November 2022

After one of the nicest falls for golf and putting our courses to bed for the winter, it looks like winter is here to stay.

Despite poor travelling conditions, it was great to see so many people at the Fall Wind Up. We had great feedback on the quality of te talks, and as per usual, the networking was excellent. It’s always great to catch up after a long season.

With rising costs, we had to increase the registration fee to $125, which I feel is still a bargain to be able to obtain 5 CEC’s towards renewing your pesticide license. Thanks go to Kim for putting together the Zoom opportunity at the last minute. We had 17 extra people take part via Zoom due to the poor weather conditions.

You were all forwarded a link to Joe Roberts 10 Day Challenge, it’s also available on the website. It’s a great tool, so please take advantage of it.

We are putting together an opportunity to buy some clothing with the new STA logo on it. STA hoodies and hats will be available to order. More details to follow soon.

I’m hoping everyone is relaxing somewhat after another long season and maybe taking a well-deserved vacation or 2.

If anyone sees an article that would suit our newsletter, please forward it to us and even better would be someone writing an article for the newsletter relating an experience or construction work on their course.

Keep an eye out for educational opportunities this winter. Our commercial members always host webinars worth CEC’s, so please plan to participate.

The CGSA Conference will take place in late February in Vancouver, so if you are able to attend it is well worth it, the educational program is always fantastic as well as the trade show and networking opportunities.

Have a great winter!
