Last year’s winning turf bowl team has been honored with a picture in the new Agriculture Display in the bottom floor of Curtis hall.  Stop by and see the display when you get a chance.  If you enter through the north door, it will be three quarters of the way down the main hall on your right.

Welcome Back Turf Club Members,

Welcome back to campus, it seems like it was a short summer. We have a number of activities in the next two weeks. The sports turf students are working today (Friday August 17) on fund raising projects for travel to the National Sports turf meeting in Daytona Beach Florida in January. If you are interested in working with them on their projects, contact Andrew Hoiberg at 303-905-8968 . He will let you know when they will be working again.

The entire turf club will be doing Reiman Garden fertilizing in the next two weeks. Watch for e-mails on the timing of that application. The first club meeting is August 29 at 6:00 in room 118 Horticulture.

We have a special speaker who was at Wimbledom this summer to help prepare for the tournament. He will talk about his experiences. I am looking for other speakers for the fall meetings. If you would like to talk about your experience this past summer, contact Dan Strey and get on the schedule.
There is a state sports turf meeting scheduled for August 28 at Davenport. We are taking a state van and plan to have the club pay the entry fee for students. Contact Dan Strey at to get on the list.
