President’s Newsletter – March/April 2015

Eastern Members and Colleagues:

ENCTA started off the year with our annual pesticide conference at Wayne Community College. Rob Woods hosted the meeting that included 4 hours of education and a great lunch. Special thanks goes to Ryan Stanley from Foster Lake and Pond Management, Lee Butler and Dr. Travis Gannon both from NC State for their presentations.

Josh Purvis will host our March meeting at Carolina Colours Golf Club in New Bern. David Hardy from NCDA & CS will speak on How to Best Interpret Soil, Water and Plant Test Results. We have not been to Carolina Colours in a while and I know we will be in for a treat. I am sure the course will be in great shape for those who chose to play.

David Coley will host our April meeting at Belmont Lake Preserve Golf Club on April 16th. A representative from A.C. Schultes will speak on Understanding Wells & Pump Stations: Keeping Your Course on Course.
Our fundraising tournament will be on May 14th at Timberlake Golf Club. Please plan on joining us for this important event where the proceeds help support turfgrass research, scholarships and other aspects of the turf industry.

I would like to thank all of our 2015 sponsors and the ENCTA board members for their continued efforts to ensure the success of the association. Please visit our website at and our Facebook page for more dates and information on our 2015 schedule.

Stanley Elliott, CGCS
