3. All ducks entered will be provided by the Presenter and shall remain the property of the Presenter.

4. Ducks will be launched in Gore Creek from the Covered Bridge in Vail Village, CO at approx. at 3:00 pm on Sunday, September 1, 2019. The finish line will be below the International Bridge in Vail. The race course will be established by the Presenter.

If winner cannot be contacted with a reasonable effort and does not come forward to claim prize within 30 days of the race the prize will be forfeited.

7. The decision of the judges is final.

8. Odds of winning: The odds of winning depend on the number of ducks adopted/purchased and then put in the water for the race. Not all ducks put into the water will reach the finish line as river forces (rocks, branches and current) will trap some ducks keeping them from going downstream. Additionally, other forces may affect a duck such as human intervention, animal intervention (dogs, ect.) that may capture or remove ducks as they move downstream. Further, inventory considerations (the loss of and the addition of ducks from year to year) may cause some numbering discrepancies. Vail Rotary Club warrants that all holders of duck adoption papers have an equal chance of winning.
