McKinnon Secondary College Development Program
The below message from VBSA President, Paul Cosgriff, to Pitsa Binnion, McKinnon Secondary College Principal, and Lachlan Noble, Deputy Principal. 
Dear Pitsa and Lachlan
Thank you very much for the opportunity to be at your very fine School yesterday. The time spent with your students was extremely rewarding, and a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
Please convey my appreciation to all the staff and students involved, and, especially your Snooker Captains Holly, Ashley and Tom. They are a credit to themselves, and to their School.
The time spent with the younger students was very pleasing since they showed such enthusiasm and well-mannered respect for both the facilities and the adults in the room.
It was terrific to have the time with you all, and I was especially pleased that  VBSA Marketing & Development Oficer, Jemma Wines, was able to be so involved and supportive. I very much enjoyed having Jemma's children, Beau and Finn, in the photos, and their pleasure in being part of your School Community is quite noticeable.
The visit to your School was a highlight for me personally, and the VBSA is greatly appreciative of the installation of the tables into the School, and the manner in which your students have been introduced to an appreciation of our great Sports.
All the Students comported themselves extremely well, and are a credit to your fine establishment.

With gratitude
Paul Cosgriff, VBSA President

2022 Australian Open Champion!!

Steve Mifsud triumphed 6-5 in the Australian Open Final, defeating Roger Farebrother in an exceedingly high-standard contest.

In the 11-frame final, Roger compiled 4 breaks of 45 or more, while Steve provided 5 breaks of 50 or more, showcasing the skill and precision we have missed, at this venue, since 2019!

The enthralling tussle had Steve leading 1-0 despite Roger’s break of 45. Roger then made breaks of 76 & 81 and “stole” the next on the final Black, to lead 3-1.

On resumption, Roger led 4-1, before Steve fought back to 4-3 with breaks of 64 & 65. Responding with courage, Roger’s 54 break brought him to the brink of victory at 5-3.

Then Steve provided a magnificent finish for the spectators, with breaks of 50, 61 & 64 to achieve the Championship Win 6-5!

Steve has now won the Australian Open Championship on 7 occasions, and the far wall of the “Mounties” Billiard Room had a montage of photos,  highlighting (a younger) Steve, and the Final, when he played Dene O’Kane in front of our former Prime Minister, Bob Hawke AC.

Attached image shows Frank Dewens (ABSC President), Steve Fitzpatrick (“Mounties” Vice-President), Steve Mifsud and Roger Farebrother.
