WCTA Silent Auction – One Item Still Available

With nearly $25,000 in contributions, our 22nd Annual Silent Auction held during the 59th WCTA Annual Conference and Trade Show at the River Rock Casino Resort, made a strong comeback in 2023 raising $8,049 for turf research projects!

“It’s the most money raised in a decade and we need to thank our donors’ generosity” reported WCTA Research Chair, Peter Sorokovsky, adding, “and of course congratulations and a note of thanks is in order to all the bid winners for their tremendous support of turf research!”

One interesting item remains, four hours of executive coaching, donated by Mike Whalen of MW Executive Coaching.  After contacting Mike, former Allied Golf Association of BC Director with 35 years in the private club industry, we are pleased to offer this item without restriction (means you don’t need to be a WCTA member to bid) to the highest offer over $350.

Email WCTA Executive Director, Jerry Rousseau, your bid by Friday, May 12th.

In another twist, Bob Kains from Robert Kains Golf Course Design donated $500 cash in lieu of his usual donated item, a one day architectural consultation with written report summarizing observations and discussion.  That's gotta be worth a phone call to Bob if you're looking to make some changes on your course😀.  

At any rate, we’ll announce the bid winner in a subsequent e-newsletter.  Thanks for supporting the turf research that supports our industry!
