Second-annual Duck Plucker's Ball set for July 27

OSKALOOSA — What exactly is a Duck Plucker?

Well, in this instance, a Duck Plucker is anyone who would like to participate in a fun-filled event hosted by the William Penn Athletic Booster Club.

Funds raised at the event will support the continued progress at the Stadium at Lacey Recreation Complex to benefit WPU athletics, Oskaloosa Community Schools, and Mahaska County Recreation programs.

The event will kick off with Field Games from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. at the Izaak Walton League including two different Quail Walks and a sharp-shooting contest. People are invited to bring their own gun and ammunition and show off your shooting skills. Prizes will be awarded to the top shooters.

The fun continues at the Penn Central Mall with silent and live auctions, dinner, contests, and raffle drawings. Don’t miss out on a chance to bid on fantastic packages including a guided bear hunt in Maine, a week-long trip to Burson’s Delta Resort in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, a complete set of tickets to the Knoxville Nationals, custom furniture, original artwork and much more.

Guests are encouraged to participate in any of the evening’s contests including the “Camo & Carats” Best Dressed Contest, Best Table Decoration, or prepare an appetizer made of their catch or kill to enter in the Wild Culinary Creations Contest.

Raffle drawings will also be held for a Remington 700 Classic Deluxe 243 rifle and a Weber Spirit Gas grill donated by True Value Hardware.

For an updated list of silent and live auction items, registration forms, and payment information, visit www.wmpenn.edu/duckpluckers or find us on Facebook under “Duck Plucker’s Ball”.
