2013 Duckie Race at the club

The duckie race tickets for the “big swim” on August 4 at 3pm in the brook beside the club are on the move. We have distributed tickets to club members but will gladly accept all offers to sell more on behalf of the Club. The Club has had 1000 tickets printed with the 1000 plastic birds being inspected to ensure that they are ready for the race. Ticket prices are $5.00 each or five for $20.

If you have not received tickets or do not live in this area, the Club can still accommodate you.  If you contact me via email or phone (533.2528) or the postal service (PO Box 44, Guysborough B0H 1N0) I will be pleased to put your name on tickets for your opportunity to win $500 or $300 or $100 or — if you have a couple of strong swimmers — some combined amounts. The only requirement is that I have your money by the end of July so the Club can record your purchases and get your ducks into the race. (Your cheque made out to CAS or the cash will be fine.)

For all who want additional tickets, they can contact any of the Club’s Executive and that person will ensure that tickets are available. The Executive consists of Paula Dobson, Kay Chisholm, Holly Nahrebecky, Phil O’Regan, LoisMacDonald, Brian Farrell and Ray Bates.

So we can record the ducks sold we hope for moneys and purchased tickets to be submitted as soon as possible with July 31 being our hoped-for date for submissions. Marie MacMaster has once again kindly agreed for her home’s side door to be available as a drop-off location. Marie will leave her door’s window slightly ajar for when she is not home. Any of the Executive will also be pleased to accept tickets and moneys.

The duckie race and the chicken barbeque (also on August 4) are major fund-raisers thus your support is necessary, appreciated and — as always —will be extremely helpful to the Club’s ongoing expenses.
