The North McAllen Rotary Club held their 2nd Annual Lucky Ducky Derby recently at the pond in front of the Convention Center. The crowd watched as 10,000 bright yellow, bouncy duckies bobbed with the wind currents to race - or you might say paddle - their way to victory. Top corporate ducks were The Shepinator as the Fastest Corporate Duck - Shepard Insurance Agency and Ward Thomas, Majestic Produce's duck was the Best Decorated.
No million ducky dollars were dispensed but Felix Zavala's ducky won him the Sea Doo 150 Speedster donated by F & T Valley Motor Sports. Number 2 ducky won Luis Esparza a water filtration system and Lucky Ducky #3 won Bill Mann hockey tickets.
Flat McQuacky was there to root his buddies on to victory as Paul Stocker and Tommy Cantu rode herd over the vast flock, chucking the ducks who ran amuck back into the yellow rubber bobbers.
