EASB Referees Seminar : Sunday 4 October 2015

Apologies for the short notice but if anyone is interested in becoming a Class 3 EASB Referee, there is a course being held this coming Sunday, please see details below. If you are interested in attending, please let either Glen Sullivan-Bissett [gs-b@hotmail.co.uk][ or Dan Lewis [dmkl@hotmail.co.uk] know asap.

As you now know, there will be a referee’s seminar in Basildon at the Basildon Snooker Club on Sunday October 4th.
This is your opportunity to qualify as snooker referee (class 3) with the EASB.

Dependent on candidate numbers, we are unlikely to carry out all personal examinations on the day, but will certainly complete exams for those travelling the furthest and I will arrange any remaining exams within a quick time period following the day.

The venue is:
The Basildon Snooker Centre
High Pavement
Town Square
Essex SS14 1EA

The event is scheduled to begin at 11.00am prompt and will be facilitated by Dan Lewis and myself.

Please confirm by return your intention to attend so that I am clear on numbers

I wish you all success and enjoyment on your refereeing journey

Glen Sullivan-Bissett
