# STA Vic Update: July 2015

There have been plenty of changes in the STA Victoria office recently.

First of all we have new contact details.
STA Victoria can now be reached at 0439 089 005.
We also have a new postal address: PO Box 1100 Sandringham, Vic 3191.

Change is always a good thing, and in order for STA Victoria to keep up with the times and better utilise the association’s finances, it was time to make some transitions.

STA Vic representative graduate Jono Perez from AAMI Park presented his presentation for Graduate of the Year at the Hunter Valley during this year’s Australian Turfgrass Conference but unfortunately he was not the recipient of the Award, it went to Grant Woolley, City of Launceston, Tasmania.

Organisers advised it was a close call with little difference between presentations. Apprentices in Victoria get your thinking caps on for the 2016 Graduate of the Year Award, there is a great prize for the winner.

In other news, the STA Victoria’s major trade conference; the 2015 Sportsfield & Wicket Seminar is fast approaching. Due to last year’s success, the 2015 conference will again be held at the fantastic AAMI Park on Wednesday, July 22.

This year’s seminar, sponsored by Globe Growing Solutions will include talks from industry professionals such as the City of Casey’s grounds Co-ordinator Mr Toby Lumsden, Head Groundsman for Melbourne Grammar School Mr John Shannon and the enduring AFL hero, the celebrated Mr Kevin Sheedy.

Spots for the 2015 Sportsfield & Wicket Seminar are filling up fast as there will be no ticket sales at the door. For more information, head to http://vicsportsturf.asn.au/news-events/ or email STA Victoria :- vic@sportsturf.asn.au
