Our new Equipment Manager, Hector, recently made his first instructional video from Walnut Creek and it was posted today! Please click here to watch his video. This video is a pilot video as he made it in both English AND Spanish. With many more Hispanic technicians and equipment managers around the world, it’s increasingly important to share the videos in both languages. Each month a new video will be posted on turfnet.com filmed from our very own shop at Walnut Creek so be sure to take a look from time to time and see what’s happening. Some of the tips and tricks Hector shares could even be useful at home with your own maintenance needs. Enjoy the videos!

|GCSAA Conference 2013|
In addition to taking some great classes at the show, I also attended the Michigan Golf Course Superintendents Association (MiGCSA) gathering and was able to network with many of Michigan's finest Superintendents, Assistants, and Educators.
--Dan Meersman named Superintendent of the Year--On a side note, I would like to congratulate Dan Meersman, Director of Grounds at The Philadelphia Cricket Club, as this years recipient of the Superintendent of the Year award. This award is a great honor and one that is well deserved. After working for Dan and getting to know him well, it's great to see Dan's leadership, strong work ethic, and progressive thinking is continually recognized. Congratulations Dan!
