  • Purpose of Event
    & Use of Funds

Proceeds support Telethon and Rotary projects and programs.

» Read More ...

Funds raised by the Duck Derby are used for the active promotion, support or conduct of the Object of Rotary, as determined by Rotary International, consistent with Heirisson club’s Constitution, within statutory limits for sporting, social, political, literary, artistic, scientific, benevolent, charitable, or other like activity.

Telethon WA (see: http://telethon.7perth.com.au) is an equal beneficiary in gross sales of the event with Heirisson Rotary. Telethon is a registered children’s charitable trust dedicated to raising funds to improve the lives of children and young people throughout Western Australia. Since 1968 it has been supporting the medical and social welfare of children and young people, and funding research into children’s diseases

Heirisson Rotary applies its proportion of proceeds to community, vocational and international service projects and Rotary-related youth programs. Previously these have included significant contributions towards:

Funds are NOT used for the purpose of private gain or any commercial undertaking. Where funds raised are donated to a charity or other community organisation, that entity will also need to confirm what the use of funds will be and that the funds will not be used for private gain or commercial undertaking or benefit.

Conventionally Heirisson Rotary does not donate funds to private commercial organisations, but has on occasion acquired equipment for organisations delivering benevolent, charitable, social, sporting, vocational or not-for-profit services operating on a fee-for-service cost-recovery basis. Recent examples have included:

Through separate funding sources Heirisson Rotary also supports:

  • Ducks, Tickets,
    Sales & Refunds

Duck Derby ducks belong to Heirisson Rotary. All adoptions are final! No discounts, no refunds available.

» Read More ...

All ducks entered will be provided by the event organiser and shall remain property of Heirisson Rotary.

All tickets are sold at the same price as authorised by the permit. The whole purchase price of each ticket sold must be paid before a ticket is issued. Bulk and block ticket sales are not discounted. All transactions are in Australian dollars.

No person under the age of 12 years is permitted to sell or purchase lottery tickets. Prizes won by minors will be awarded to custody and care of their parents or legal guardian on the winner’s behalf.

Tickets may not be sent or posted to any person for the purpose of sale to or by that person, unless their consent has previously been obtained to either buy or sell tickets in the lottery.

Any person who buys or sells a ticket must at the time of the sale, legibly record on the stub of the ticket (or record electronically) the surname and postal or residential address of the ticket holder, or cause such details to be recorded in an approved register.

Refunds of Duck Derby ticket purchases cannot be given if applicants change their minds or make an error or wrong decision. Ticket purchasers are advised to exercise care in purchasing tickets as no refund can be provided once a ticket is acquired.

Refunds on other purchases are at the discretion of the event organiser. Contact information is available under Contact us section.

Each ticket sold, or online ticket confirmation receipt, displays the following information:

  • Ticket number;
  • Price of ticket;
  • Name and contact number of permit holder;
  • Name of organisation on behalf of which the lottery is conducted;
  • Permit number;
  • Description and value of prizes;
  • Ticket sales closing and drawing dates;
  • Name and date of issue of the newspaper/publication in which the results are to appear.

As provided by the purchaser, ticket records will also include the ticket-holder name and contact details.

For online sales, should you not receive a confirmation email receipt promptly (at most within one day) after completing your ticket order, please contact adoptions@duckderby.com.au.

For manual sales:

  • Tickets may not be sold or offered for sale in any street, public thoroughfare, right of way, doorway or any place where it is contrary to any statute or by-law, unless written approval has been obtained from the appropriate authority. Any manual ‘house to house’ sales or ‘door-knocking’ must be restricted to hours between 9 am and 6 pm.
  • Completed entries (in the form of ticket stubs and related proceeds) must be received by 1.00 pm on 20 March 2016. All entries received by an authorised representative must be sent to and received by the event organiser at least one hour before the race.

  • Conduct of Event

The Duck Derby lottery is conducted strictly in accordance with conditions of the permit.

» Read More ...

Purchasers ‘adopt’ ducks through purchase of tickets either:

  • online by e-commerce, where each ticket sold is sequentially numbered and each purchaser receives email notification confirming the ticket numbers they hold. A database records ticket numbers allocated to each sale, and purchaser names and contact information as provided by each purchaser, and other relevant information as indicated on data entry; or
  • manually by block ticket or other manual sales where each ticket in books is sequentially numbered separately from online sales. Ticket stubs record ticket numbers, and capture name and contact information as provided by purchasers.

All issued tickets are included in the ‘draw’ for the event in the form of matching ducks, but online and manual ticket records are not otherwise combined. Multiple duck entries from one online sale will be assigned equivalent ticket numbers and thus tagged ducks for identification. Each ticket sold equates with an ‘adopted’ duck tagged with that ticket number. The number will be attached to each duck relating to the number on an entry ticket in the manner determined by the event organiser.

Not all available tickets may be sold, but if sold before the event tickets may not be available at the Duck Derby on the day. Chances of winning depend on the total number of qualified entries.

Immediately prior to the event, all adopted ducks are held in hoppers that release a waterfall of ducks into Claisebrook Cove from Trafalgar Bridge at start of the Duck Derby.

Once ducks are released, they are on their own. No attempt to free or interfere with any duck is permitted, except in extraordinary circumstances if deemed necessary for public safety or environmental precautions or equivalent reasons by the event organisers.

Ducks are corralled by floating booms into an area oriented appropriately to prevailing weather conditions (especially wind and tide), which propel ducks to the finish line.

Every holder of a ticket has a fair and equal chance, in respect of every ticket or chance held by him or her, of winning a prize.

The first duck that crosses the finish line wins first prize, the second wins second prize and the third wins third prize. Winning ducks are plucked individually from the water and retained for subsequent confirmation of prize-winning ticket holders.

The race-course will close within one hour after the first duck has crossed the finish line and/or been gathered into duck traps. Any ducks finishing after that time will not be eligible for prizes.

Duck Derby entrants need not be present to win.

The person’s name that appears on the entry ticket corresponding to a prize-winner will be awarded that prize (subject to legal majority of the ticket-holder as indicated above). Winners may be required to provide proper identification (eg: manual ticket, online receipt, driver’s licence etc).

Where practicable, winners will be announced at the event at approximately 3.00 pm following the conclusion of the Duck Derby on 20 March 2016. Winners will, where necessary, also be notified by telephone, email or post as indicated on their entry. Winners will also be published as required by conditions of the permit (see above).

The Duck Derby is conventionally overseen by racing and gaming officials, further assuring integrity of the event.

The conduct of this event and the determination of Duck Derby winners will be witnessed by the permit holder and other representatives of the event organiser. The permit holder, in consultation with the event organiser, will make all decisions and interpretations of rules, permit and regulations, and those judgments are final. If deemed necessary, the event organiser has the discretion to modify rules due to extra-ordinary circumstances.

All ducks are subsequently collected, stored, and if necessary retagged for reuse in subsequent events.

The Duck Derby is a public event reliant on availability of its venue Claisebrook Cove and surrounds, climatic conditions, volunteer participants and other significant factors ultimately beyond the control of the event organiser.

In case of inclement weather, acts of God or other extraordinary circumstances where the Duck Derby cannot be concluded at the Cove, the event organiser reserves the right to determine the event result and thus prize winners by alternate means of random number generation or other random drawing as soon as practicable after the nominated closing date, at its sole discretion.

The event organiser and designee(s) may use names, and likeness of Duck Derby winner(s) for promotional purposes without further compensation to the event organiser or the prize winner(s).

A winner is entitled to receive only the prize awarded and the event organiser is not responsible for any additional cost incurred in connection with that prize. No cash equivalent prizes will be provided in lieu of the designated prizes. Prizes will be awarded “as is” and no substitution of prizes will be permitted. The event organiser will have no liability with respect to any prize awarded.

The permit holder and event organiser accept no responsibility for delivering tickets should ticket purchasers provide name or contact details that are incomplete, inaccurate or erroneous, or otherwise changed from those provided on purchase.

Should prizes be uncollected for 12 months, the event organiser will handle uncollected prizes as required under legislation, on advice of racing and gaming authorities.

  • Privacy & Security
    (& Cookies)

The event organiser and permit holder acknowledge that the Privacy Act 1988 (Commonwealth), in particular the National Privacy Principles in the Schedule of that Act, may be applicable in relation to the use of information about individuals obtained in the course of conducting a standard lottery.

» Read More ...

Information gathered during the Duck Derby will only be used by Heirisson Rotary for purposes consistent with its objects and the conduct of the Duck Derby, or as otherwise required by law, and will not be used commercially or for any other purpose.

Lottery regulations and permit conditions require the permit holder (and thus more widely the event organiser and any delegates) to maintain and retain written records of the numbers of the tickets issued for sale, and the names and addresses of persons to whom they were issued, the number of such tickets issued that have been sold and the number of tickets returned unsold. A ticket register is therefore held with following information for each ticket sold:

  • Ticket Number
  • Ticket-holder Name and Contact

with other records of unissued or undistributed, and unused or unsold tickets.

Such information will held with appropriate levels of security, and records will be retained for at least one year as required by permit conditions.

When adopting ducks online for the Duck Derby, card details are transmitted through a secure application programming interface hosted by Main Menu Systems using the TNS payment gateway. Credit card details are not entered or retained on the Duck Derby website, and card data is not stored by Main Menu Systems after processing.

Except as essential for manual processing (should this be necessary for block sales or other transactions), and audit trail control, customer credit card and banking information is not otherwise retained by Heirisson Rotary.
