There will be a turf club meeting this evening at 6:30 in room 118 Hort. Tonight will be an important meeting to attend. We will be taking nominations for next years club officers. I would like for everyone to be attendance.

Also, I need to get all of the names of individuals who are going to attend the GCSAA conference. I will be discussing the travel arrangements and other critical items at tonight's meeting.

If you are not able to attend tonight and are planning on going to the GCSAA conference, let me know so I can add you to the list.

Final Reiman Gardens Application

Just as a reminder, today is the last Reiman Gardens application of the season. We will be putting down a herbicide and need as many certified applicators as possible. If you are not certified, there are still other things that can be done. We will be meeting at Reiman at 4:00 this afternoon.

Minutes 10/23/2012

First off, turf club apparel is finally here and can be picked up in my office (Room 54, across for the head house). Please have a check or exact cash. I won't have any change.

Second, as I stated at last weeks meeting, we will be applying herbicide at Reiman Gardens this Thursday afternoon at 4:00pm. We need as many certified applicators as possible. If you are not certified and would like extra hours, we will have other things that need to be done besides spraying.

Now that most people have scheduled their classes for next semester, please come sign up for volunteering at the ITI Conference. I have the sheets down in my office. This is a great way to network with professionals from within the industry.

The ITI is currently in the process of relocating their office from Ames to Ankeny. I met with Jeff Wendel today and he is looking for help moving out of their Ames office this Thursday morning. The moving truck will arrive at 9:00 in the morning. Anyone who helps out will receive entry to the conference. I will be there and it would be great for the turf club to help out.
