Note to BC Sports Field Training Day Delegates
Thanks for participating in our upcoming training day, taking place Wednesday, Oct 2nd at South Surrey Athletic Park. Registration has been brisk and it looks like about 150+ sports turf managers and industry suppliers will be taking over SoftBall City for the day!
BTW, thank you City of Surrey for hosting and all our exhibitors, sponsors and speakers! If you have not yet signed up there is still time.
The forecast is looking pretty good but we plan to go rain or shine so prepare accordingly. Here are a few quick notes:
• park in the lot north of Softball City
• registration opens at 7:30am in the Softball City Clubhouse
• morning program starts at 8:30am sharp!
• there are so many delegates that we need to split into two groups after the opening remarks in the Clubhouse
• BC M.O.E. has awarded 0.75 IPM points for the presentation titled, ‘Biotechnology Solutions to Reduce Reliance on Traditional Fertilizers and Pesticides’ by Dale Overton of Overton Environmental Enterprises. Don’t forget to sign the sheets.
