UN-SUNG HEROES -----GIVE THEM A BREAK
Nominated by you, as a practising member of either profession, the lucky winners (one greenkeeper and one groundsman) will receive the hire of a village house in the South of France for the week of their choice, plus £150 towards travelling expenses.
Judged by a panel of three, Derek Walder (I.O.G.), Gordon Child (B.I.G.G.A.) and Tim Lodge (STRI), the winners will be announced at BTME 2004, in time for them to prepare for their unexpected holiday.
The judges will not necessarily be looking for outstanding turf care skills (there are awards for these already), but individuals who have shown outstanding dedication either to their jobs or the welfare of their colleagues, and whose contribution has made a significant difference to the quality of working life, at their particular work place.
You know these un-sung heroes. Look out for the application forms in the September issue of Turf Professional, the Pitchcare website from 8th. September, the Terrain Aeration stand at Saltex (F 33), and give one of them a break.
