CGSA Show in Toronto, Canada a Success

CGSA Show in Toronto, Canada a Success

As the start of show season kicks off for me I start the season off in Toronto, Canada at the Canadian Golf Course Management Conference (CGCMC). I would have to say that despite the cold weather I experience every year they continue to gain a lot of technician attendance from the seminars. What’s equally impressive is the interaction the techs have with each other and the speakers.

This year I put on 3 seminars and a tech talk Shop Organization, Tournament Preparation from an Equipment Managers Point of View , and Tech Skills with John Cunningham from Bellerive Country Club. This years 15 min tech talk was on Height of Cut and the importance of setting it properly.

I also had the opportunity to catch up with quite a few industry colleagues as well as meet some new ones. I think one of the highlights was the dinners I shared with the Canadian Tech of the Year Yvon Jeaurond of Victoria Golf Club, Wade Borthwick of Uplands Golf Club, Thomas Bastis Superintendent at California Golf Club, Jamie Robb of Capilano Golf Club, Adam Zubek Superintendent at Mississaugua Golf and Country Club, and John Cunningham from Bellerive. Some bright minds at those dinners!

As always it was a great trip and I am certainly looking forward to more in the future. Great job to Ken, Kathryn and their team.
