Rubber ducky pics

Someone mentioned that they'd like to see pics of the Rubber Ducky Derby. My sister took pictures but hasn't sent them to me yet, so I pulled these off the Special Olympic Illinois site. As silly as it seems, it was fun to watch. It is a brilliant way to raise funds and not only do they do duck races, they also do turtles. There is a site that helps set up this type of fundraiser all over the country and there are quite a few scheduled. Go to Duck Race for more information on a race near you. If you want to know more about setting up a race, click the "game home" button at the top of the page.

The duckies being dumped in the river...

"Swimming" along the river with a little assistance...

Getting a picture of the speediest swimmer. This lucky duck won somebody a car...

I would have liked this job, scooping them out of the river...

The police apprehending some wayward ducks...

Wow, this is great! I've never heard of or seen a Rubber Ducky Derby. The picture of the dump truck of duckies made me laugh.

I'm kind of partial to ducks myself.
