On behalf of the METGCSA, the board met this past week and would like to let all those that participated in this year’s event that the funds raised this year will go to support the families of Rick Nack, most recently with Valley Green and Dave Heroian who was the superintendent of Myopia Hunt Club. Rick has served in every capacity imaginable in our industry, from golf course superintendent to sales representative and was well liked by all that met him. Rick is survived by his wife Cindy and son Mason. Rick was 57 years old. Dave was the superintendent at Myopia Hunt Club for the past 27 years, starting in 1987 and was universally admired and respected by members and employees alike. Dave is survived by his wife Gail of 22 years and their two sons, Adam and Alexander. Dave was 56 years old. Sadly, both Dave and Rick lost battles to cancer this fall at young ages.
Outgoing METGCSA president Blake Halderman and incoming president Glen Dube, along with the entire golf industry community would like to express our condolences to Rick’s and Dave’s families. The METGCSA will be sending their families checks in the amount of $1,100 each, which was raised from this year’s MET Team Championship at Philadelphia CC. We would like to thank all those that donated, sponsored and continue to support those in our close knit industry.
