Our annual BBQ breakfast at South Metropolitan TAFE (new name for Challenger Institute of Technology) was held on Wednesday morning 15th March.
This social meet was an ideal opportunity for members of all turf sectors (Golf, Parks & Gardens & Sports turf), and our trade colleagues to come together where many of our careers began and enjoy a hearty BBQ. While there and renewing old friendships it was a time to catch up with the turf lecturers and chat with some of the students on how things were going.

Following on from the success of last year’s Cricket Wicket seminar, the Sports Turf Association (WA) was very proud to present the Cricket Wicket & Sports Field Renovation Workshop, held once again at the Murdoch University Sports Ground on Wednesday 29th March 2017.
This workshop aimed to give delegates hands-on practical experience will aspects of cricket wicket renovation under the tutelage of some of our well respected and experienced local wicket curators. During the day, delegates also received instruction from sponsors MowMaster on cylinder mower maintenance and State Wide Turf Services presented on and demonstrate sports field renovation.
Please note that thanks to sponsors Nuturf, who had been able to secure a special visit from Matthew Holmes and Daniel Docherty from Syngenta, who flew in from the east coast to present on Fungicide Resistance Management.
