traveled down to Milwaukee last week for the biannual Reinders Turf Conference.  This is the best two day educational seminar in the country put on by a distributor.  They attract many great speakers from around the country to give talks on an mulitude of subject relating to our industry.  Most of the companies that Reinders represents set up a booth and you have the opportunity to talk to them one on one.  
Always a must see/go to event especially since it is so economical.

Dr Vargas from MSU has presented at every Reinders show for 40+ years.  He is always entertaining and informative.  

The always engaging Dr. Kerns from NC State was also on hand to present data and discuss his resent findings.

This was a very valuable talk about wire tracking.  I was able to ask many questions and see up close demonstrations on how several different Tracking products work.  
The owner of Armada Tech. did a wonderful job fielding questions and explaining how to properly use the technology.  

Turf breeder Dr. Brilman from Seed Research gave a great lecture on the newest bentgrass varieties and how they compare in trials.

I took a shuttle over to the Reinders main facility on day 2 so I could learn more about wire and hydraulic troubleshooting.  A fantastic discussion with knowledge that I can apply immediately on the job.  

Thank you Reinders!  I look forward to your next show in 2017
