BC Summer Field Day Being Re-shaped

The BC Turf Management Summer Field Day is taking place as scheduled on July 27th, 2022 at McArthur Island Park in Kamloops, BC, with some program changes to make it easier for both turf manager delegates and vendors to participate.

“The late spring, busy summer, staff shortages, fuel prices and a few other factors have prompted a re-shaping of this event,” stated WCTA Executive Director Jerry Rousseau, adding, “instead of a formal field day with a trade show and name badges, it’s going to look a lot more like a regional meeting focussed on education and networking at a very low cost for everyone attending.”  Here’s the rundown:

Tuesday, July 26th – Kamloops Golf and Country Club
11:26am Golf outing $75 + GST per person includes ½ cart (space limited)
