Windsor Optimist Club
7th Annual Duck Race
Sat., July 8th, 2017. Post time: 10 a.m.
Our organization provides many opportunites for our youth and our community. To accomplish this we participate in a few fundraisers around the year. One of those being the annual duck race. Hundres of yellow rubber ducks are adopted and set free down Greeley Nummber 2 ditch. Ducks will be released at the 17th Street bridge over the #2 Canal (behind the Windsor Gardener), and the finish line will be at the 11th Street bridge over the Canal (behind the Windsor Rec. Center). Duck Adoptions are $10 each and are not tax deductible. Cash prizes of $500, $300, & $100 will be awarded!
NOTE: Ducks should take approximately 20-40 minutes to reach the finish line.
Parking is available along 17th Street and at the Windsor Rec. Center and Windsor High School. There is a path along the #2 Canal on both sides all the way from 17th Street to 11th Street so you can follow the ducks as they make their way toward the Finish Line.
To adopt a duck please complete the duck adoption form and send the top portion with payment to Windsor Optimist Club, P. O. Box 83, Windsor, CO 80550. Adoptions must be received prior to June 30, 2017.
