Estes Park's annual Rotary Duck Race is just twelve days away on May 7 and the duck committee volunteers are busy with a multitude of preparations. My main task this year is entering adoption form information on each duck sold into a computer at Duck Central. This keeps me busy most week-day afternoons Monday - Friday.
I'm also helping Wayne (Mother Duck) write numbers on new ducks to replace the ones lost last year. He reads off the numbers and I print them on the bottoms of new ducks - a boring, but necessary, task. Several hundred ducks are lost every year.
We got several inches of wet snow overnight. We're hoping that race day will be sunny and free of precipitation, snow, hail or rain. But the race will be run in any weather.
