You're encouraged to attend a "Lunch and Learn Technology Day" demonstration of some exciting equipment that may help you manage costs, and will provide valuable information to help you maintain your facility, club or course.  This event is meant to be a very casual way to view equipment up close and ask questions of the company representatives.

Our hosts will be Bob Dembek, Superintendent, Lexington Golf Club; MTD Products, GREENSIGHT Agronomics, HELENA Professionals and the representatives from these companies; and the Lexington Golf Club.

There is no cost for this event and it's a relaxed way to meet others who share an interest in learning while at the same time viewing some new technology.

Please stop in anytime from 10:00 AM to 1:30 PM for the demonstrations.  Enjoy a barbecue lunch anytime between 11:00 AM and 1:00 PM.

Feel free to bring along anyone who has influence over the decision making at your facility such as a green chairperson, board member, owner, or other influential person.

NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS - THE UMASS WINTER SCHOOL FOR TURF MANAGERS

The UMass Winter School for Turf Managers immerses students in a full-time program, focused solely on the management of fine turf and taught primarily by UMass faculty and staff.  Winter School is a comprehensive certificate program designed to furnish turf managers with the fundamental concepts essential to maintaining high quality turf, while instilling a sense of environmental stewardship and fiscal responsibility.

Winter School 2019 runs January 7 - February 15, 2019, at the UMass campus in Amherst, in a recently revised, time-efficient six week format. Classes are scheduled: Mon-Th 8 AM - 5 PM, and Fri 8 AM - noon. This schedule is designed to accommodate weekend commuters who may want to stay in the Amherst area Mon-Thurs evenings but head home on the weekends. Some area hotels offer special packages for UMass Winter School students.

The international student application deadline is September 14, 2018.  Application review for US students will begin in early September, with a deadline of October 31, 2018 (late applications may be accepted pending availability of seats).  Space is limited.
