World record for 'Duck, Duck, Gray Duck' set in MN... kind of

108 people showed up to play at Canterbury Park on Saturday.

It turns out 100 or so people isn't enough to break the world record for largest game of "Duck, Duck, Gray Duck" ever.

Unless you count it as a separate game from "Duck, Duck, Goose" (a more common name for the game), apparently.

An attempt to break it was made at Canterbury Park in Shakopee on Saturday, and despite media publicity and a Facebook invite (on which 751 indicated they were "interested" in going), only 108 people showed.

Afterwards, the event's sponsor, Minnesota-made (and Chad Green-way backed) Gray Duck Voda, seemed to claim victory, declaring it on Facebook "the Worlds Largest Game of Duck, Duck, Gray Duck."

And according to FOX 9, "Officials say the crowd, 108 people strong, was enough to break the record for "duck, duck, gray duck."

In any event, the weather could have had something to do with the lower number of participants, with rain threatening throughout the morning and falling in the afternoon.
