MAIN Game returns Sunday

After a two year hiatus, the MAIN Game returns to Castlemaine this Sunday June 12!
A community engagement and major fundraising initiative for local radio station 94.9 MainFM, the day features a game of Aussie rules footy between the Radio Galahs and the Rockatoos at the historic Camp Reserve.
The teams are made up of MainFM presenters, local musicians and other respectable members of the community of mixed ages, all genders and mixed abilities.
MainFM, Sponsorship & Events manager Sue McLennan said they’re hoping the event will help raise awareness and garner interest in the radio station as a lead up to their annual subscriber drive, Radiothon, which begins on June 17.
“We have the Castlemaine Highland Pipe Band, local rockers K5 and dance troupe Lady Fun Times locked in, alongside food stalls, the MAIN Bar, plus there’s a handball competition at half time,” she said.
The MainFM van will be broadcasting live from the event for those listening at home.
Gates will open at midday, with entertainment starting at 12.30pm. Game starts at 1.30pm. Entry $5 for MainFM subscribers, $10 general entry, free for kids under 18. Tickets available at
