Assistants Training Day at WCCC

Today we hosted an Assistant Superintendent Training Day at Walnut Creek which was sponsored by Syngenta.  Assistants from many clubs in the area attended to take part in two training opportunities.  First, Aaron Hathaway from Michigan State University spoke about proper calibration techniques for chemical spraying equipment and its importance.  Calibrating spraying equipment to ensure the correct rate of pesticide is being applied is not only the right thing to do but it can save a lot of money by not over applying a product!  Following this, John Schlegel and his coworker Jason from ProPump & Controls spoke to everyone about proper irrigation pump station winterizing and maintenance.  Winterizing a pump station correctly at the end of the season is crucial as some repairs due to frozen equipment could not only be very costly but could also set back the irrigation start date in the spring.

On Monday, October 28th, Walnut Creek Country Club with support from the MiGCSA will be hosting an event with Assistant Superintendents from surrounding clubs in our area to participate in a training day.  Topics that will be covered are how to properly calibrate chemical spraying equipment for precise applications as well as irrigation pump house winterizing and maintenance.  We're excited about hosting this event and believe it will provide a great learning opportunity for all those involved!
