North West snooker to focus on event sponsorship

SPONSORSHIP for tournaments will be the key focus that the North West Billiards and Snooker Association will concentrate on in the 2014/2015 season.

The association held its annual general meeting at the Lautoka Club on Saturday where it was revealed that lack of sponsorship prevented them from hosting tournaments last season.

The financial report was passed at the meeting with the association making a profit of $879.

Suresh Chauhan retained his position as president for another year after being unopposed during the elections.

Chauhan said the committee members had been urged to look for sponsorship.

"It was a fruitful meeting after the initial meeting was called off because of lack of quorum," he said.

"Sponsorship is one area that we will have to work on. Without sponsorship it is hard to hold tournaments and run the association.

"Last year we managed to get some sponsorship. This time the committee members have been urged to secure more sponsors. We made a profit of about $800 which is not much but we are a small organisation."

The association will start its competition schedule with the Six Reds League final this Saturday.

The top six players from each affiliated club are eligible to enter and will be drawn up in pools.

Chauhan said they would do some development work provided that funds are available.

The affiliation fee for the clubs has been increased from $30 to $50.

2014/2015 office bearers: President: Suresh Chauhan; Vice presidents: Raymond Reddy, Mahen Deo; Secretary/Treasurer: Philip Gock; Committee members: Rimal Narayan, Vinesh Prasad, Simon Reddy, Navneil Maharaj, Raj Mani Pillay.
