Hosted by Macedon Ranges Shire Council with assistance from the Victorian Government’s Bushfire Recovery Events Program, the event was an opportunity to thank our emergency services for their work in protecting the community during the February grassfires which swept through the Macedon Ranges.

To the delight of all involved, the match resulted in a draw with five goals, four points apiece to the two teams – Volunteers v The Rest of the World.

AFL veteran, Robert ‘Dipper’ DiPierdomenico, coached the volunteers team and is pictured at the quarter-time huddle talking strategy with his players.
