This year we have another great line up. Headling the lunch is sports legend Steven Bradbury. The Australian former short track speed skater and four-time Olympian won the 1,000 m event at the 2002 Winter Olympics after all of his opponents were involved in a last corner pile-up. He was the first athlete from the Southern Hemisphere and Australia to win a Winter Olympic gold medal and was also part of the short track relay team that won Australia’s first Winter Olympic medal, a bronze in 1994.
We also have the privledge of having Collingwood AFLW Captain Stephanie Chiocci. A highly respected leader and brilliant defender, Chiocci has made history as Collingwood’s inaugural AFLW captain. Skillful, quick and daring, she provides plenty of drive off half back and through the wins.
We are also excited to announce that Jobe Watson will be part of the panel. Jobe is a legend of the game, having captained Essendon between 2010 and 2015 and become one of the greatest midfielders of the modern era. He is dual All-Australian, three-time W. S. Crichton Medallist and representative of Australia in the 2014 International Rules Series.
He was also the face of the Essendon playing group during the club’s most turbulent period in the history of the VFL/AFL, when 34 players were suspended as part of the Essendon Football Club supplements saga.
They will be joined by local funny man, Simon Kennedy as our MC for the event.
We suggest you arrange a group of people to attend and purchase a table together. Tickets can be purchased individually, with option of being allocated onto a specific table. Otherwise, tables of 8, 9 or 10 can be purchased.
