Mike Smith, CEO was present along with his Executive management team and gave an impressive speech on the progress of ANZ this year.

Traralgon Golf day 2010

There were blue skies over Traralgon on Wednesday and again on Friday. Unfortunately for us our golf day was on Thursday which dawned with grey sky and persistent rain. A little bit of bad weather wasn't going to stop 35 intrepid golfers from a long anticipated day of golf to determine the  10th anniversary winner of the Jim Coffey trophy. The scores were always likely to be on the low side due to the conditions but John Winders won the competition with a score of 38 points off a handicap of 19 having finished in runner-up position last year.  John Inglis , a previous winner in 2007 playing off 18 was runner-up with 36 points. Kathy Shady won the Ladies competition with 32 points with Lesley Cooke as runner-up. Kathy Trace outdid everyone with a hole in one on the 15th. The winners were presented with their prizes by Pasqualina Coffey.

A tremendous day again well organised by John Brown and Dave and Wendy Woods. An excellent roast dinner afterwards prepared by Margo and her team complemented by some good red wine left everyone in a happy frame of mind for the journey back to Melbourne on Friday morning.

It was announced that the next Golf day would be held at Spring Valley in early May courtesy of the President of SV, Bill Robinson.
