Supaturf Cape Town staged another successful training day in February. It was a stifling hot day which began with us setting up the displays at the Edgemead Sports Club. Kevin Gramoney had been very pro-active and took the trouble to print a program of events for the day, which he sent with invitations to prospective clients. This obviously had a positive effect – we were led to believe that there would be about 50 people attending but we were proven wrong and caught off guard with the number of attendees exceeding 100 people from various schools in the Peninsula, the City of Cape Town Municipality and representatives from as far afield as Malmesbury.
The day began with a brief overview of Supaturf and its presence in South Africa. Special emphasis was laid on the role Supaturf plays in protecting the environment, which has resulted in Supaturf being granted the IS0 14001 Award. The impact line marking has on the Turf Industry was discussed in depth and attendees were reassured that the wealth of turf experience amongst Supaturf South Africa’s senior representatives places us in a unique position in the Line Marking Industry.
The programme then moved on to the mixing of Line Marking Liquids and the distinction between Spray Marking Machines and Transfer Wheel Markers. The programme continued with a crash course in setting out and marking of various sports disciplines with special emphasis on Soccer, Rugby and Athletics.
After lunch a talk and demonstration on cleaning, servicing and basic maintenance of Line Marking machines was given. This evoked much discussion and questions and it was most gratifying when at the end of the day’s program several people spoke up and thanked Supaturf for a most informative and productive day.
