The SICA September Golf Tournament was a hit!

SICA would like to give a special thank you to our tournament sponsors and players whose support was key in making this tournament a success! We greatly appreciate your help and generosity. The SICA Golf Tournament taking place at the Sunset Ranch and Country Club on Sept 16th was a sold-out event. We raised funds for the Howard Strong Scholarship and the Central Okanagan Food Bank. The day started with a little bit of adverse weather, but it took a turn for the best the sun came out of hiding and shone on all the golfers that day making it a warm fall day. This year we had 19 holes and was kicked off with golfers joining in a putting contest with Hilti.  Golfers enjoyed bagged lunches compliments of RJC Engineers and gathered for some camaraderie, while they waited for their chance to hit the links! SICA shared a hole with Builder’s Code and Employee Benefits Trust [EBT] this year, we were thankful to have the great company. BC Concrete sponsored two amazing “his and her” Golf Club packages for a couple of lucky winners. Plan B Contractors graciously supplied the Grand Prize which was 3 nights stay at St. Eugene Golf Resort with 3 rounds of golf at Mission Course, Wildstone Course, and Bootleg Course. Honestly, we were overwhelmed with the generosity of our sponsors and the great prizes here is a complete list:

SICA training courses prove practical and meaningful to students

It’s no exaggeration to say the global economy has been paralyzed by the pandemic. Fortunately for many Canadians, the construction industry was one of the few beacons in an otherwise slow economy greatly inhibited by COVID-19. Of course, the many forms of construction activity couldn’t forge ahead frivolously – social distancing, rigorous cleaning protocols and an abundance of caution were the norm on work sites everywhere, and it’s clear these methods will continue in the months ahead.
