Seasons Greetings from President and STA (Vic) Committee.

We have had a fabulous year in 2018.  Some well attended and well received events starting in April with OH&S at Junction Oval; return to the MCG in July for the Sports Turf Seminar; an informative and well run Pitch Preparation Day in September plus good news on the sports turf education front regarding the opportunities in education for the future.

Planning is well underway for our 2019 events –

  • 2ndApril, 2019 – OH&S & Wellbeing Seminar – GMHBA Stadium, Kardinia Park, Geelong.  We will bring you sessions covering councils, compliance, Work cover and workplace wellbeing.
  • 10thJuly, 2019 – AGM & Sports Turf Seminar at the MCG. Sessions will cover council challenges of managing sports grounds and wickets and the transition from cricket to football; diseases on grasses; and a Cricket Corner run by a panel of Curators and more.
  • September 2019 will see the return of the Cricket Pitch Preparation Day.
  • October, an Irrigation Seminar is planned.

 Please send inyour ideas/suggestions on any of the above to Jan – email: vic@sportsturf.asn.au


Early 2019 will see the release of the final report of the STA (Vic) funded project – Hours of Use for Different Sports Field Construction Types and Maintenance Inputs.

 If you would like tosee a particular study or project undertaken by STA (Vic) please email your suggestions to Jan.

Housekeeping Note:

 The AustralianTurfgrass is a fabulous industry magazine, however, like all mail distribution databases, it is difficult to keep up with address changes, people changing workplaces etc.  If you have changed your address or left the industry and no longer wish to receive the magazine please contact Jan and let her know so the magazine database can be kept current.

A huge thank you to the STA (Vic) Sponsors, we greatly appreciate your input.

Best wishes to you and your families for the festive season. The STA (Vic) Committee looks forward to bringing you some great events and information in 2019.
