President: Gavin Johnson
Results Tuesday 1st December: Winner Graham Collett and Haylee Wills both with 4 wins. Highest Break Don with 40. Raffles Joyce & DJ.
Elaine Shadbolt was made a Life Member of the Snooker Adjunct at the last AGM in March and was presented with a framed photograph last Tuesday. This is now hanging on the wall by the snooker honors board. Elaine started playing snooks here in 1976 when women were allowed to join the club. After a spell away from 1980 – 1990 Elaine and Athol joined again in 1990 and have participated ever since. After Athol passed Elaine became secretary/treasurer in 2009 remaining to until she had sight problems in 2020. Elaine did it all and was the go to person for the adjunct with organizing raffles ect.
She fronted and was a big reason for bringing the annual master’s tournament to Whangamata. Doing everything from organizing sponsorship, arranging accommodation, prizes, and licensing with N.Z master personal.
As well Elaine was to re-front in organizing two successful NZ Clubs over 60’s tournaments.
Well done Elaine, great to see you have been honored in this way. Great to see you in person at the club.
All the best.
