As part of the Discovery Days celebration over the weekend, the Birch Bay Chamber of Commerce hosted the Ducky Derby rubber duck race, which pitted fowl against fowl in a race along Terrell Creek. The chamber posted the winners on its blog, and I thought they deserved to show up here, too.

The "owners" of the first 10 ducks across the finish line got prize packages, with awards also going to the 32nd place finisher (it was the 32nd annual Discovery Days) and the duck that got dead last. From the Birch Bay Buzz blog:

1st Place – “Kayla” – Dianne Farrow

2nd Place – “Wiebe” – Dianne Weibe

3rd Place – “Jones” – Liam Crosby

4th Place – “Butch” – Shawn Waters

5th Place – “Justin Bieber” – Hosman Family

6th Place – “Wackey Dackey” – Gordy Lang

7th Place – “Mourigu” – Al Kruse

8th Place – “PPA” – Gail Walker

9th Place – “Basket” – Mary Mumoy

10th Place – “Charlie” – Sona Shelzi
