Duck Race & Scavenger Hunt Results

September 3, 2013

Waterville Valley was full of activity this Labor Day weekend holiday!

>> Check out photos here and here.

Sunday was a blast starting at 11 a.m. with live music from Jimmy & Marcelle, the #wvfamily Scavenger Hunt and the End of Summer Bash for the kiddies.  Nearly 100 kids jumped around the bounce house, painted their own duck, and met Bruce the Moose!  It was a quacky time!

Five hundred duckies “raced” across Corcoran Pond on Sunday to benefit the Bridge House Shelter in Plymouth, NH.  A $100 cash prize was up for grabs for the first duck across the finish line.  The lucky $100 winner, Ed McAbe, graciously donated his winnings back to the Bridge House.  Guests were in a giving mood as the second place winner, Cathy Bentwood, also returned her $50 prize to the Bridge House.  The third place $25 prize went to Rachel Keisling.  Overall the event raised over $1,000 for the Bridge House.

Two families will be heading to a Red Sox game compliments of Waterville Valley Resort, the official resort of the Boston Red Sox.   All of the families who successfully completed the #wvfamily Scavenger Hunt had their names entered into a random drawing for the grand prize – four tickets to a Red Sox game.  Congratulations to the Lisa McNiff family; you’ll  be heading to Fenway Park!  A separate drawing was held and four more Red Sox tickets were won by Patti Torres!  Have fun McNiff and Torres families!
