The three Mandurah Rotary clubs, RC of Mandurah, RC of Mandurah Districts and RC of Mandurah City, will again join forces to stage the ninth Mandurah Rotary Duck Race on Easter Saturday, 15 April 2017, in conjunction with a Rotary Family Fun Day and Fair, including stalls, entertainment and activities for families young and old.

Objectives include - to provide a family fun day at Easter to benefit the Mandurah community and visitors; give Rotary some positive public exposure; and to raise funds for Peel youth and Rotary projects and programs run by the three participating clubs.

The Family Fun Day starts at 10.00am with activities for children and family that include kid’s rides, face painting, speciality food stalls and exclusive art & craft works for the family and much much more.

A day long entertainment program showcases local singers, bands and dancers on the main stage throughout the day.

The Mascot Race along the central boardwalk will be on again and this year there will be the Surf Life Saving Race on the water. The Mascot Race is a fun filled spectacular with a no rules race involving mascots from local business and sporting clubs racing against each other to win a useless trophy.

The Family Fun Day and Duck Race is all about Rotary hosting a safe alcohol & drug free event for families in Mandurah, the Peel Region and visitors to Mandurah. Rotary aims to positively promote local businesses such as speciality food, arts & craft producers along with youth entertainment performers and sports & service clubs to the community and through community participation raise funds for charitable donation back to the community at a local, national and international level.

Benefits of the corporate duck race

  1. In 2017 1st prize is a $1,000 Media Advertising Voucher with a media outlet of the winner’s choice. For $50 businesses purchasing tickets in the Corporate Duck Race have the opportunity to $1,000 worth of business advertising to promote their business.
  2. When businesses buy a ticket the business name is allocated to the duck via the ticket number. The ducks are launched in the estuary and the race is over 100 metres and takes around 10 minutes to complete.
  3. A professional race caller (horse racing) will call the race and he calls the position of the duck (business name) on the course over the time the race is held. The name of each individual business associated with the duck is generally called or promoted to spectators multiple times.
  4. If the business buys multiple tickets in the duck race their business name is called according to the number of tickets they have. This means that two tickets = being called out twice as many times.
  5. The business is promoted on the day via A5 laminated business cards pinned to boards at the main Rotary Corporate Marquee and a number of business cards will be available to hand out to people visiting the marquee. Businesses are also invited to use other signs, banners etc to promote their business at the marquee if they wish to.
  6. Businesses in Mandurah cannot buy advertising for their business that equals what Rotary can do for their business.
  7. The best $50 spent by businesses in Mandurah for 2017 will be buying a $50 Corporate Duck Race ticket.
