VBSA Member Survey

VBSA MEMBER SURVEY
NOVEMBER 2017


The VBSA strives to keep abreast of current trends.  Indeed, we’d like to think we are trend setters in some aspects of the game.  To do this requires the involvement of many dedicated and forward-thinking people who are constantly assessing the environment in which we operate, including both nationally and internationally.

In this survey, you are being asked to provide feedback on the following topics, being

  • Dress Code
  • Pennant Changes
  • Communication Preferences

that, if the suggested changes are accepted, may be put in place for the 2018 competition year.  Accordingly, your prompt response would be appreciated.

We would also like your input into Participation & Improvement.

And because especially the Pennant Changes issue has major ramifications, the VBSA strongly urges you to participate in the survey so that a meaningful assessment can be made of the responses.

Please click on this LINK to commence the survey.

Whilst the Survey is targetted at VBSA members, the input from Affiliates is also welcome but please indicate your status when asked to do so in the survey.

If you have any queries about the survey, please contact info@vbsa.org.au.

The Survey will remain open until Friday 8th December, 2017.

Thank you for your co-operation.

Welcome Ryan to the UK

CORRECTION - I got it wrong (fancy that) !!!!!!!!!

Ryan Thomerson recently arrived in the UK to pursue his career in snooker. Shortly after arrival in a practice session with Neil Robertson. Neil made a 149 (3rd Oct) and a 147 (5th Oct) !!!  The 149 - Neil broke off and snookered Ryan. Ryan attempted to come out of the snooker off 2 cushions to glance off the reds, missing the pack and leaving the white on the bulk cushion. Neil potted the brown in the middle as a free ball then opened the reds off the blue and went on to pot another 2 blues with the rest being blacks for a 149. Welcome to the UK Ryan !!!!

Interested in the stats on breaks over 147? Have a look at Wikipedia "Maximum Breaks"

Reventon Final

Chris Christofi and his Reventon Group dropped a huge bombshell on snooker this weekend with his announcements at the conclusion of the Reventon Finals held at the Academy. 

Huge increases in the prizes on offer, brand new tournaments with brand new concepts with huge benefits for the elite of our game right down to the grass roots at junior and new player levels.

The potential to attract overseas players next year is central to the concepts with the real possibility of reciprocal invitations for our players in their tournaments.

All this after a sensational weekend with the 10 best players nationwide competing for a $12,000 winner take all prize as well as two excellent and fun filled OneforSeven tournaments held concurrently just before the grand final on Sunday. In the words of Caroline Ruscitti, winner of the women's OneforSeven, "What a great time to be playing snooker". Johl Younger who won the men's event aslo commentated on the exciting things ahead in his thanks to Chris after the main event.

That event was of course the Grand Final between perrenial champion and V.B.S.A. life member, Steve Mifsud and young upstart and joker Ryan Thomerson.

It must be said that although Ryan seemed to get the rub of the green in more situations than Steve, his break building and especially his long potting was a joy to see and were the main contributors to his 6 frames to 3 victory.

He has grown into a fine young man and gentleman and will be an excellent Australian snooker ambassador as he takes up the challenge of a stint in England.

CONGRATULATIONS RYAN THOMERSON - 2017 REVENTON WINNER.
