish line win money. These are the catchers at the end of the Duck Float.
It is a fun spectator event.
There were a few moans and groans when the results were hoisted.
As you can see I get in the spirit of things....pictured here with our Newspaper Editor Grant who is also the President of the Historical Society...and my sidekick when doing the home tours....which is today!
No I did not pick a fast Duck :(
