Manley owes its existence to the Missouri Pacific Railroad, which built its main line from Atchison, KS, to Omaha in 1881-82. This line traversed Cass County south-to-north coming through Avoca, Weeping Water, Manley, and on to Louisville.
40th Annual Quackoff Saturday, January 25, 2020 at 8 AM Avoca, Nebraska
Message from Avoca's newsletter editor Melissa:
We’re only days away from the 40th Annual Quackoff, we hope you all are getting as excited we are... We just wanted to put a few reminders out there for everyone that’s coming whether you’re an experienced quackoffer or this is your first one.
This is a fundraiser for the Avoca Volunteer Fire Department, all donations are greatly appreciated and go towards life saving equipment and training for our volunteers. There will be a boot to collect donations at the town hall and also there will be Fire Fighters walking around with a boot to fill with donations.
•Make sure you bring cash as there will be no ATM or credit card machines available.
•Registration is the same $25 and will be at the town hall as always. T-shirts are also $25, make sure to get your 40th annual shirt to show off to everyone who didn’t come.
•The event is BYOB but there will be a Beer Garden with alcohol and food sales at the intersection of House St. and Teft St. right between the town hall and the race track. Beer garden and food is brought to you by Baileys local of Eagle Ne. There will also be concessions at the town hall as well.
•The races will be held at the tennis court as always.
• Make sure to dress for the weather as this is an outdoor event and it is the end of January.
•Make sure to take pictures and tag us on Facebook @duckraces to share your experience!
•Most importantly make sure you have a great time and be safe!
