2015 Dewey Duck Derby Winners

 We had a spectacular plastic duck race on July 4!   It was a nail-biter at the finish line.  One duck was ahead of the pack by several feet at the finish line, only to run out of steam just inches from the checkered flag.  The duck behind that one also faltered at the finish line.  The duck that finally triumphed was duck #392, adopted by Amanda Wilson.  After that, the 2nd - 5th place came in one after the other in rapid succession.

There was a prize for the first duck to be "eaten" by the alligator obstacle.  The alligator must have eaten before the race, because several ducks would get close to going in his mouth, then they floated back out.  Finally, duck #387 went all the way through the gator's mouth, netting the adopter $50 in Dewey Bucks.
