What a magnificent weekend of State Team Playoffs!
Thank you to each and every person that made the commitment to get yourselves to Sydney and have crack at making NSW State Teams. You all made the weekend a fantastic experience and the atmosphere was simply awesome.
I would like to thank Matthew Haly from Master Billiards for providing a fantastic venue and four freshly clothed tables to play out event.
Thanks to CL&S for shipping six brand new sets of Pro-Cup Balls to us to play with.
Thanks to Aimée Firkins for assisting all weekend with the event admin and scheduling and airport runs.
Thanks to Melissa Commisso Crawley for all the event organizing, catering and social butterflying throughout the weekend... plus the mad feed last night after everyone came back to the house before the flights home.
THE NEW GUYS:
It was awesome to have some new players getting involved in NSW 8-Ball.
Eddy Jenkins is a Penrith local and participated in his first NSW Championship and will take his place in the State Team this year.
Braydn Fahy & Kevin Fahy made the trip from Orange NSW to play in the Men's & Masters divisions.
Thanks for coming over guys, it was a pleasure to meet you both and I look forward to catching up again soon.
It was great to hear about all the 'two-shotters' playing in Orange and I am hoping to get over there to help out where I can with the local association.
Thanks to Gary Mullane and Andrew Silverman for making the long journey from the far north of NSW.
Thanks to Christopher Laught for coming up from Mittagong and having a dip.
We know there are pockets of players out there that love playing two-shot pool and we are pleased that we have been able to provided an opportunity for our game to be played here in Sydney.
We are already looking at hosting other events at Master Billiards to further help the growth of our game in NSW.
After a weekend where over 1,000 frames of pool were played, three eskies of drinks were drunk, 25 boxes of pizzas were consumed, many stories were told and lots of laughs were had, we managed to successfully fill three state teams.
The NSW Eight Ball Federation have pleasure in announcing the 2019 NSW State Teams... (See Attached)
For all the players that made the state teams, you will be contacted by Melissa Commisso Crawley in the coming weeks with all the information / costings leading into Nationals.
