City of Kamloops to Host 2022 Summer Field Day

After a lengthy hiatus for well-known reasons, the Western Canada Turfgrass Association (WCTA) and Sports Turf Canada (STC) are very excited to announce that our first summer field day since 2019 will take place July 27, 2022 at McArthur Island Park in Kamloops, BC, with a golf outing planned for July 26th, hosted by the Kamloops Golf & Country Club.

“A two-day event should be an immediate clue that this won’t be your average field day,” stated WCTA President Gary Bartley of UBC Athletics.  He added, “It’s been a long time in the making and we wanted to add another dimension by turning this into a much more social event.  Come for the whole thing, just the education and outdoor trade show or whatever you decide, but we are looking forward to gathering safely, in-person, in the 'Tournament Capital of Canada' this coming summer.”

Organization is well underway - further information and registration is coming soon!
