And the winner is... the Tasmanian community The Arena Blundstone Arena came alive in July when North Melbourne took on the West Coast Eagles for the second Hobart AFL match of the year. As a community initiative, the RACT hosted a pre-match curtain raiser in support of NAIDOC week. The RACT Community Cup was organised in association with the Kangaroos and AFL SportsReady, and featured two teams playing a shortened game of AFL Super 9’s footy. AFL Super 9’s is conducted over two 20-minute halves, and focuses on a fast, quick football format. The two AFL 9 teams, which included young Aboriginal players aged 11-14, spent months preparing for the game, and were inspired on the day with a pre-match address by former Geelong player, Ronnie Burns. Fan Zone The RACT Fan Zone saw plenty of action, with free giveaways, face painting and roving North Melbourne players in attendance. The RACT Insurance mascot, aptly named Cubeman, was also unveiled and there was a crowd of eager kids trying to get their photo taken with him! Super Boot Competition 10 lucky local children were selected to take part in the RACT Super Boot Competition. The kids got the chance to get onto the oval and show off their footy kicking skills. Each participant had to try and slot a football through goals from three different areas of the ground. A great time was had by all, with the lucky winner being Jacob Quinn. A blimp in the air Adding colour to the event, the RACT Insurance blimp took to the air above Blundstone Arena, performing a series of tricks and entertaining the crowd. All in all a bumper crowd of 14,113 experienced the magic of live AFL in Hobart during a sunny but chilly winter day in July.
