Capitals’ sponsor reception breakfast

By Kerces 20 February 2007 27

This morning the sponsors of the back to back champion basketballers, the Canberra Capitals, threw a celebratory breakfast for them and any fans who made it to Civic that early.

Because this breakfast was held in Civic, the government decided it didn’t have to hold a civic reception for them (as reported in the Canberra Times). Last year the Capitals got both a civic reception and a sponsors’ breakfast, and all other Canberra championship-winning sports teams have been granted civic receptions.

Quite a crowd turned out for the breakfast, which was hosted by Mix 106.3’s Mark and Lisa, and collected autographs on basketballs (big and small), whacky sticks and posters.

There were lots of excited kids around, some of whom participated in a ball spinning contest. The man in the brown jacket won the double pass to the show, somewhat bashfully considering his age compared to the other competitors.

Breakfast appeared to be hamburgers with egg, though there were men from Lions cooking sausages. There was also flavoured milk and orange juice.

There was quite a lot of media around, as well as man+dog with digital cameras (this is the ABC’s Tim Gavel)

There was some kind of official handing over of the keys to the city with Michael Costello, Jon Stanhope and Andrew Barr but I managed to miss most of it (Bill Stefaniak and Brendan Smyth were also in attendance). Coach Carrie Graf did ask what the keys opened and Mr Barr said anything she wanted.

There were several lots of kids in school uniforms whose parents were trying to hurry them along a bit so they wouldn’t be too late for class.

About 8.45 things started wrapping up but there was still business people on their way to work stopping for autographs.

Might be worth keeping an eye on the offensive ‘artline’ as well.
