On Saturday September 12th the Chedabucto Curling Club held their Annual Ducky Race. This event would normally occur during Come Home Week in conjunction with the Annual Chicken Barbecue which unfortunately had to be cancelled due to Covid-19. Although the water was shallow in the brook next to the club, we were able to release a record number (1,000) of bright yellow ducks and allowed them to voyage down the brook to the finish line. Prior to the race our master duck handler Kay Chisholm made sure that all the ducks were swimmers. An attempt was made to use a live Facebook video so all who could not make it to the event could watch it live. Unfortunately the live feed cutout just before the finish line. We also did a video of the event taken by Holly’s daughter Robin.
This year’s winners were:
1st place: Alistair Brow $500.00
2nd place: Iris Stanley $200.00
3rd place: Kenneth Connolly $100.00
The club would like to thank all those who supported this event by either
helping with race or purchasing tickets.
