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.
The first TT qualifying and elimination finals were completed last night

Due to the haphazard use of the Foul and a Miss rule during the 22 rounds of the competition , the NDBSA committee has decided on a definitive method of application of the rule for the finals
At the toss of the coin for each pairing , the marker shall ask the two players if they wish the Foul and a Miss Rule to apply in their match.
If either or both players say YES , the Foul and a Miss Rule SHALL apply to their match .
If both players say NO than the Foul and a Miss Rule will not apply to their match
The Marker’s ruling on whether a fair attempt has been made is final
Good luck in the Finals
