VBSA News

Class 2

Jon Moss today underwent the process to complete the transition from Class 3 to Class 2 in Snooker that he described as gruelling. As his examiners, Paul Cosgriff and myself are pleased to announce that Jon has negotiated the fire to emerge unharmed and has successfully achieved that step up in class. 

Congratulations Jon Moss.

Tournament cash policy

 

What's changed?

All members please note that the VBSA is acting in best prudential practices of handling your money.  

At our most recent Board meeting 29th August 2019 it was ratified and voted unanimously that no cash payments should be received when entering events involving the VBSA. 

 

When does this take effect?

To transition this smoothly this will be implemented immediately with unconditional application of this rule in place by 31st December 2019. 

 

What do I need to do?

The Board asks that should you wish to enter a VBSA associated tournament or event that you make arrangements to purchase your entry via either 

  • the PayPal facility on the website or 
  • direct credit the appropriate fee through your bank (Remember to add your name as a reference to allow us to easily identify your entry payment)

For people without access to the internet please enlist the help of a friend or relative to pay & process your entry for you.

All entry forms will indicate this change and already include VBSA banking details.

 

Only paid entries can be processed to the draw. Unpaid entries will not be added to the draw after the closing date under any circumstances after 31st December 2019

This message will be emailed and sent via SMS to all members for their notification and action.  

If you have any questions about this change don’t hesitate to contact any member of the VBSA board who will be happy to help http://www.vbsa.org.au/VBSA/vbsa_contact.php

Australian National Snooker Championship

Matthew Bolton wins the 2019 Australian National Snooker Championship 

As the prestige of the event warrants this was a fantastic event enjoyed by all who took part and watched. A very high standard of play was evident reinforcing the level of skill in the Australian game with several breaks in the late 130's and some nearing the 15 red/15 black target.

 

Congratulations to all who took part and well done to Matthew who won the final against James Mifsud 

 

The post win interview with Matthew is here

Vic Snooker Championship

James Mifsud is the 2019 VIC Snooker Champion

 

 

A field of 50 descended upon the Yarraville Club for the 2019 VIC Snooker Championship

Along the way there were many breaks and a few epic closely fought battles.

We got to the last 8 on Sunday with

  • James Mifsud v Rudy Sulaeman 
  • Adrian Ridley v Josh Gorski
  • Ben Foster v Kurt Dunham
  • Paul Thomerson v Steve Mifsud

The first semi final saw battle between James Mifsud and Josh Gorski. Josh forced James all the way after taking a 3-2 lead but James was able to win the last 2

The second semi final was between Kurt Dunham and Steve Mifsud and Steve was able to take victory 4-1

The final did not disappoint. It turned out to be a like a heavyweight boxing match. Each player winning a frame only to be countered by the opponent replying in kind. After 6 frames they still could not be split. At that point James was able to secure his 2nd win of the season by taking the 7th and 8th frames.

 

Congratulations to all who took part, we enjoyed the event and hope you did too and we look forward to seeing you again.
