It is with a truly heavy heart I have to let you know that I received a message from gillian giving me the terrible news that sadly Chris Cass passed away this afternoon. Chris was not only a very close friend of over 40 years but he was also the driving force for the Suffolk Bar Billiards Association and without his dedication there would be no 4 pin open every year or indeed the 4x4 tournament which was all his brain child. The SBBA had aleady taken the decision to rename the 4x4 "The Chris Cass four by four" in honour of all his efforts. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Gillian at this time and we will be offering every support we can. Please feel free to post your messages below and I promise I will make sure Gillian has the chance to read each and every one them
Inventor of the Triangles version of Bar Billiards. Highest England away aggregate 2013 and 2014, 10 - 0 last 10 England singles legs, seventh reserve 2015. Jersey Qtr final 2014, 2015, 2016 - Guernsey Plate Winner 2014, Main Final 2015, 2017. First person to have won both AEBBA and E.A.four pin opens.
Chris was a lovely bloke and a prime mover when the EA Open moved to Suffolk. He also produced the peerless program that was a USP of the 4 pin Open. His quiet manner, his friendliness and his willingness to help were obvious to all and he will be sadly missed by all, I'm sure.
My condolences to Gillian and his friends and family for the loss of this lovely chap.
Rest in Peace Chris.
