The event was split into two education formats: one catering to equipment managers, the other to superintendents. There was some crossover between the education, with a reel grinding course covering basics offered to superintendents, and an advanced reel grinding course put on for the equipment managers; additional equipment manager education featured updates and diagnostic testing of Tier-4 engines. All presenters provided a wealth of knowledge which many in attendance will be able to take back and implement at their courses.
It was great to see both of these membership classifications come together for a day of education, networking, and fun. The equipment manager and superintendent positions go hand-in-hand at any facility, and their individual success depends upon each other. Thank you to the Tri-State GCSA board for setting up this beneficial event; I look forward to seeing its growth over the coming years.
