PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

Greetings All

Thank you to everybody who assisted with our Pennant Competitions, dealing with the loss of the STAR and Dunya venues. Mark Dunn and Simon Fortune were superb in dealing with a very complex issue, but they really needed a great deal of cooperation from all of you, and for that we are extremely grateful.

This is a very busy time of the year for all of us, however, I would like to highlight some Tournaments that are in addition to our Pennant Finals responsibilities.

The Reventon International (24/5 to 26/5) is the most money that’s ever been provided for one of the VBSA/ABSC Events. As such, I would exhort all of you to make every possible effort to be an Entrant or attend as a spectator. We’re very fortunate to have Reventon providing so much support, and we need to show our support for all their Events.

The Entry Fee will enable you to play in the Tournament, as well as the Consolation Plate (worth $8000 alone), and attend the Saturday night Dinner, and Calcutta. Great value!

If you examine the Website you’ll see that a very attractive offer has been made for Accommodation, and it would be ideal to be able to take advantage of the offer.

Two weeks after the Reventon International, we will hold the Reventon Classic, utilising the old City of Melbourne format. This is an opportunity to be allotted a Group, on the Saturday 8/6, where you will have the experience of playing against some of the best players in the world. Don’t miss being one of the first Entrants for the Field of 96.

The Reventon Classic is followed immediately by the Pacific International Australian Open Billiards, and the Australian National Billiards. These Events have the VBSA “front and centre” on the World stage and need every possible support that you may provide. Please submit your Entries as soon as possible.

If you’re not a player of Billiards, please consider how you may support the VBSA in these Events. Perhaps you could assist with collecting International players on their arrival at the airport, or even in assisting them to be at the Snooker venues on the Saturday, or at Yarraville on the following days?

Our Association is only as strong as all the Members who make the effort for our sports.

Thank you for your support and interest.

Reventon Presentation

A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

All VBSA Members, and Members of our Affiliates, would be aware of the manner in which the Reventon Group, and the CEO and Founder, Chris Christofi, have been so supportive of our sports.

The VBSA wishes to recognise the Reventon Group, and provide an opportunity for our Members.

There will be a Presentation of “Make the most of the money you earn” by Chris Christofi, in April. Having attended previous presentations, I am relieved to report that there is no “hard sell”, and that it could be quite beneficial to some of our Members, Families, Friends and Staff.

The Presentation is at the Yarraville Club, 135 Stephen Street, Yarraville 3015 on Tuesday April 16th. Food & Drinks are served on arrival at 6pm. The Presentation should commence at 6:45pm.

This opportunity is for anybody who is a home owner, with a mortgage. Couples should have a combined income of $120,000 or more, and singles $80,000 or more.

The Reventon Group are offering $2000 towards your investment, for any Member or Associate of the  Australian Snooker Community, and a $2000 VISA Card for anyone providing a Referral.

Any VBSA Members, or their families and friends, who would like to attend the Presentation, to see & hear how they might benefit, should click on this LINK to register.

The VBSA would never wish anybody to place themselves under financial pressure. The Reventon Group is providing advice for those people, who are able to freely utilise an investment opportunity, without any pressure from anybody.

Thank you for your time and attention.
