If it’s not broke, don’t fix it.

That’s the message that the community is getting from the Betoota Heights Ultimate Frisbee Association (BHUFA) today after breaking the news that champion speed skater Steven Bradbury is returning to their annual luncheon as guest speaker.

For the third year in a row.

Speaking exclusively to The Advocate this morning ahead of the July 13 event, BHUFA president Doug Greenfern, said that young Steven had been such a hit in previous years that it was a ‘no-brainer’ to get him back again.

“He just has such an inspirational story,” said Greenfern.

“A real come from behind victory, we never get tired of hearing it. How it happened two times! Can you believe the odds? I don’t want to give away too much but I really think listening to how Steven won that gold medal and his story, in general, is worth the ticket price alone,”

“Plus, we have a recap of the season. A raffle and then a charity auction. It’s a real fun night. Your press passes are in the mail!”

Tickets to the event can be purchased via the Betoota Heights Ultimate Frisbee Association Facebook page or at the French Quarter Odeon box office before July 11.

A limited number will be made available at the door but Greenfern suggests the event will ‘probably sell out ‘before then.

More to come.
