President’s Newsletter – October 2012

October 1, 2012

ENCTA Members and Colleagues:

The Eastern NC Turfgrass Association has had several events over the past couple of months. Our first event was the Richard Williams Memorial Golf Tournament at Falling Creek Golf Course in Kinston on September 13, 2012. There was an awesome outpouring of support for this event that was organized to help support the family of Richard Williams, our President who passed away in July. A big thanks goes out to everyone who helped organize this event, those who donated items for the silent auction, those who sponsored the event, those who volunteered at the event, and those who participated in the event. Richard’s family was overwhelmed by the support and extremely thankful for all the help that they have received from our industry.

Our most recent event was our annual Member Championship, which was hosted by Roger Olmstead at Reedy Creek Golf Course in Smithfield, NC. Dr. Leon Lucas was our guest speaker and he updated everyone on what he has seen this year as he has traveled the Carolina’s with the CGA. Terry Kallam edged out Les Bailey as the gross champion on a scorecard playoff after they each shot 77. Jonathan Richardson was the net champion with a net of 64 followed by Robert Furr who had a net of 68, good playing guys.

Our next event is our Ryder Cup matches against the guys from the Cape Fear Association. This event will be Monday October 15th at Carolina Colours in New Bern. I am sure Jason Price and his staff will have the golf course in great shape for this fun event. We will end the year at the Country Club of the Crystal Coast on December 6, 2012 with host Andy Ipock where we will have our Annual Meeting and elect 3 new board members. Thanks to everyone who supports our association and our industry.

Brian Green,
ENCTA President
