2016 TOP DUCK: Wilder Toyota Team

All employees get involved in Duck Derby It was by chance that Dan Wilder ended up taking over a car dealership on the North Olympic Peninsula, but it was Port Angeles’ good luck that he did. Wilder has been a successful Port Angeles businessman who has believed in giving back — he has been a huge supporter of the community, sponsoring and donating to several organizations. Chief among them is the Great Olympic Peninsula Duck Derby. This is the 27th year he is providing a car or truck to the event. And not only is Wilder involved, his entire team is. They shuttle cars to various sales sites, and last year they sold 2,484 ducks. That earned them the distinction of this year’s “Bub and Alice Olsen Top Duck Award,” awarded annually to individuals who have helped the Duck Derby, the Olympic Medical Center Foundation and the community as a whole. “When we get involved with something, we like all of our employees to be involved,” Wilder said. “Nothing has done this like the duck race. There’s a lot of excitement around here when the derby comes around.” In addition to the annual donation of the Duck Derby grand prize, Wilder promotes the event through local advertising campaigns and an in-store

Wilder was the general manager of a dealership in Sacramento, California, but wanted to own his own store. Through a friend, he heard that the Volkswagen-Audi dealership in Port Angeles was for sale. He purchased it in 1977, and the rest, as they say, is history.

“It was a risk, because we were going through a recession and a period of high interest rates,” Wilder said. “But my wife, Sally, and I agreed that it was worth the risk.” Four years later, he purchased the Toyota Store (then located on East First Street), and in 1985 purchased the Honda dealership. One year later, he added Nissan and Jeep and in 2014 brought Chrysler under his umbrella. He got involved in the Duck Derby in its first year in 1990. “Foundation board members George Wood and Steve Oliver met with me and asked if we might want to donate a car for the event,” Wilder said. “I met with the Toyota general manager at the time, Wayne Murphy, and he thought it was a great idea. “At first I thought, ‘What? A whole car?’ But then I realized what a great way it would be to help out the whole community,” he added. “We have so many great physicians and other people at Olympic Medical Center. “For such a small community, we have a great high-tech facility here. “I personally thought there wasn’t a better institution to contribute to. It is used by everyone, no matter who you are, or what your age, gender or economic status is,” Wilder said. “I truly thought we could make a donation to benefit everyone from Sequim to Forks.”

Alice and Bub Olsen are fondly remembered for their support of the Great Olympic Peninsula Duck Derby. The Bub and Alice Olsen Top Duck Award honors the behind-the-scenes volunteers who make Olympic Medical Center Foundation events, like the Duck Derby, a success each year.

The Bub and Alice Olsen Top Duck Award was created to honor the Great Olympic Peninsula Duck Derby’s stars — those special volunteers who go far out of their way to help make Olympic Medical Center Foundation events succeed. The award is named for the original star volunteers, Bub and Alice Olsen. A longtime Olympic Medical Center Foundation board member,

Bub sold ducks inside Swain’s for 21 years until his death in 2010. He was one of the all-time top duck salesmen, with more than 15,000 ducks sold during nearly two decades as team captain of the Quacker Backers. His wife, Alice, also was deeply dedicated to the Olympic Medical Center Foundation cause. On race day each year, together they hosted the Very Important Duck

Duck Derby 2016

A lucky duck will win its owner a new truck The 27th Great Olympic Peninsula Duck Derby and race is Sunday, May 22, at the pond at Lincoln Park, located in Port Angeles off Lauridsen Boulevard (next to the Clallam County Fairgrounds). The Bub and Alice Olsen VID Race (Very Important Ducks) will be held at 2 p.m., with the main race following at 2:30 p.m. The Kids Pavilion opens at 1 p.m. The catered VID party, for those supporters who purchased VID packages, will be in the old Loomis Tavern building at the race site with lunch beginning at 12:30 p.m. How the Duck Derby works Duck tickets can be purchased from the dedicated people who volunteer their time to sell ducks, many of whom set up shop at businesses around town. For each duck that’s “adopted,” the purchaser receives a ticket with a

printed number, which corresponds to a number on the duck. Ducks cost $5 each or $25 for six. All of the numbered ducks are dumped into the pond at Lincoln Park on race day and make their way across the pond with help from Port Angeles Fire Department volunteer firefighters who use fire hoses to push the mass of ducks across the pond. The “owners” of the first 45 ducks to cross the finish line win great prizes. The generous people and businesses of the North Olympic Peninsula make the Duck Derby memorable for everyone involved. Last year, nearly 26,000 ducks were adopted in a market of 70,000 people in the Sequim-Port Angeles-Forks area, making this race the most successful per capita duck race in the world, organizers said.

Don Dundon, from Wilder Toyota, presents the keys to a 2015 Toyota Tacoma pick-up truck to Mike Miller of Rice Fergus Miller Architecture, the winner of the 2015 Duck Derby.

Jamestown S’Klallam tribe continues sponsorship of Duck Derby

Great Olympic Peninsula Duck Derby mascot Duck E. Duck, also known as Shelly Thompson, stands in front of 7 Cedars Casino in Blyn.

The Jamestown S’Klallam tribe has again agreed to continue to be a sponsor of the Great Olympic Peninsula Duck Derby and other Olympic Medical Center Foundation events during the next few years. “We appreciate the opportunity to help make a difference in our community,” said Jamestown S’Klallam tribal Chairman W. Ron Allen. “We have committed hundreds of thousands of dollars to the foundation over the past 15-plus years, and since our health clinic in Sequim works closely with Olympic Medical Center, we know firsthand what a difference the foundation’s fundraising has done for OMC operations. “We are extremely impressed with the leadership and team addressing the quality of health care in our community. We truly believe that the foundation makes a difference.” Olympic Medical Center Foundation Executive

DUCK DERBY 2016

Kids Pavilion draws in the fun It will be a family affair again this year at the Great Olympic Peninsula Duck Derby. Everyone is invited to partake in the festivities surrounding the main event, especially kids. Each year the Kids Pavilion becomes an entertaining place for children in the community, providing them with arts and crafts supplies and a location on race day where they can meet the Happy Tymers Clown Group, decorate their own duck, play games, win prizes or meet the big duck. The Kids Pavilion opens at 1 p.m. with fun for children of all ages. Maddie Boe is the Kids Pavilion executive director this year and is very excited about the activities that are planned, including the popular Duck Putt game and Ducky Toss. “This is a really great event, and the kids always have fun,” she said. To make this year’s derby the best yet, organizers invite children to come out with their parents to the events on race day at Lincoln Park. The duck derby is not only a chance to give back to our community in the most important way, but it is also a chance for families to enjoy some great entertainment and enjoy some family friendly activities, Boe said.

The Great Olympic Peninsula Duck Derby Olympic Medical Center is deeply grateful for everything the OMC Foundation does to support the health care needs of our community. Thanks also to the organizers, sponsors, volunteers, duck sellers and supporters who make the Duck Derby a success.

DUCKS

The Bub and Alice Olsen VID (Very Important Duck) Race always gets the crowd revved up for the main event. It allows businesses and individuals from Sequim, Port Angeles, Forks and even Seattle to participate to help make this event the largest in Duck Derby history. Matt Bailey at Bailey Signs & Graphics emblazons the VID ducks with their names or logos. They have become very popular and make a great memento of each year’s race. For $275, VID supporters receive a souvenir duck that is used in the VID race, plus 60 ducks in the main race, invitations to a “quackers and cheese” catered race day party and a special parking pass. Not only do the VID purchasers help contribute to the overall well-being of our community by supporting Olympic Medical Center and the other charities involved, but they also have an opportunity to join in the festivities on race day. Ask your local duck seller about becoming a Very Important Duck! The VID race will be held at 2 p.m. this year, which is a half-hour before the main Duck Derby race. The top three finishers of the VID race will receive $500, $250 or $100 cash prizes. This list reflects VIDs sold as of May 9.
