Held at the Parmelia Hilton in Perth, the lunch was attended to the capacity of the registration, a sign of the ongoing support that APIA is receiving from members and guests alike.
Following a brief welcome by WA Chapter Chair Jodi Gratton and both sponsors, winners from the February WA Chapter golf afternoon were announced. The golf afternoon was well attended on a slightly windy day. Winners from the golf day included Paul Fortune for the longest drive, sponsored by Enerflex Process; and Sarah-Jean Fraser for nearest to the pin, sponsored by Denso.
The overall golf day winners award, sponsored by OSD Pipelines, was taken out by a WorleyParsons team of John Burwash, Peter Dowse, Frank Stapleton and Rusdey Salleh.
A team of Paul Fortune, Stuart McLennan, Spencer McSween and Quentin Stewart won the runner-up team award, sponsored by KT Pipelines.
The “not a golfer’s armpit” award, sponsored by Pipeline Integrity, was taken home by the OSD team of Tony Guard, Rick Joubert, Ron Hodgens and Michelle Delebet.
The WA Chapter wishes to thank all sponsors and players for a great afternoon.
After lunch, Chief Executive Officer of WestNet Infrastructure Group John Cleland spoke about “˜External asset management, a subjective assessment’ providing an insightful presentation.
The WA Chapter Committee is now busy planning and looking forward to the WA Seminar and Dinner Dance to be held on Friday 26 June and looking forward to continued support and attendance at the APIA functions.
