“Bring Back the Bullets” Promotion: NBL Basketball quest for the return of the Brisbane Bullets team

Hi all

My home city of Brisbane temporarily lost its team in the National Basketball League (NBL), the Brisbane Bullets, in 2008. There are now positive moves to find new owners. Last week I attended a “Bring Back the Bullets” promotion in Brisbane’s King George Square. The promotion also doubled as publicity for the weekend’s NBL basketball game between the Cairns Taipans and the Gold Coast Blaze at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre. Here are some pics:
