MPSTMA GROUND LEVEL NEWS - APRIL 2019 Print

President's Report

As the last snow banks melt, we can begin to embrace the upcoming spring and summer days that help us persevere our wonderful Minnesota winters. The MPSTMA has a number of events you may want to make plans to attend. More information and registration is available at www.mpstma.org.

JUNE

The Annual MPSTMA?Tour-on-Wheels will make stops at Allianz Field, UM?Athletes Village and TCF?Bank Stadium. MPSTMA members will travel by rail between Minneapolis and St. Paul. The day is still being determined but will be in Mid-June.

JULY

The MPSTMA will meet with the Wisconsin Chapter of STMA in LaCrosse, WI for the Chapter Clash.?Iowa will not be participating this year. If you are interested in playing in the 2-man scramble event, contact Mike McDonald CSFM at [email protected]

JULY 24

MPSTMA?Demo Day is set for Wed., July 24 at the National Sports Center. A day for MPSTMA?Commercial Members to bring equipment for General Members to Demo. Both natural and synthetic turf are available at the NSC.

SEPTEMBER 27-28

One of the more rewarding uses of your time might be to join other
MPSTMA members at the Special Olympics in Woodbury on August 17 and/or 18. The goal is to keep the playing surfaces for the athletes in top notch shape for every game. Make this the year you help our City of Woodbury friends maintain a first-class event.

SEPTEMBER / OCTOBER

The MPSTMA?Community Service Project is in limbo. The Board is leaning towards dedicating an annual request for volunteer time from its members to the Special Olympics in Woodbury.
Otherwise, or maybe both, the MPSTMA will select a field from applicants and provide the labor for the renovation project. Some materials will be donated or provided at a reduced cost. Volunteers are needed! The Community Service Project is a great way to learn by being hands-on helping renovate a field with some of the most established turf managers in Minnesota.

NOVEMBER 13

The MPSTMA Fall Workshop is a day of education, networking and quality speakers. This year’s workshop Agenda is being finalized and a site is still being determined.
