Duck Race

The innaugural Nightcliff Football Club Duck Race was held and won on Sunday the 10th February at the Darwin Waterfront Wave Lagoon.  1000 little rubber ducks were released in two heats of 500 ducks per heat.  The winners of each heat won themselves $100 with the top 100 ducks through to the Grand Final.

Winners on the day were:

Heat 1 - #76 - Shervill
Heat 2 - #784 - John Greenoff


1st Duck #196 - Bruce Sampson
2nd Duck #352 - Denis Carroll
3rd Duck #429 - Frank Grabarz

A huge thankyou to all the people who helped sell ducks for this event and of course to the people who bought them.

There was a big crowd that gathered to watch and from all reports it was quite a fun event!  Look forward to doing it all again bigger and better next year!

Thankyou also to the Darwin Waterfront Corporation and The Precinct Tavern for their support on the day. $2 for every duck was donated to The Rotary Club of Darwin Sunrise and we thank them for their support on the day.
