Ducks now on sale for Glacier Valley Rotary $10,000 Duck Derby

    Administration Chair Michelle Strickler said on Capital Chat recently there's some new innovation on how the ducks will fly this year.

    Glacier Valley Rotary Club's $10,000 Duck Derby is coming up Saturday, August 6th at Twin Lakes.

    Administration Chair Michelle Strickler said on Capital Chat recently that, "There's some new innovation on how the ducks will fly this year. I'm not going to say anything else, but it's worth coming out this year just to see the ducks fly."

    President Elect Beth Weldon, also a guest on the show, explained how the Duck Derby works. "There will be lots of ducks flying around thanks to Coastal Helicopters. The One People Canoe Society will be paddling around, and that's where our Glacier Swim Club swimmers jump off and retrieve six ducks that have prizes associated with them."

    Strickler detailed the prizes. "If you're the lucky duck winner, the grand prize is $5,000 cash. Second prize is two round-trip tickets from Alaska Airlines. Third prize is $2,500, fourth is $1,250, fifth is $750, and sixth is $500. There's lots of opportunities to win, and even if your duck doesn't get picked, you still have lots of chances to win the day of; we have some door prizes that are fabulous."

    Find out how to get your ducks at the Glacier Valley Rotary Club's website.
