2021 An Active Year Ahead

Currently with the everchanging landscape, especially in Victoria, it is a little difficult to plan and book events going forward.  What appears a clear path today can be shattered tomorrow. With this fickleness of the Covid-19 pandemic we all deserve a pat on the back for our collective achievements during 2020 and early 2021.

However, the STA (Vic) Committee has decided it is time for positivity in events going forward for our members and is enthusiastic to confirm the following events are planned for 2021.

Save these dates.

  • Wednesday 21st April – Regional Seminar at Mars Stadium, Ballarat sponsored by Mentay
  • Wednesday 28th July – Sports Turf Seminar at the iconic nations home of sport, the MCG and sponsored by Bayer.
  • September – Pitch Preparation Day – date to be confirmed
  • Throw in the mix – a field day with Research results announced for the Transition Trial at Pakenham
  • Innovation & Technology Field Day – date & venue to be confirmed.

Sports Turf Graduate of the Year nominations have been called for from the RTOs.  Our Victorian winner will then participate in final judging for the Sports Turf Association Toro National Graduate of the Year being held on the Gold Coast, Sunday 20th June, 2021.  Thanks again to Toro for sponsoring this remarkable Award.

STA (Vic) will again sponsor a Graduate Diploma student.  2020 saw two worthy students gaining sponsorship from STA (Vic) to further their studies.  For more details contact STA (Vic).

Reminder: – new email for the Victorian office is vic@staaus.com.au and contact Jan 0439 089 005 for any queries

We would love to hear any stories from the field or workplace to share on our social media pages.

We are planning on a strong 2021 for all our members and a successful contribution back to the industry with your help!

STA (Vic)
