Region 3 Fall Field Day

The TXSTMA rolled South in September and visited Constellation Park, home of the Sugar Land Skeeters. Host Brad Detmore provided a terrific venue that included a tour of the stadium and on field demonstrations conducted by many of our great affiliate vendors. The Skeeters only days before were crowned Atlantic League Champions and we joined the celebration! Constellation Park is a beautiful venue and a great place to catch a game.

Thanks to all who attended at this special event and special kudos to the crew from the city of Temple who came all the way to Houston!  Turnout was great with close to 50 members in attendance! Way to go members!

Thanks to Past President Rusty Walker CSFM for pinch hitting for President Kevin Lebanik  and conducting the meeting. Attendees arrived early and assembled at the ballpark foyer. TXSTMA meetings are great opportunities to network with your peers and even industry experts.

Thanks to Raymond Miller of Dow and Cassie Kearns of Barenbrug gave really useful presentations during the education program.  These two are always ready to help out at our events and we appreciate it.

On field demonstrations were a big hit during the Field Day on Constellation Field. Thank you Jay  Blodgett with PTP, Jeff Kadlec of GLK Solutions, Darin Eberly with Pioneer, Dennis Klene with Texas Sports Sands, and Tom Burns / Mike Estlinbaum of Ewing. Field Demonstrations are great ways for attendees to view the latest products and equipment, ask questions of the experts and share information and techniques. Always the highlight and this event was no exception.

West Texas Fall Field Day

WOW!!! What a fantastic day in West Texas. Not only did we have awesome education sessions, equipment demonstrations, lunch, etc. but, great participation form the folks in the West! Thank you Greg Carroll and everyone involved. We can’t wait to head west in 2017!

The highlight of the day was the product demonstrations. Everyone had a great time learning about the latest and greatest equipment. As you can see in the photos, many of the guests tried the equipment out for themselves.

Region 2 Summer Field Day – UT Austin

Rain in July…and lots of it. But it didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of the participants of the Region 2 Summer Field Day at the University of Texas in Austin. Weston Floyd called several audibles during the day to make it an enjoyable and productive meeting. A great slate of educational speakers and vendor presentations kept us plenty busy until Mother Nature finally cooperated and allowed a tour of the UT facilities. Maybe a rain check for 2017?

When Mother Nature visits with a very rainy day all you can do is go with the flow. We set up check-in under the bleachers…it eventually was soaked with rain. We sent the attendees to  Weston Floyd’s shop for a tour and talk. We had to cancel the tour of the baseball and softball fields.

AND FINALLY…Mother Nature cooperated. The rain cleared up and we were able to go onto the football field for a tour, pictures, and a little cutting up.
