ASGA hosts its inaugural Victorian golf day

Almost 70 sign industry golf enthusiasts teed off in a friendly game of golf at the Sandhurst Golf Club on 7 September at ASGA’s inaugural Victorian Golf Day.

ASGA also hosted a pre-golf networking evening event at the Espy on 6 September.

“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,” ASGA events manager Michael Punch said.

“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.”

The team from Hexis (John Papadopoulos, Ian Parsonson, Jamie Stone and Dean Stone) won the game of golf and the runners-up were the from Spicers (Scott Houghton, Shane Britten, Matt Hogg and Graeme Lidgerwood).

Thoren Hadley from Signmanager won a set of golf clubs generously 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 (KwikKopy), Michael Pryor (Corex), Andrew Sear (SMIB) and Matt Newton (Ball & Doggett).

ASGA will be hosting a golf day in Western Australia on 20 October, with more details to be revealed soon here.
