Maffra gives the Guiness book of World Records the boot!

Yes, you read that correctly; the world record for the most people throwing gumboots simultaneously and Maffra is going for it! The Record is 431 currently held by Burwell in the UK.

Registration can be arranged at 9am on the day or but we encourage you to register prior to the event via the website. For further details, please visit or email rotaryclubmaffra@
