Presentation Night

A hearty thank-you to everyone who came along to the presentation night and collected their prizes, cheques and our grateful thanks for all the support during the year.

Here's the presentation from the night:



Drone Footage of the Raft Race.

Ever wondered what its like there out on the water? Wonder no more - Bill Muir kindly gave us this video of this years raft race. 


2014 Raft Race is complete.

Another fantastic year - great rafts, over 1,000 folks on the field after the event, pipers piping the rafters up from the river, and a number of new events:

  • The Piano Smash
  • The Climbing Wall
  • The Rodeo Bull

Many thanks again to everyone who rafted, came along, helped, and made the day the success that it was. 


Thanks for a Fantastic Raft Race Day!

Race day started overcast. In fact, overnight, it was raining - hard. There was a touch-and-go moment in terms of water level - the river was high - but we got the go-ahead. 16 Rafts entered, 15 came down in one piece. 

We'll post photos and scores over the next few days as we recover from the marathon effort of setting up and clearing the park. We'll also announce our presentation night date in the near future.


Marykirk's Got Talent!

We're hosting a talent show on the day of the raft race. We've split it into a junior (under 18) and senior (18 and over) event, and each segment will have a half hour slot on our main stage during Raft Race day. We'll provide the PA and microphones - you'll need to supply anything else you need on stage.

We'll need to see you before the event to make sure you're happy with going on stage, and I'm sure enough folks will be around to give you any assistance and encouragement you'll need.

To enter, please fill in the form on the Talent! page - and someone will get back to you.
