As our summer turf stress is coming to an end and the kids head back to school (unless you’re an empty nester like Angela and I), hopefully you can all plan to attend the upcoming meetings we have scheduled. We have our Fall education on Monday, September 30th at The Rancho Bernardo Inn followed by our trip over to beautiful Catalina Island on October 21st. Both will include some great education as well as great fun with golf after, if you wish to play.
For those of you who attended the barbeques down at the boat club, I hope you had as much fun as I did. And, for those of you who missed it, hopefully you can come to the next one we plan. A big thank you to Brad Baker who set it up.
Last week was the Past President’s Cup held at Encinitas Ranch. Kent did a wonderful job setting up the event and it was great to see so many past presidents attend. I encourage you all to run for the board and to get involved in your association, even if it means to simply volunteer by helping out at an event.
This past month we lost a fellow Superintendent, Walter Smith. I personally didn’t get the opportunity to know Walter, but from what others told me, he was a wonderful man with a kind heart. Walter leaves behind his wife and daughter, and many family and friends. If you would like to help out the family with a donation please contact Carey for details.
If you are interested in hosting a meeting or event, please contact myself, Carey or any of our wonderful board members and we would be happy to discuss options and talk more about it. I hope to see you all at one of our upcoming meetings and in the meantime, please let us know if there is anything we can do to better our association. Have a great Fall Season!
