The South African Institute of Mechanical Engineers (SAIMechE) Mpumalanga Highveld branch held its annual golf day on 25 October. Top tier professionals who are captains in their respective companies let their hair down by hitting the greens for a fun-filled round of golf. The event, with 18 teams in participation, was the biggest to date with Novus Sealing taking top honours being crowned the 2019 champions.
The SAIMechE Golf Day is an annual event on the SAIMechE calendar. Through the event, professionals in engineering are invited to participate with the intention to socialise and network amongst their peers. This provides a great platform for Mpumalanga’s great minds to share ideas on the current state of the industry and also conceptualise initiatives meant to uplift and drive engineering going forward. Apart from the golf day, SAIMechE also hosts monthly evening papers hosted by industry experts and community outreach programmes such as its World of Engineering Exhibitions.
The Chairman of SAIMechE Mpumalanga Highveld Branch (MHB), Mishael Mashele said: “SAIMechE Golf 2019 day was a resounding success!” He proceed to extended his gratitude: “Thanks in part to the great number of sponsors. This year’s event also saw a record number of both sponsors and participants. PDPS represented by its Director, Hannes Degenaar, MegChem represented by its Director, Andre Roos and PPS for Professionals and CCI Engineering & Projects represented by its Director, Clifford Masus, each sponsored one of the four main holes and received Certificates of Sponsorships. The remaining holes were sponsored by Novus Sealing, Progo, SGB Cape, AZ-Armaturen and New Nation. At their information stalls the participants had the opportunity to learn more about the companies and the services they have to offer.”
“On behalf of SAIMechE’s MHB committee, I would also like to thank all engineers that took time out of their busy schedules to honour the invite. A total of 18 teams from the afore-mentioned companies including Sasol, Eskom and SGB Cape braced the windy greens for top honours.
Par-Tee-On from PDPS came in at 3rd place, The Wackos from SGB clinched 2nd position and Green Reapers from Novus Sealing took top honours claiming bragging rights as SAIMechE 2019 Golf Day Champions. Congratulations are definitely in order!”
Off the golf course, SAIMechE MBH has a series of events lined up. Daniel S. Janikowski, Technical Manager at the West Monroe, Louisiana plant of Plymouth Tube Co. will give a presentation on Tube Degradation on Thursday, 14 November. This will be followed by an industry visit to Simba Isando Plant early next year. As with any great organisation: “I would like to encourage active participation from all of SAIMechE members and also extend an invitation to all Mechanical engineers, technicians and technologists in the Mpumalanga region.”
