The results are in.
On a cold, wet and breezy December day a few hardy souls turned up to watch, what is now, the ledgendary SRGC Duck Race.
With the burn running well the junior race was off just after 11am. Then after around 5 minutes the winner was Pink duck No.64 which belonged to George Leonard.
Following the excitement of the fast paced junoir race the thoroughbreds were brought out and released into the fast flowing waterfall at the 7th bridge with an excellent time of 12 minutes 46 seconds Black duck No. 7 crossed the finish. This duck has earned Alan Scott a fine first prize.
The crowed seemed pleased with the results and with the fine mince rolls, soup and mulled wine on offer in the shed (maybe they just came for Ellie’s Mulled wine????)
Thankyou to all who supported, donated to and helped out at this event and we now look forward to a challenge to this time next year.
