Duck Race Regulations
(1)All ducks shall be positioned above the river at the same location and shall be released simultaneously. Once dropped, the ducks shall enter the river without interference or obstruction.
(2)Once the ducks enter the river, the ducks shall not receive human assistance until the race is concluded.
(3)The ducks shall be identified so that each duck corresponds to a separate numbered raffle ticket. The method of identification of the ducks shall be waterproof.
(4)At the finish line, the licensee shall construct a boom which will be designed to act to funnel the ducks to a chute. The chute shall be constructed so as to allow one duck at a time to pass through. The boom and the chute shall be reasonably secure. The boom shall be wide enough to capture the ducks that reach the finish line area as they move down stream.
(5)The course for the race shall be established so that the race may be observed by raffle purchasers. The length of the course shall be established so that the race will be conducted in less than one hour. The licensee shall conduct a test of the course, by releasing a sample of ducks and observing their progress, within one week prior to the race date. Once the race has started, a course shall not be altered.
(6)If a duck race is not completed in 90 minutes from the time the ducks are released into the river, the race shall be terminated and the licensee shall conduct the raffle by drawing tickets from a container as provided in OAR 137-029-0290(1)–(5).
