Good Morning Everyone,

I met with the Derek Harmon Scholarship Committee last night and have some important dates for you to put in your calenders. The golf event will be held on Saturday, April 26. Registration will begin at 11:00 am with a 12:00 noon shotgun start. The turf club will be responsible for the bag drop. This means that everyone participating in the event should arrive early to help out.

The scholarship applications will be posted around the time everyone returns from Christmas break. I will send out an email once they are posted. Applications will be due on Thursday, April 10I need to ask where they need to be turned in at. The scholarship recipients will be announced after the golf event during the awards ceremony.

The scholarship is only for undergraduate students that are attending ISU and are enrolled in the turfgrass program. After speaking with the committee last night, everyone in the program is encouraged to apply. For some of you who feel your GPA is not as high as other students, do not keep this from preventing you from applying. The GPA section does not weigh very much. They are looking for students who are dedicated to Iowa State and the Turfgrass Program.

I will discuss the event in further detail at future turf club meetings. For now, I just wanted everyone to know the dates and times. If any of you have any questions and/or comments about the outing, feel free to contact me at anytime.

Minutes for October 29, 2013 Meeting

Turf Club Minutes

Scholarship Applications
  • Thursday, today is the last possible day to get your ITI, IGCSA, and ISTMA scholarship applications in. This does not take long to do and there is quite a bit of money in these scholarships and if you aren’t a senior it would be wise to fill them out. Turn your applications in to Nick or Dan at some point today.
  • For those of you attending the STMA trip you need to get your $150 deposit for the trip to Spencer as soon as possible. This deposit is just to secure your spot and if enough funding is raised you will receive the deposit back. Go to the turf club events to receive funding!
Reiman Gardens
  • The last Reiman app will be tomorrow at 3:00 pm. We will be doing a broadcast application as well as a sprayer app. If you have you Chemical applicators license please attend.
  • If you can’t come at three we need people to help get everything loaded and brought over to Reiman earlier in the day, so the ability to pick up hours is still there.
United Way Auction
  • We have chosen November 2nd as the day to fulfill the 10 hours of yard work. This means if we get ten people there we will only be there for 1 hour. Look for info to come soon about the meeting place and time. These hours will also be added to the trips if you attend.
  • Turf club apparel order forms have been sent. Clothes should be here somewhat soon
