Trevor Mortimer (TD), supported by Graham Baker and Pete Williams
The Queensland Referees who officiated on all but 3 of the matches, a job well done.
Our Interstate Players and supporters, trust you enjoyed your experience with us.
The members of the Redcliffe Club for vacating their tables so we could have this tournament.
Our (8) interstate visitors spoke volumes of the tournament especially the presence, standard and professionalism of the referees who officiated.
This was Queensland’s first Open Billiards Tournament with World Ranking Points and we look forward to it being an annual event. Billiards players across Australia have the Billiards Australia group to thank for this, they are working hard to build the games profile in Australia to compliment other such tournaments world wide, well done Jason Colebrook and his team.
