    Anybody can go. Its usually $5 cheaper for pre-reg than day of show walk-in. But, no refunds on pre-reg. Last year walk-ins were $35, well worth it in my opinion just in free samples of roundup, software, coffee mugs etc.

    Its at the exhibition hall (basement) of the Civic Center.

    See you there.

    July??? Nothing happens round here in July! Lots of car shows, thats about it. And the river festival in Hartford during the 4th.

    Seriously, I post any relevant events as I learn of them.

    Big E runs mid-September-October, first weekend.

    Hey Guys -

    I've been busy and haven't had a chance to sign on lately. The show mailings will go out this month. To add yourself to the list call (203) 699-9912 or e-mail our office - CGKA@snet.net. If you have any questions about the show, or want information about joining the Connecticut grounds Keepers Association contact me (Phil) at SLSNursery@aol.com.

    Should be a good trade show, and plenty of recertification credits for pesticide license holders.

    We have a speaker from ALCA coming, who is right on top of industry activity, happenings, etc.

    I expect to have information on the CLT program CGKA will be running as an ALCA franchisee.

    There will be technical and informative lectures

    Scholarships are awarded to UCONN Plant Science students

    You'll have a chance to meet plenty of other companies for an exciting trade show with a couple hundred vendor booths.

    I hope to see you there.
