Where do you keep all those ducks?
Our rubber ducks are actually rented through a fundraising company called GAME. Through our contract with GAME, they supply us with all of the ducks for the race, adoption number stickers, the adoption papers, event support and more!
How do you know which duck is mine?
Every duck in the race is assigned an adoption number. If you adopt a duck via adoption paper, each paper is numbered and that would be your official adoption number. If you adopt a duck via another outlet, we will assign you an adoption number when we input your duck into our database, therefore every duck adopted has a number assigned to it. This number is then placed on the bottom of each duck for the race!
How do you keep the ducks from escaping down the river?
Thanks to an environmentalist company from Cincinnati, Clean Harbors, the ducks remain in a controlled area for the race. Clean Harbors sets up booms in the water, which is a like a long string of buoys, from the drop point to the finish line, keeping the ducks from escaping!
Do I need to be present to win a prize?
You do not need to be at the Rubber Duck Regatta to be a winner! The names of the winners will be released to the media at the event and all winners will be notified on or before Monday, October 3rd. Prize pick up must be scheduled with the URS Duck Central team and be picked up URS’ office.
If I adopt a Quack Pack, how do I receive my FREE Jersey Mike’s Sub?
A single-use coupon will be mailed to you for each Quack Pack purchased.
Do I need to know my adoption number?
No. When the winning ducks are pulled from the water we look at the sticker on the bottom to see the adoption number. We have a laptop at the finish line and search our database for the number, the number then pops up with the name of winning duck’s owner!
How do you pick the winning ducks?
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the winners of the 2022 Rubber Duck Regatta will be randomly selected via computer.
How do you get the ducks out of the water?
URS has an army of volunteers that help us! The past several years we have had Boy Scouts in canoes helping to push the ducks closer to the water’s edge. We then have a large group of volunteers on land with nets and laundry baskets who scoop the ducks out of the river and put them back into the dumpster they were dumped from!
