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.

Bayside Youth Awards - Marc Fridman

VBSA's very own Marc Fridman was in the limelight again recently.  See what his local Mayor had to say.

"It was an absolutely fantastic night at the Sandringham Yacht Club last Wednesday saluting a group of wonderful young Baysiders at the Bayside Youth Awards. They are examples to all of us and we are so proud of each and every one of them. All in all it was a great night"  Cr Michael Heffernan, Mayor Bayside City Council

Marc received his award in the "Demonstrating creative excellence and leadership" category. Another great achievement, Marc.

Australian Under 21 Championships

Congratulations to Victoria's Matt Curwood & Marc Fridman who won the Australian Under 21 Snooker & Billiards titles respectively over this last weekend at the Brunswick Club.  Matt had a comfortable 5/0 win over Josh Burns (Tasmania), whilst Marc prevailed 321/248 over Josh Burns.  Marc was also a semi finalist in the snooker whilst Josh deserves great credit for being runner up in both disciplines.

Mention must be also made of Teah Raeburn (18) from Victoria & the oh so young, Lilly Meldrum (11) from Queenslan who fought out the Women's Under 21 final, with Teah going on to win 3/2.  And both also played in the Open Under 21s, with Lilly taking a frame in her matches.

Fabulous effort from everyone and just for the record GO VICS!!

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.
