Trail, BC native, David Turik, has over 30 years experience in combining sports, music and technology commencing in the late 1980’s as a co-founder of NetComm Cellular, creators of Australia’s first cellular modems. Used by NetComm Racing to send engine analytics to the pit crew, by sportswriters filing stories direct from the grounds and live event reporting at music festivals, legendary musician Joe Walsh helped with the trials. Turik, along with Kitchener, Ontario native and referee, Rick Williams, trialed the initial miking of NHL Official’s through to more recently introducing the concept of the “NHL Situation Room” to the National Rugby League in Australia, which has subsequently become the “NRL Bunker.”
