The ATS NSW Committee are saddened to report that our colleague Peter Watson passed away earlier this year after a battle with illness. Many of our ATS community will have met Peter through our various ATS event such as the bi-monthly technical sessions, the triennial conference or indeed the annual NSW ATS Charity Golf Day. Others will have met Peter through his work in recent years with Promat where his expertise was appreciated across the industry.
As many of you will know, Peter was a stalwart of the ATS NSW Charity Golf Day and had been the driving force behind it’s success in recent years. The photo above shows Peter donating the proceeds of the 2016 event to the Garvan Institute for Cancer Research. The ATS NSW Committee appreciated Peter’s efforts in bringing the industry together for such a good cause.
In memory of Peter, the 2018 NSW Golf Day committee has decided that golfers at this year’s event will compete for the Peter Watson Cup. We look forward to this opportunity to remember Peter and hope to see many of you there where we will be joined by Peter’s family, friends and industry colleagues.
