The GHA Rubber Duck Derby will take place on Saturday, May 18th at the Stanly County Family YMCA Park in Albemarle, North Carolina. All rubber ducks will be provided by GHA Autism Supports (the event organizer) and will remain the property of GHA Autism Supports. *Chances of winning will be determined by the number of rubber ducks entered into the race and the number of available prizes. Approximately 6,800 rubber ducks will be entered into the race. Rubber ducks will be available for purchase until Noon on Saturday, May 18, 2019. *In the event of inclement weather, acts of God or other circumstances, the event organizer reserves the right to cancel the race. Winners will be determined by a random drawing, in its sole discretion. Weather information will be posted at www.ghaautismsupports.org . *Once the rubber ducks are launched, participants may not interfere with any rubber duck. The race course will be determined by the event organizer. Attempt may be made by the event organizer or specified designee to keep the rubber ducks moving. Some rubber ducks may not complete the race course due to natural impediments, hazards, and weather. Such circumstances are random. *A number will be on the bottom of each duck and will correspond to an adoption certificate and/or listing of names and numbers by the event organizer. The person’s name that appears on the adoption certificate and/or list corresponding to the first ducks in the order of retrieval will be awarded prizes. *Entrants assume all risk of non-delivery of any entry submitted by mail. *Any and all taxes, titles, and similar fees are the sole responsibility of the winner.
