Annual Sunday Father’s Day – Race for Gold
- This year we will be unable to have the actual race for Gold due to the Covid Restrictions. We will however still have the Father’s Day Gold. This is a perennial event where normally fathers and their children “race” down the track for a chance to win 1/2oz of gold (value $1200) , donated by Dr. Cliff Swanlund and the Eau Claire Park Dental Clinic.
- This year we will be different as we are well past Father’s Day. We do however know that we have many excited parents and siblings attending the July Event. At Admission you will receive a complimentary Raffle Ticket. You may collect one each day that you attend the meet. Please hang on to your tickets from all days as they are your chances to win. The draw will happen at 2PM on Sunday. The only rule is that you must be there to win. Still enjoy the annual tradition but a different way to achieve the gold… Have fun..
