VBSA Honour Boards

For some time it has been recognised that the VBSA has no place to recognise the contributions of its volunteer Board or Life Members who have collectively contributed so much to this great organisation and game of ours.

To have a physical, traditional Honour Board is not an option with the VBSA not having a physical home, though Brunswick Club has been a unofficial home for many years.  Consequently, a digital Honour Board will be prepared and displayed on the VBSA website.

In preparation for this, the attached lists have been started and I now ask that you

  1. Provide some feedback on the above proposal e.g. are there people/sections we are not recognising that should be?
  2. Fill in some of the many gaps & correct some of the no doubt many errors within the two lists.

It is worth noting that any member can nominate another member for Life Membership so if you have someone you think deserving, in accordance with the Section 9 (2) of the VBSA Rules, then please contact me to commence that process.

Pennant ByLaws

The board of the VBSA wish to advise all pennant players that Rule No. 8 of the current ByLaws (Matches) has been revised to clarify that if any player were to be in arrears by 10 points plus the value of the colours remaining after potting the final red, then the player would be allowed to finish that turn at the table and that the frame may only be claimed or awarded if the 10-point rule can be invoked at the conclusion of the turn.

It is also to be understood that any player with the advantage of that rule and is ahead in the frame by enough points has the right to claim the frame at any time during any turn at the table as soon as the rule comes into effect.

Please refer to below LINK to view updated ByLaws.

Thanks to Shelly Ames for highlighting this issue.

2017 Pennant Snooker Season

Pennant Team entries closed 17th Feb. 59 (yep, we missed one) teams have been entered, thank you all for your support. Season starts - Mon 27th Feb.

 

Please note the following fixtures have been revised at 9pm on thurs 23rd Feb. A State Snooker (AVS1), C State Snooker S1 East  (CVS1E), D State Snooker (DVS1) and B Premier Snooker. C Premier round 13 Dandy Club v Star has been switched to Star v Dandy Club. Sorry guys, yes it happens !!!!!!!!!! Will notify everyone!

 

Please Note: On Monday nights have combined A State & B State Snooker into 1 grade which will be A State Snooker (AVS1). Had 11 teams entered between A & B State so had to put one team down to C State that was South Oakleigh Club (thank you Warren & team mates for your understanding and cooperation). This made 11 teams in C State, explored the option of moving a team back into D Grade and could not find a suitable choice so have split C State into "C State East S1 (CVS1E)"  & "C State West S1 (CVS1W)", (sorry, could not think of a better description) had no other choice.

 

Important - C State Snooker East - SOC (South Oakleigh Club) is closed for renovation for the first 5 weeks of the season. Their home matches will be played at "Star Ent Centre"

 

Please Note: in 2017 Peter Politis will be taking on the role of Score Registrar. Yes, after 16 years as Score Registrar it is time! As Peter does not know players and teams as I do, PLEASE fill in the your score sheet with first names and surnames printed clearly, please photograph and email to scores@vbsa.org.au (sorry the SMS option is no longer available).

 

I would like to thank everyone for putting up with me for so long, I will still be playing with the website and assisting Peter to get started.

Regards Alan Croft
