Congratulations to the Kahibah Sports Cobras who managed to defeat the minor premiers, the Kahibah Sports Kingpins by 2 games to 1, in the 2109 Elwyn Jones Billiards Shield.
Both Kahibah teams had a great season and the Kingpins pipped the Cobras to take out the minor premiership. However, the Cobras extracted some revenge by prevailing in a hard fought Grand Final.
A special thanks to John Duchatel who put his recent Grade 3 Refereeing Certificate to good use in officiating one of the matches. Also to Belmont 16′ Sailing Clubs Brian Bourke and Peter McKenzie for their assistance. Belmont 16′ Sailing Club also played hosts for the Grand Final with their newly reclothed tables which were a pleasure to play on.
Grant Schubert took out the season high break with a 148.
Congratulations to the Tennis Club who are the 2019 Tony Tamplin Shield Minor Premiers. The Tennis Club and the Nelson Bay Community Club have been battling out for the second half of the season to see who would finish in first but a 10pt win by the Tennis Club ensures they go into the finals series as hot favourites.

Neil Fatania showed the potential we always knew he had in winning the 2019 14 & Under Snooker Tournament on the weekend. Neil won all his matches with the scoreline at either 3-0 or 3-1 which was impressive considering it was a handicapped tournament. After Kahibah Sports Dave Foxley looked like he was going to finish Neil’s run in the final after winning the first frame convincingly but Neil then won the next 3 frames to take the title. Thanks to Wangi Workers Club for hosting the tournament and our sponsors – Winning Smiles
