It’s safe to say that due to the extremes of weather 2012 has been one of the toughest years in living memory for greenkeepers across the UK. This means a visit to BTME in January is the ideal place to share problems, discuss solutions with fellow greenkeepers and other turf professionals.
Glenn Kirby , Hockley Golf Club explained, “Firstly, a visit to BTME is essential for me to keep up to date with the latest technology. In these times when budgets are under more scrutiny than ever, we’re looking at our machinery maintenance costs and I’m also keen to attend some machinery training.
“BTME is also a terrific opportunity to increase the skill set of existing members of our team. It will be useful for me to educate our management team who are heading up to Harrogate with me – BTME will help me get them on board with my way of thinking and introduce them to others in the industry who have the same mindset.”
BIGGA are also promising that visitors will be shaken not stirred at the 2013 BIGGA Social Event which has a James Bond theme.
The action begins at 7pm on Tuesday 22 January at the Old Swan Hotel in Harrogate. Tickets cost just £25 and include an arrival drink, dinner, entertainment and other surprises.
