Loon Day is an annual event held by the Guild in May. The first several years the competition was for “loons only” but this year all birds will be included – puddle, divers, geese, confidence, and of course, LOONS! The competition is a donation in that the decoy itself acts as the entry fee. All decoys entered become property of the Guild.

For the Loon Day decoy competition, the judging will take place at the Harkers Island Bridge area with the decoys out in the water and the judges making their evaluations from the shore. The decoys are hidden before judging so they cannot be prejudged from a closer perspective.

The competition carries a $200 first prize cash award, a $100 cash award for second place, a $50 cash award for third place, and a $25 cash award for fourth place. Everyone is invited to participate, regardless of skill, as this is an event to benefit the Guild.

There will be a live auction of the competition decoys, including all the ribbon winners, as well as other decoys and items. We are looking forward to a fantastic auction!
