Pine­grove award

Field and Game - - FGA BRANCH NEWS -

Pine­grove Gun Club’s Steve Koch was named the Sports Fo­cus Sports Ad­min­is­tra­tor of the Year at a cer­e­mony held in Bendigo.

The evening saw six wor­thy fi­nal­ists recog­nised for their achieve­ments and vol­un­tary con­tri­bu­tions to the sport and ac­tive recre­ation sec­tor.

As a found­ing mem­ber of the Pine­grove Gun Club, Steve has been a ‘ma­jor player’ in chang­ing the lo­cal Recre­ation Re­serve from a rarely used, run­down fa­cil­ity, to the vi­brant place it is to­day with fan­tas­tic fa­cil­i­ties and the abil­ity to host ma­jor events. Steve’s de­ter­mi­na­tion, fo­cus and diplo­matic ap­proach re­sulted in the club host­ing the 2015 and 2016 Field & Game Aus­tralia Na­tional Car­ni­val.

Steve ser­vices and main­tains all of the club’s equip­ment and fa­cil­i­ties, ded­i­cat­ing most of his spare time to work­ing around the club, solv­ing is­sues and ‘get­ting things done.’ He has been de­scribed as a hum­ble man, with a ‘can do’ at­ti­tude, whose diplo­macy, lead­er­ship skills and at­ten­tion to de­tail en­sure a har­mo­nious and pro­duc­tive fu­ture for his club.

The award is well-de­served, and it’s great to see recog­ni­tion of Steve’s hard work, mo­ti­va­tion, and com­mit­ment to the club. Thank you to all those who sup­ported Steve’s nom­i­na­tion.
