Duck Dash History

In 1987 the North Snohomish County Rotary pledged $10,000 towards the construction of the Arlington Community Youth Center, to house the Arlington Boys and Girls Club. Discusions occured regarding a possible new fund raiser. We had heard of a Rotary Club in British Columbia which held a rubber duck derby. A contingent of club members were dispatched to view their event. They came back with a video tape of the race. About this same time, the Washington State Gambling Commission adopted new regulations which allowed alternative format raffles, such as rubber duck races. We decided to go for it. The first year the ducks were rented from a non profit organization in Canada.

5059 tickets were sold the first year. But, what looked to be a profitable venture almost became a dissaster when the oil boom soaker (spongy material) loaded with water and dipped below the rivers surface. It hardly even slowed down the ducks as they arrived at the Haller Bridge. What a crowd pleaser, as Rotarians and volunteers (two of them on jet skis) went on a rubber duck roundup. The ducks (not owned by us) were rounded up for a profitable event. To read the entire history of the Great Stilly Duck Dash visit this page at the Arlington Rotary club website.
