Last week saw a welcome resumption of the Visual Connections Golf Days in NSW, with the event just missing the Noachian downpours that followed - just a sprinkling of showers that failed to dampen the enthusiasm. The Pozitive team emerged as overall winners, with the Roland DG four as runners up.

As well as Platinum Sponsors Visual Connections, Currie Group and Expo Net provided Gold Sponsorship for the day, which teed off at the civilized hour of 10.30am on Tuesday 23 November. A total of 76 players took to the course for an Ambrose-style competition which prioritises fun and friendly competition.

Despite changeable weather, which tested skills in both sunshine and rain, the team from Pozitive comprising Alfred David, Michael Farnham and Shaun Weir – came out winners on the day, with Con Chronopolous, John Wall, Ian Stone and Peter Townsend representing Roland DG runners-up. A drinks cart sponsored by Ecolease provided ready refreshments, while three prizes for novelty holes were provided by expo partners Get Rigged and the Sydney Showgrounds, as well as Labels Plus Magazine.

At the '19th hole', players enjoyed networking drinks as a prelude to the Visual Connections AGM where they were joined by more than 20 additional patrons who stayed on to enjoy an American BBQ Buffet dinner.

Visual Connections' CEO Peter Harper said after the event: “Visual Connections has always had a strong focus on forging connections and relationships across the industry through networking, expos and other events.” It was great to see such a large group gathered together and we look forward to getting back to our regular program and providing many opportunities for connections in 2022, including more days like today, industry awards, Print2Parliament and of course PacPrint in Melbourne at the end of June.”
