Salient. Victoria University Student Newspaper. Volume 35 Number 6. April 11, 1972



This year the billiards club is fast taking on the appearance of a highly organised, highly successful sports club. Already, the club has organised four inter club fixtures between the Post Office, Working men's club. Police and Prison Wardens. These events promise interest and should help get the club "off the ground."

The most important event to date for this club, must be its coming Annual General Meeting to be held on Thursday, April 13 at 7.30 in the Union Lounge. Support is needed, so if you're in any way interested in supporting it, turn up and participate in the "piss-up" afterwards I

At present dub nights are held on Tuesday at 7.30 at the Regent Parlour in Manners St.

This was also the venue of the recent Easter Tournament. This year, like last year it was Victoria all the way. Otago had sent a strong team in an attempt to recapture a beautiful trophy lost last year to a magnificent Victoria side. However this beautiful trophy remains in the V.U.W. foyer display cabinet, despite Otago's desperate efforts.

The Vic team had a tremendous depth this year which is amazing when you consider that Victoria University is the only one in New Zealand without its own Billiard tables. (The dub hopes to do something about this but needs support - so go to the A.G.M.)

The depth of the teem was proven by the outcome, not only in the team results, (Vic 86. Otago 62. Canterbury 54) but also in the Individual event. 1st, 2nd and 3rd places were all Vic players. Bill Marshall was the outstanding player of the tournament. Ha won all his games and the Individual Trophy. Steve McKenzie was also outstanding, winning all his games and finishing 2nd in the Individual trophy. He was Vic's No. 4. player. Vic's no. 2. G. Keene finished 3rd in the individual and John Ingles Vic No. 3. wasn't far behind. Generally a great all-round effort.
