    Which was the normal weekend for the Ron Ashcroft Handicap Event ,

    But owing to the Major flood damage to the entire Lismore Workers Club , this event was cancelled this year , we do hold hope That the Lismore Workers can still have replacement snooker tables installed for next year

    A significant day today for the Club Banora based Twin Towns Snooker Club. First up, former president of more than three decades, Des Turner, was recognised in the Queen’s Birthday honours with the Order of Australia Medal for his multi-layered contribution to snooker and billiards in both NSW and Queensland. That honour is also appropriately recognised elsewhere on this form. The day also marked the successful conclusion of the Northern Rivers Handicap Open which was staged as a substitute for the Ron Ashcroft Memorial, normally held at Lismore Workers Club. Because that club was seriously damaged in recent floods, the team at Club Banora, under new president Peter Campbell, took up the challenge, secured sponsors and managed to attract a field of 40 starters in just a few weeks. Significantly one of the players was Jacinta McCabe, Ron Ashcroft’s grand-daughter.
    Adding to the true worth of Des’s award is the fact this this tournament could not have been staged at Club Banora, either, had it not been for his persistence and strong advocacy that saved the club from being consigned to history just a few years ago. A big thanks and congratulations to Des for all he has done for our sport. And yes, despite the honour and glory he was back there refereeing today’s final as he has done so often in the past. Results are on the club website.

    Congratulations Des – a well deserved award – from all at Redcliffe

    History in the making.
    My history research from 1788 til now shows that Des Turner (OAM) is only the third Queensland cueist to be honoured. Sir Albert Sakzewsi, Dr Clem Jones (AO) and Des Turner.
    Two very highly respected millionaire/philanthropists and a local “postie”.
    It really is a great effort, Des. OC
