A Lake Norman Marina’s “Name Our Ducks” Contest!
If you’ve spent time around Westport Marina on Lake Norman, you may have noticed three white ducks that have made our marina their home over the years. We recently came to the realization that for as long as the ducks have been roaming our Lake Norman marina waters, we have never named them.
These specific ducks are not inhabitants of our area, so to make them feel totally at home we want to name each of them, but we need your help! It’s fun and easy. All you have to do is submit name ideas for the three ducks. On August 12, 2013, the most creative entry will receive a $50 gift certificate to our marina store!
“We think this contest will be a great way for our customers to be rewarded for having fun and being creative,” says Lowry Hobbs of Westport Marina. “There are times when we like to engage with our customers just out of pure fun and enjoyment. The pleasures of our lake lifestyle are worth stopping and enjoying, even down to the smallest pleasure like our feathereed friends.”
We designed our contest to be quick because we know you’re busy, especially during the summer months. The contest rules include:
- One entry per person.
- Only one name per duck, totaling three names per entry (two male, one female).
- After you’ve submitted, sit back and relax – a winner will be selected to win a $50 gift certificate to the Westport Marina store on August 12, 2013.
We’ve been doing some brainstorming ourselves. Here are some of our fun duck name examples to get your creative juices flowing, including:
- Alexander J. Quackers
- Drake D. Mallard, III
“We want to give something back to you for sharing your creativity and entertaining name suggestions with us,” says Hobbs. “So we figured a gift certificate to our marina store was a great way to do it. It’s loaded with everything you need to have a great time out on Lake Norman!”
Remember to have fun with this and be creative, it’s what summertime at a Lake Norman marina is all about!
