Expressions of Interest - Tournament Director

During each year the VBSA runs a number of state and national tournaments, and we appoint a Tournament Director (TD) for most of these events. The TD usually receives a modest payment in recognition of their time and effort.

The VBSA is now calling for expressions of interest from members who may wish to apply for this role for tournaments during 2019 and beyond. You would need moderate computer skills (data entry into online scoring systems), to be highly organised, to be punctual, to be well presented, to be prepared to make on-the-spot decisions in unforeseen circumstances, and to be comfortable speaking to a room full of players and referees.

Members who are interested should email the secretary at info@vbsa.org.au with full contact details and a brief outline of your skills and any relevant experience.

Governor's Picnic

VBSA Patron, The Honourable Linda Dessau AC, Governor of Victoria, invited the VBSA to send a party to her annual Patron's Picnic at Government House on Saturday 16th March 2019. The Board decided to send along some past Presidents & Life Members, plus a few others.  The attached image shows the whole party, except photographer Shelly Ames.  The Richter, Pitt, Chigwidden, Dunn & Ames/Loughron families made the trek.

It was a lovely day in a delightful setting with great people talking about everything OTHER THAN Billiards & Snooker.  Oh well, a little bit about B&S then.
