64 sign industry golf enthusiasts teed off at the Sandhurst Golf Club on the 7th of September at ASGA’s inaugural Victorian Golf Day. 15 also attended the pre-golf networking evening event at the Espy in St Kilda.
“Congratulations to the winning team from Hexis (John Papadopoulos, Ian Parsonson, Jamie Stone, Dean Stone) and runners-up team from the golf day’s principal sponsor, Spicers (Scott Houghton, Shane Britten, Matt Hogg, Graeme Lidgerwood),” said ASGA.
Thoren Hadley from Signmanager won a set of golf clubs donated by Sign Manufacturers Insurance Brokers (SMIB), for Nearest to the Pin on the Par 3, 16th hole.
Other winners included: Wes Chandler (Form A Sign), Mark Prosser (Kwik Kopy), Michael Pryor (Corex), Andrew Sear (SMIB) and Matt Newton (Ball & Doggett).
ASGA events manager Michael Punch said: “We’re a small team at ASGA but we’re making a real effort this year after a couple of years of COVID disruptions, to host events around the nation.
“There are many benefits for getting the industry together: there’s the fun and social aspect, and then there’s the sharing of knowledge and business challenges which can help with fostering a positive outlook.
“Hosting a golf day and networking evening in Victoria has been on our agenda for some time. We’re pleased with the turnout and positive feedback from attendees. All agreed the event should become a regular one on the industry calendar.
“We thank the sign companies who supported the event, many of whom brought along as guests some key clients. Thanks especially to the event sponsors: Spicers, Graphic Art Mart, SMIB, General Formulations, Amari Visual, Ball & Doggett, Bounce LED, Corex Graphics, Hexis, HVG, Mulford Australia, Signarama, SignManager and Visual Technologies.”
