The 2nd Annual Bob Wells Memorial Rubber Ducky Race will be held at Webb Park on Saturday, April 20th at 11 a.m. immediately following the Hats Off for Volunteers ceremony at the park.

The person whose duck crosses the finish line first receives a $500 check from the Rancho Bernardo Business Association (RBBA), which sponsors the event held in memory of one of RB’s most celebrated leaders, Bob Wells.

Everyone is invited to take part in the Ducky Race. Miniature ducks are sold for $5 each. The ducks are placed in the water in one section of the lake at Webb Park, an industrial blower is aimed at them, and pushes the ducks acro

ss the lake to the finish line.

The first year of the race, 500 ducks were entered and, ironically, the person who bought the winning ticket in the name of the RB Rotary Club was Bob Wells.
