Preparing for the Golf Industry Show in San Diego

Well we are just a little over a week away now as I am preparing for the Golf Industry Show in San Diego. As I have just dove back into IGCEMA over the last month it doesn’t change all the preperation work to get ready. Over the last week I have been working on our booth signs shown below:

As many know we are showing our new RHOC height of cut gauge that will begin selling on the IGCEMA website during the show. We are anticipating a sell out of our first run of 40 which will be shipping following our arrival back from the show.

We are also giving away the Edwin Budding award to 2012 winner Dana Lonn of The Toro Company. This is always a huge highlight of our trip to the show. This award is given away at GIS and BTME in England as they alternate years with this year being GIS.

I will be also finalizing my presentation this week that Mike Kriz and I will be presenting on Monday. In the seminar we will be talking about Hiring an Equipment Manager. We will look at survey results and discuss the hardships and things to help both Superintendents and Equipment technicians find that right person or job.

We are also preparing for meetings that we will have all week with allied associations, manufacturers and colleagues all week. This is always an exciting time during the show  because we have the opportunity to discuss our ideas and plans for the future of the IGCEMA but also to understand the direction everyone else is going and how we can help.

Also GCSAA has graciously allowed us the opportunity to put our study guides on display and sale in the GCSAA bookstore for the second year. So if you have not seen our study guides or want to purchase some make sure you look for them on display at the show. There is a limited supply so get them while they last.

I am looking forward to seeing everyone there and if you get a chance please come by and see us at the IGCEMA booth and check out the new height of cut gauge and try it out for yourself. See you there.
