GMG Rubber Duck Fundraising Race Event On Tap For This Spring

With The Stupid Amount Of Rubber Ducks Arriving Daily, City Councilor Melissa Cox Came Up With Yet Another One Of Her Brilliant Ideas-

A GMG Rubber Duck Race At The Good Harbor Beach Creek.

We Will Need Duck Collectors In Wet Suits To Insure No Wayward Ducks Make Their Way To The Ocean On The Outgoing Tide.

So here’s what I’m thinking

When we announce it this spring we go down to the Good Harbor Footbridge, sell ducks for $5 a pop, number them and put folks names corresponding to that number on the sheet and get some swag gifts from area businesses and do 25% of the money collected to the winner of the duck race and 75% going to a local charity. From the footbridge to a lobster pot line stretched across the entrance to the creek.  we could also have a huge picnic party on the bank of the creek at Good harbor Leading up to it!

Sound Good?

  2. I think someone in a kayak and a fishing net could score some ducks and make sure they don’t make it to Salt Island.

    We do a rubber duck race here in Tucson. It is also a fund raiser and annually is a great success. Your guidelines sound very similar to what has worked for us. We have a wonderfully philanthropic car dealership owner who some years makes a car available as part of the whole event. Obviously, those years mean a bigger $$$ for a duck…Great fun. Good Luck

    The Kennebunkport Rotary has a race like this in the river up there. I can try to find out if there are any other wrinkles to think about.

  8. Love this idea and sounds like another good time
