Message from event organisers Colin and James Baylis
A big thank you to all of the 48 runners that turned up at
Rayleigh Lanes Snooker Club to enter the first annual
Vic Harris Memorial competition. It was a very long day for
both of us but it was well worth it and we are sure Vic Harris
will have been happy to see so many players turn up.
We would also like to thank the Rayleigh Lanes Snooker Club
providing and preparing the tables free of charge.
Special thank yous to Jason, who worked hard to make
sure the club was ready
to hold this special competition, and to competition
referee Sarah Horton.
What a semi-final and final we had.
The first sem-final was between James Baylis and Zak
Unfortunately for James Zak had got into his stride and with
of 60 and 96 to come out 3-0 winner.
The second between Dean Galbally and Darren Baines with
Dean winning out 3-1
The final between Dean and Zak was truly like watching
standard of play between them, as expected, was that high.
The form Zak was in it seemed likely there would only be one
Dean had other ideas and stepped up his game with
fantastic display of
snooker to come out the 3-2 winner.
All of the trophies were silver plated and provided by CSF
Building contractors Limited, the main sponsor of this event.
A company owned by Colin & James Baylis. The main trophy with
winners names engraved, will be held / displayed at
Rayleigh Lanes Snooker club. A small replica trophy will be
kept by the winner.
Listening to the comments of a lot of players it seemed very
clear nearly all
enjoyed the competition. Thank you all for attending this
first annual competition
held in memory of our great friend Vic Harris.
We look forward to Dean trying to retain this special
trophy next year, so please
all lets see if we can put a stop to that, and attend in
greater numbers next year.
Many thanks to you all, Colin & James.
