Duck Derby Rules | Lumsden Duck Derby

Although the ducks don’t follow the rules. They get stuck on the shore, they travel in slow moving groups, they bump into rocks and branches… but that doesn’t mean we don’t have rules.

*The Million Dollar Duck

One duck in every 3,333 ducks in the duck race will be randomly selected by SCA Promotions, Inc as a potential winning million dollar duck.
The potential winning duck numbers are selected prior to the race and kept in a sealed security envelope. At the conclusion of the race, the race auditors will confirm the First Place duck number.
If this duck number is one of the pre-selected potential winning million dollar ducks, the adopter of this duck will be awarded the $1,000,000* grand prize. If the duck number is not one of the pre-selected potential winning million dollar duck numbers, the million dollar prize will not be awarded. In the case that the first place duck is not a million dollar duck, the adopter of that duck will be awarded $20,000(twenty thousand dollars) from the Lumsden Duck Derby.

The million dollar prize is paid in forty (40) equal annual installments of $25,000 each, without interest

6. There are no cash equivalents for prizes awarded, unless otherwise negotiated and agreed to by the prize donor and the prize winner in the process of claiming the prize.

7. All ticket sales are final. There are no refunds once a ticket has been filled out and the ticket stub has been presented to the purchaser of the ticket.

8. There must be only one name present on each ticket. In the event there is more than one name on a ticket, the name appearing first on the ticket will be considered the purchaser of the ticket.

9. Unclaimed prizes will be held in a secure location for a period of one year from the race day. If at that time the prize remains unclaimed, the amount of the prize or cash equivalent will be donated to a charitable beneficiary approved by the SLGA.

About The Lumsden Duck Derby

The Lumsden Duck Derby is a fundraiser held each Labour Day weekend in which 25,000 rubber ducks will race down the Qu'Appelle River, with the first twenty (20) ducks rewarding their owners with a prize!

The Lumsden Duck Derby raises money for Lumsden Sports Association. For example, last years duck derby along with a new provincial matching grant program managed to raise over $40,000 to help pay down the mortgage on the new ice plant and ice-resurfacer at Lumsden's community-owned and operated ice rink, helping to keep down the cost of hockey and figure skating for local families.

Attention Loyal Lumsden
Duck Derby Supporters!

We have appreciated your support for 32 years and we hope you are able to support us again in the future.  Unfortunately, our ducks are remaining in self-isolation this year, but hope to return in September 2021.

Due to the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, we decided to postpone our 2020 event.  We want you to know that the safety of our fans and volunteers is important.  If restrictions lift, we will consider a fundraising event where all proceeds will go towards the 2021 event.  Keep an eye on our social media for more information.

Thank you for understanding and please stay safe!

The Lumsden Duck Derby Committee
