ENCTA President’s Newsletter – June 5, 2014

ENCTA Members and Colleagues

We had a great meeting in April. Thanks to Jim Hoffman and his staff at River Bend Country Club in New Bern for hosting the event. Peter Maybach from M & M Consulting did an excellent job and we would like to thank him for coming. He talked about how your water quality affects turfgrass.

ENCTA has so much to be thankful for. Between the support of our renewing sponsors for 2014, our new sponsors for 2014 and everyone that supported our recent fundraising tournament. We are having a great year. Our fundraising tournament sponsored by Cardinal Chemical took place on May 15 at Wedgewood Golf Course in Wilson, NC. Thanks to Daniel Lancaster and his staff for having the course in great condition.

In March, we loss a long time ENCTA member, Ronnie McGhee, he was a loving husband and father; he was a veteran of the US Air Force and retired from the US Postal Service. An avid golfer, he spent years employed at Green Hill Country Club in Louisburg. Our prayers go out to his family.

Our next meeting will be at Morehead City Country Club hosted by William Toms on June 19. Rick Fletcher from NuFarm will be speaking on Fungicide resistance and rotation. In July we will have a family night at a Wilson Tobs baseball game, sponsored by Vandemark Farms. This event will be hosted by Dale Edmonds on July 24th and will give us a great opportunity relax and spend time with our families. We would like to thank all of our 2014 sponsors and invite all of our members to our next few meetings. Please visit our website at www.encta.org and our Facebook page for more dates and information on our 2014 schedule.
