Also found a story about duck racing in vermont... July 27, 2002 - Barre VT FF Duckie Race Fundraiser A $1,000 grand prize is being offered as Barre firefighters try to raise the money they'll need to fully restore a 130-year-old fire wagon - an 1872 Torrent - so that it can eventually be displayed in the city's new public safety building. The Barre race will be held in conjunction with this year's Homecoming Days celebration. Following the parade planned for July 27, numbered rubber ducks will be dumped into the Winooski River. If the duck you purchased with a $5 donation is the first to down a short stretch of the river you'll win the $1,000 grand prize.!!!!!!! WOOWOO Seems this is in our blood, to race ducks, up here in new england.... lLOL not quite the same as old england though.... and the cold. Heheheh
