Ducks will be raced on Sept. 15 at Spring Brook at Blackwell Forest Preserve.
The duck race prize winner will be announced during the "Night for Nature" video premiere on Sept. 16 at 6 p.m. at the Forest Preserve District's Facebook page. The prize winner will also be contacted by email communication.
A number (1 – 250) will be attached to each duck relating to the number of the official online purchase. Multiple duck entries on one online purchase will be assigned a separate duck number for identification purposes. The person whose name appears on the purchase that matches the winning duck will be awarded the $500 cash prize. Positive identification will be required to claim a prize.
The race committee reserves the right to postpone or reschedule the event because of inclement weather, acts of God, or other circumstances beyond the committee’s control. In case of inclement weather or unforeseen circumstances that prevent the launch of the ducks, the cash prize will be presented through a random drawing.
The sole winner need not be present to win. Winner will be announced following the event. Winner will also, where necessary, be notified by telephone, email and/or certified U.S. mail. If a winner does not claim his/her prize within 30 days of the race date, or if the Friends’ presenter is unable to contact winner due to insufficient or illegible contact information, or if a winner is deemed ineligible to win a prize, presenter will select a substitute winner by random drawing of entries. All prizes will be awarded. Prize winner must be individual at least 18 years or older. Winner must show proper identification when claiming a prize. Prize may not be substituted or exchanged.
