ABSC Member Survey

The ABSC is currently updating its Strategic Plan for the period 2024 – 2028, and a vital part of this is to get as much feedback as possible from members of the billiards & snooker community on the issues that are important to them.

A short survey has been developed which focuses on a number of key issues, and which also provides the opportunity for comment on other matters that you would like to raise.  The survey is completely anonymous.

Here is an opportunity for your voice to be heard, and the more responses we get, the more accurately the Strategic Plan will reflect the views of our community.  So, all members are encouraged to complete the survey, which should only take about 10 minutes of your time.

Click on this LINK to start the survey.

The survey will close at midnight on 17 September 2023.

Message from the VBSA President

I am very proud and humbled to announce our team of incredibly talented people are now members of the Board of the state recognised cue sports organisation, the Victorian Billiards & Snooker Association.

Full release should be distributed on all channels by Monday.  Details of the new board can be found here https://www.vbsa.org.au/VBSA/vbsa_contact.php

Huge recognition and thanks to all of the outgoing board.

We thank all the members who took the time to come to what I believe was one of the highest attended AGMs ever to support all the nominees. We will work tirelessly to repay that trust and support and grow our sport.

Alec Spyrou
VBSA President

ABSC President – Expressions of Interest

Frank Dewens will retire as President of the ABSC, in accordance with the constitution, at the 2023 Annual General Meeting on Saturday 14th October.  Frank has undertaken the role with great energy, dedication and distinction for the past 10 years, and his leadership will be sadly missed by cue sports both nationally and internationally.

The ABSC Board is now seeking expressions of interest from suitably qualified individuals who would like to be considered for the President role, for an initial term of 3 years.  This would suit someone with a passion for the games, a willingness to represent the sport nationally and internationally, sufficient time to make an active contribution and some experience managing a small organisation, drawing on the skills of other Board members.  A Position Description for the role is attached.  Expressions of interest should be lodged by Tuesday 26 September, and directed to the Secretary-General, Simon Fortune at secretary@absc.com.au in the first instance.

The new President will be ratified (or elected if there are multiple candidates) by the Member States of the ABSC at the 2023 AGM, and will take office at the conclusion of that meeting.

Frank would be delighted to mentor the incoming President in an unofficial capacity, and any questions about the role can be directed to him at president@absc.com.au,  to the Vice-president Alex Render at rendersnooker@gmail.com or to Simon Fortune.

David Collins Snooker & Billiards open

David Collins championship was a great event.

 

Congratulations to Aaron Mahoney for coming up with these events, the ever present and helpful. George Hoy, Bassam Elbelli (the photographer and with his lovely wife as the Master Chef???? duo), David Collins offering hours of billiards tuition for free and the rest of the team who helped make this event happen. 

Special mention to Kevin Stone who  was kind enough to sponsor it.

 It was a real community effort.

 Without this collective effort these events would not happen.

 Let's encourage the players who took part to give back by helping with the next one ????

 If you guys ever need help let me know.

 I might be suggesting this particular event at Hampton. ????

Thank You

Alec Spyrou
