April 18     2015 Annual New River Raft Race a/k/a Kon Tiki Returns

Join us for a fun day and support Rotary's effort in the community.

The Rotary Club of Fort Lauderdale is happy to announce our hosting the fourth annual New River Raft Race at Esplanade Park on the New River, Saturday April 18th, 2015 from 3:00 PM to 7:00 pm.  The race will start and finish on the river in front of Esplanade Park. This is located next to the Broward Center for the Performing Arts and across from the Museum of Discovery and Science.  The race theme is “Pirates of the River”, so decorate your raft and crew.  The race is more of a parade than a speed event as all rafts must be human powered only.  Participants and spectators are encouraged to bring water guns to squirt rafts and spectators as they paddle or float by but they should beware as others will be squirting back.

 

Rafts will be judged on a several categories including first to finish (ok, it’s kind of a race), best design, most spirit and most piratical crew, among others.  The fleet will paddle and splash on the river in front of Esplanade Park where they will compete for prizes to be awarded at the party in the park immediately following the race.  There will be food and grog (beer) available to adult pirates (with a photo ID) and water and soda for the younger buccaneers.

Participants may either build their own rafts or for $750, the Rotary Club’s members will build a 6’x10’ raft (suitable for a crew of 3 to 5) for you or your company.  Your raft will be available the morning of the race for you to decorate prior to launching.  For those with larger crews a larger raft, 8’x12’ may be commissioned for $1,000.
