CASF’s 4th Annual Golf Tournament – A Success!

By 9 November 2021January 25th, 2022News

The 4th Biennial CASF Golf Tournament held on Tuesday September 21st was truly a fantastic success. We’ve already received very positive feedback from many of you.

Initially the weather did not look promising, as it poured rain all morning, but the weather gods were with us and the rain stopped shortly before the shotgun start and although cloudy with some wind, all golfers remained dry throughout the tournament’s duration.

The CASF golf tournament wasn’t just about the golf this year; it was about presenting our Surface Finishing Industry Leadership award to its very deserving recipient, Richard Thibodeau. This was accomplished with a very emotional introduction by our President, Graham Douglas, who then handed the microphone to Mike Kuntz, who has worked closely with Richard over many years at CASF and in industry. Mike gave a sparkling synopsis of Richard’s career to this point. A well-deserved congratulations to Richard!

Please see some of this year’s event highlights below:
