I apologise this went out a bit late as we had a few IT issues last week.
The 2017 conference is on right now as I post this and I hope everyone is enjoying themselves. Congratulations to Brett Woodward for winning the AGCSA golf championships @ Pelican Waters well deserved.
The conference is back at Novotel Twin Waters on the sunshine coast in Queensland- sorry Jason Haines it would be great to be on your sunny coast.
They are some great talks this week. I really like the one with keynote speaker Dr Mike Richardson, David Warwick and John Neylan on effects of shade. There is some really good ground breaking stuff here with the work Avondale Golf Club is doing. As well some good workshops on herbicide resistance and poa management which are very topical at the moment.
For the trade we will be there and we will be close to two of our major agents Fernland Agencies and Greenway Turf Solutions.
This year will be showcasing our new fungicide Emerald. A brand new contact Fungicide for the control of dollar spot, helmo, anthracnose and gray leaf spot. At this time registered is pending and subject to APVMA approval. However that should not be too far away.
As well we will be there to answer any questions you have. Please come by and see us.

This is the intro podcast i did with Bill about the conference
I’ve been thinking about this for a bit of time especially after the success of the US one which i have posted before (If you don’t know what I’m speaking about have a look at this post here from the Vegas GIS the 2nd ever Tweetup ) It was a great way to meet people that i would not normally of met if it wasn’t for twitter and made some long term friendship because of it. As I posted last night thank to @itweetturf @GCI_Magaine @TurfRepublic for the inspiration
After a discussion with Dean Hardman from the Australian Golf Course on the conference he said he would like to meet all the people who are on twitter and facebook in person. So I said we can look at organising it. With help from Peter Frewin and the AGCSA staff we decided to hold a short meet and greet (TWEETUP) during the opening to the trade show on the Tuesday.. All details are below. So please come along there will be drinks around the place and a great way to meet those on social media face to face.
