As Saskatchewan has gradually eased its way toward the end of the pandemic through the steady delivery of vaccinations, I have been eagerly waiting for the time to arrive when our members can gather once again.

That time is nearly here. As of July 11, all public health orders in the province have been removed and that lifts the limits on events and gathering sizes. 

We have been seeing concerts announced and Roughrider games scheduled. Families are meeting and celebrating after their long absences from one another. Friends are spending time together catching up and enjoying on another’s company. Seeing people come together reminds us of the value of connection to make each of us better than we are on our own. We are stronger together. 

That’s what makes the return of the SHCA golf tournament so exciting. This year’s tournament is scheduled for Thursday, Aug. 19 at the Wascana Country Club in Regina. 

We hope to see many SHCA members, sponsors and supporting companies come together after having to be apart for so long.

Start the day together with lunch at noon before the shotgun start to the tournament at 1 p.m. Following your round of golf, it’s your chance to spend time reconnecting with your network during the banquet.

As a member-driven organization, I know how important it is for all of you in heavy construction to have opportunities to meet and share with one another. That networking is how I learn how to best represent, advocate and serve all of the members that make up our organization so that the issues that matter most get the attention they deserve. Making those connections over a round of golf and a meal makes the day just that much more memorable. 

Watch for an email from our office with the registration form, which will include the cost of participating in this year’s tournament. Fill out the form and submit it as well as your registration fee to Tracey or Ellie to participate. 

Also, watch the SHCA website for the events page to be updated with details about upcoming events, including our convention. We look forward to offering you more opportunities through the rest of 2021 to build your connections.
