West Slope Superintendents 2018 Spring Meeting Returns

The West Slope Superintendents' spring 2018 event has been scheduled. After missing our fall 2017 meeting, we are set to meet on May 7th at the venerable Ironbridge Golf Club in Carbondale, Colorado. I am assuming that I have used the term venerable correctly although I wouldn't bet my own money on it. If the past is any indicator, this will be a great meeting at an amazing venue. For those of you that haven't played here for a few years, there have been some substantial changes made to the course. Probably haven't made it any easier though is my guess. Our sponsor for this meeting is the always generous Dan Melchior and the LL Johnson Co.

Before we enjoy playing one of the great mountain courses in the state we will have an interesting educational session along with a continental breakfast. Our speaker is Mark Koepsell, an account representative with Healthy Ponds by Bioverse. In his presentation "Natural and Chemical Solutions for Treating Pond Water", Mark will speak on a variety of topics related to pond management for golf courses covering items such as measuring the volume of a body of water to identifying different types of algae and how to treat them. A thank you to Denton Kurtz of Simplot Partners for procuring this speaker for our meeting.
