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.

It is situated right in the heart of Melbourne within walking distance of numerous cafes, restaurants and entertainment facilities. Further details will be released shortly.

A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

This time of the year is always extremely crowded, and the VBSA is greatly appreciative of all the efforts that are made by so many of our Members. All these events would not be successful without the support that all of you show.

The Reventon International was a terrific success, and we are confident that all who attended found it a very enjoyable experience. The promotion of our Sponsors is extremely important for the health and strength of our great Sports.

Thank you to all the Members who will compete in the Reventon Classic this coming weekend. It is vital that the Classic is successful in its own right, as well as leading in to the Billiards Events. An enormous amount of work goes in to these Events, and we obviously enjoy seeing great players from Interstate, and Internationally.

World Billiards, and especially Jason Colebrook, have created a marvelous Festival for us here in June. And, in October, we are fortunate enough to have the 2019 World Billiards Championships here at the RACV, through the superb efforts of Warwick Loton, and his cohorts, especially David Pitt.

You have all done incredibly well, supporting the VBSA over these last weeks, with Pennant Finals, and so many Tournaments. Let’s thoroughly enjoy ourselves through these days of the Festival, and Remember: The 2019 Victorian State Snooker Championship is only a fortnight after the Billiards finishes! Please make sure you enter.

George Hoy has done a magnificent job in accepting all the Entries for so many Events. Please try to assist George as much as possible, and don’t place any extra pressure on him. The VBSA could not exist without the tireless endeavours of so many people.

Please consider how you may assist the VBSA as the State Sporting Association. We have to have more people involved, and working for the good of our Sports. Please consider how you might contribute, and provide assistance when there’s always so much “work” to be done!

When the World Billiards is on especially, we will need as many of our Members as possible to contribute their own physical support, and presence. Please consider how you might contribute, and support. When our Annual General Meeting is held, in a couple of months, it would be very satisfying to find a Membership base that all want to help, and contribute, in any way possible.

Please remember that your own health, and the health and well-being of your loved ones, comes first. Second, never imperil your own work situation. However, if you then have time, and the physical capability to contribute, then please do so!

The responsibilities incumbent on the VBSA have grown exponentially in the last 5 years. Please provide support for all the Board Members, and all who work so tirelessly for our Sports in Leadership roles.

Thank you for all that you have provided up to now. We now embrace a most exciting Future, and are grateful for all that you provide.

Cheers

Paul
