I attended the 2009 Duck Race for Cancer at the Pacific Islands Club on Saturday night. The event was a fundraiser for the Marianas March Against Cancer.
There is little in life more exciting than watching 1500 plastic ducks do a lap around a resort's lazy river. Such is life on a small island.
The crowd clustered around the starting line around 6 PM to watch the ducks cascade down the big water slide at PIC.
Once the ducks were in the water, most everyone followed them along the lazy river.
It only took a few minutes for the ducks to make it to the finish line. I had sponsored 11 ducks. None of them won, but I'm okay with that.
Kudos to the Pacific Islands Club for putting together a fun even for a good cause. Double kudos to happy hour at the poolside bar (half-off appetizers, hell yeah!).
