Sunday 3rd July 2016 Patricks' Farm, Hampton in Arden (this side of the bridge)
The date of the 2016 Duck Race has been set!
The annual Duck Race is a fun family event to come along to and it is also a great fundraiser for your local Scout Group.
How you can help?
If you are a parent or carer of a member of the 53rd Berkswell Scouts then you will have already received your Duck Race tickets - please ensure your return them to the name on the ticket stubs as soon as possible. This year we are being allowed to sell Duck Race tickets on Saturday 28th May outside Blooms on the Kenilworth Road and on Saturday 25th June outside the Co-op in Balsall Common. John Page and Norman Thompson will be at both venues most of the day selling Duck Race tickets but we need your help. If you can spare an hour or two please let Norman know.
On the Day of the Duck Race....
The 53rd Scout board will be at the entrance to the field and everyone is welcome to witness the spectacle of 2000 ducks (less those unsold) being launched on the River at around 12.00.
We will be taking the barbecue trays so if you want to stay and picnic after the race then bring along your chairs, tables and food and make yourselves comfortable and relax in the wonderful Warwickshire Countryside. River conditions allowing, then the kids can splash about in the river (under Parental Guidance) so bring along their swim wear and/or a change of clothes!
No charge for admittance, apart from the fact that John Page might make you feel bad if you have not bothered to return your sold tickets. Please help us make this event a success by selling your Duck Race tickets and returning them well before the race day.
We look forward to seeing our Scouts and parents/carers on Sunday 3rd July for the Duck Race..
