CFSTMA 6th Annual Field Day @ Disney’s ESPN Wide World of Sports

It was a beautiful spring day for more than 150 sports turf professional and commercial attendees at Central Florida Sports Turf Managers Association 6th Annual Field Day.

Before recapping the event, the Board wants to thank Tim Flowers, a CFSTMA member, the turf manager at Disney for hosting this event.  We can’t say enough how easy Tim and his Disney team were to work with.  They exceeded our expectation.  We held our CEU sessions inside the All Star Café.

The professionals had the opportunity to meet with the vendors prior to and just before lunch, with CEU sessions on water Quality and Foliar Absorption presented by Lynn Griffin, tropical plant and soil expert with a  session by Dr. Jason Kruse, Assistant Professor Turf Grass Specialist who discussed history of BMP’s (Best Management Practices) and the need to be aware of potential industry restrictions effecting turf grass managers.

Simultaneously,  Toro Company Bruce Funnell held a field demonstration trouble shooting, tracking wire with open conversation of Central Control Irrigation systems.

We ended the training session with a tour of Disney’s sports facilities after a lunch provided to the attendees by our sponsor, Ewing Irrigation & Landscape Supply.  Thanks to Ewing Irrigation & Landscape Supply for lunch.
