STA (Vic)/IAL Joint Event

This article was updated on March 16 2020.

After careful consideration by the organising committee, we have decided to postpone our planned Field Day that was to be held on Wednesday 25th March at Princes Park in Glen Eira.

This decision has been taken in the best interest of all participants, in light of the fairly rapid change in advice from the National Chief Medical Officer, where it is now deemed unwise to be holding community events of the type that we had proposed.  Our organising committee are still keen to run this event in the future, and we will do so when we are advised that it is safe.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our members, sponsors and presenters who are totally committed to this event, and we look forward to being back in touch with you in the near future.

Sports Turf Assoc. (Vic), along with IAL Melbourne Region, invite you to a very special Field Day.
