On again in 2017 – THE MRC TRUCK PULL.
Two divisions, open and women’s. Mixed teams enter the men’s division. Theme teams and costumes are encouraged with a prize for the best.
Over $3000 in prizes on the day. Enter* your team of 6 at the bar ticket booth.
With a limited number of pulls on the day it will be first in with a full team until the spots are filled.
Each pull will be held between the races so teams must be ready and at the nominated gate for when the horses are clear.
Fastest time wins the division. The finish line will be directly in front the under croft and grass area on the barrier.
[*entrants must be 18+ and registered to participate.]
Fashion on the field
Proudly Sponsored by Thundelarra Exploration
It’s racing – It’s the Meekatharra Cup and Sprint Race Weekend – so frock on up Ladies and Gentleman. That’s right guys – we have seen some pretty natty dressing over the years so here’s your chance to really show it off and win more than just admiration but also a prize.
Got a hat but no shoes to match – then just enter your hat. A fascinator, a full hat or just a ‘look’ you pulled together that has a bit of a fashion twitch to it…
While we turn out a grand field for fashion on the day don’t think you have to go to all Melbourne Cup, hats are not a requirement
Let’s not forget a mighty fine pair of boots and a checked shirt, worn a certain kinda way, with a bit of a bush hat is a look in itself.
Live Band Performance
As the sun and dust settle over the hill enjoy our catering options for dinner with seating in both licensed and non-licensed areas… Then watch the track lights ‘go disco’, and join in as the band comes out and the dancing begins.
