Here is how the Derby Race works

 

After you make a donation, which earns you a numbered ticket,   we enter a "rubber Ducky" into the Derby Race with the number   on your ticket affixed to one of our highly trained Duckys. Only those Duckys that have a ticket sponsor will be allowed to race  in the Derby. Multiple tickets may be purchased.

 

One ticket for each Ducky


On the day of the race, June 7, we release all the Duckys at the   same time into the water at the starting point on Plum Creek. Then all these Duckys RACE like crazy for the finish line.

 

If a ducky with your ticket number is first across the finish line .... you Win $2000!

 

The second place finish wins $750 and third place wins $250

 

           

     Grand Prize - Chance to win $1 Million


More exciting, if your ducky is the first place finisher and has the  "million dollar ticket number".... you Win $1,000,000! 

 

Yes, that is one million dollars. The million dollar ticket number is selected in a random drawing from all the purchased ticket numbers before the race. 

 

Consolation Prize - Chance to win a New CAMARO 

 

If a Ducky with your ticket number comes in second and it has a "New Car Ticket Number" 

 

... you Win a New CAMARO from Medved Autoplex

 

That is right, a New Car.  Multiple New Car ticket numbers are selected at random before the race.

Ducky Derby History

 

At the first Castle Rock Ducky Derby in 1997, only 500 rubber ducks raced down East Plum Creek to a finish line, where the first several ducks earned there sponsors a few prizes. Each year since that  modest beginning, the Ducky Derby has grown to the point that  it now is a recognized and highly anticipated annual event for  Castle Rock and the surrounding community. 

 

The 2013 event was attended by 3,000 to 4,000 people from all over the area including visitors from out of state. Over 8,500 of our highly trained Duckys raced in the Derby.

 

The only cash awards in 2013 were $2000 for 1st, $750 for 2nd and $250 for 3rd.  In addition there were 375 other non-cash prizes awarded to lucky winners, based on how their Duckys performed in the race.  No one has won the $1,000,000 so far. 

 

Most important of all, close to $50,000 net proceeds were raised in 2013 and awarded to local, regional and international Rotary charities.
