NZBSA President's July Blog

By now you will be aware that the National Championships are on soon.  Look on this website for details of the sections, draws etc.  Why not come along and support those players who are playing.  The venue is great.  Pop in and see how it is going.  If you are out of town then you can watch the results be posted on this website.

On Sunday the 21st July is the NZBSA AGM being held at 10.30am at Snooker World in Auckland.  If you can, come along and support those who have put themselves forward to represent you on the Board.  No pressure, as all positions have already had sufficient nominations, so you don't have to feel that you must put your hand up.   This is your chance to have your say in your sport.  Thanks to those who have offered to serve on the Board.   An important vote will take place during the meeting on our constitution.  It has been circulated around the regions.  Are you aware of this?

Funding has become a serious issue with the decline of every application submitted this year.  We need to look to the future and what we can do.  Hopefully everyone has sold the raffle tickets sent out last month.  This is one way we have to help ourselves.  Remember that regions can earn themselves a bonus by selling all allocated tickets.   Keep in touch.

I wish all competitors and officials all the best for the championships.

See you at the AGM.
