Does the title of this workshop take you back to that time you had to read, “A Tale of Two Cities”? I promise you that this workshop will be a whole lot more fun! This will be an interactive workshop where you can learn about different playing surfaces, player safety, field testing, and actually perform the tests yourself! This is a rare opportunity to hear from some of the best in the industry about topics that are becoming a lot more popular and talked about in the industry. You’ve likely heard by now that the Texas Rangers are installing a synthetic surface on their new field. Well, you are in for a treat! The Arizona Diamondbacks is the only other field to have the exact surface that the Rangers will install next year. If you attend the workshop, you will have the opportunity to learn what it was like to go from a natural surface to this brand-new synthetic surface that was developed by Shaw Turf. The cost of the workshop will be $20/person and will include CEU’s from the National STMA Certified Sports Field Manager program and the Texas Turfgrass Association Certified Professional Turf Manager program. The registration fee will also include breakfast, lunch, a giftbag from our sponsors, and door prizes. Don’t miss this fun opportunity to learn.
