Finish Strong

As we wind into the fall of what was one of the easiest or toughest seasons our members have had depending on the level of winter damage at your facility we are also looking to this winter. The MiGCSA hosts 3 fundraisers every year starting with Arcadia Bluffs in June. Our second was at Battle Creek Country Club on the 10th of September and our final is at Tam-O-Shanter C.C. on October 6th.

After the Arcadai record breaking attendance we were running $13,000 ahead of last year in revenue. However with a low turnout at the Western event we lost some ground. If we can have good attendance at Tam-O-Shanter in two weeks we can hopefully present a much larger check to the Michigan Turfgrass Foundation in January.

Please come out and help us finish this year with a great event and support the turf research that now includes a cold weather growth chamber to hopefully come up with some BMP's for winter survival. You can register for this event here and remember this is open to anyone so please bring your neighbors and friends to help us sell this event out! 

The 2013 Fundraisers raised $14,021.18 we are hoping to come close to doubling that amount this year.
