Deepings Lions Virtual Duck Race 2020
Closing Date To Sponsor Your Duck is: 2.00 pm Saturday 5th September 2020
THE DEEPINGS LIONS VIRTUAL DUCK RACE – 2.00 pm SUNDAY 6th SEPTEMBER 2020
Many events thoughout the country have been cancelled this year BUT The Deepings Lions wanted our Duck Race to go ahead so our Community didn’t miss out on the fun and money for the charity SENSE could be raised. And so it is … although not in a form as you know it. All our ducks, including that massive one which made its first appearance on the Welland last year, are up for the challenge and will be seen again in a movie broadcast on Deepings Lions Facebook Page. We also hope to develop other ways to view the Race.
The movie has been produced from videos and stills photographs of Duck Races from previous years. After the main race is over the winning numbers will be selected at random and the winners announced. Included in the movie, amongst other items, will be the return of Professor Diamond and his popular Punch and Judy Show. That giant duck is also desperate for a name – so a Duck Name Competition is being arranged, he is going quackers without one. The full programme of events will be announced here on the website nearer to Race Day.
We hope that everyone will get involved and support the event. Why not dedicate the 6th September as “DUCK DAY”? Build a duck in your garden, buy some duck hats and whistles, paint a picture of a duck and display it your windows, decorate your garden with duck bunting, make your own hook a duck game – the little ones would love that! In fact just go wild about ducks … And remember to take some photos of what you have done and send them to Deepings Lions firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to see them posted on our social media sites*.
You can also publish them with the #duckrace2020
It’s a fun event for all the family and you may win a cash prize. And what if your duck name won the Competition? Oh think of the glory …
