Once again, the Western Canada Turfgrass Association will be host to the Canadian Golf Superintendents and the Canadian International Turfgrass Conference & Trade Show (CITCTS) taking place February 17-21, 2014 at the Vancouver Trade and Convention Centre.
By Jerry Rousseau
Our 50th anniversary conference and trade show was an incredible success. Although a final delegate tally is not yet ready, attendance was better than expected with 300+ turf managers participating. Supplier support was staggering with 79 companies selling out the trade show floor even after additional space was created several weeks prior to the event to meet the needs of increased demand for booth space. This number was up significantly over the 62 companies participating in Victoria last year and is historically second only to a tie of 81 exhibiting in Victoria in 2009 and Penticton in 2005.
The WCTA is pleased to announce our 2013 Silent Auction raised $10,901 for turfgrass research. These funds are put directly into turf research projects and we're happy to have exceeded this year's goal of raising $10,000. Keep reading for the auction results...
