    Thought I'd post what I know of for the remainder of the "off"-season, as far as conferences, etc.

    INLA P.L.A.N.T.S and Winter Meeting, 12-14, RCA Dome and Convention Center http://www.inla1.org
    IPLLA Winter Meeting (is that the correct term?), I believe is 18-20 at the Convention Center
    Mid-Am Trade Show, 19-21, Chicago
    C.E.N.T.S- Columbus, don't know the dates, can't remember what it stands for.:)
    Indiana Arborists Assoc. Winter Meeting, don't remember the dates but I can get them if anyone is interested

    Versa-lok certification seminar at Irvins, on the 8th, I believe
    ICPI certification, 12-13, http://www.icpi.org/contractors/calendar.cfm

    March is the Indy Flower and Patio Show, and I'm sure a whole lot of county shows.:)

    Plus there are a LOT of dates that the State Chemist's Office is offering the core and the specialized licenses. I believe I'm going for the core on Feb 7, and ornamentals on the 15th...

    If I missed something, feel free to add it. If anyone needs more info or contact names/numbers, I'll help however I can.

    Hope this helps someone!

    Thanks Dan!
    Don't forget the Midwest Regional Turf Foundation's Turf Expt Jan. 18-20. There are up to 9 CCH's for the guys that need them. I hear the Short Course is filling up fast.

    Just one more. For the DC guys, Bill Parrish of Fine Lines Lawn (a great guy) is putting together a Factory Tour of the DC Factory Jan 13-15. It's free and should be a great time and a good place to meet a bunch of good guys. For more information search Bills sight "Fine Lines Lawn" for a link.

    OK, since I posted the dates of the conferences and other things-

    Is anyone going to PLANTS next week? I'll be there all three days...

    I'll also be taking the core exam for applicator's license on Feb 7, and 3a exam on Feb 15. I think we'll also be going to the Versa-lok seminar as well.

    Anyone going to be at any of these? I'd like to put some faces with some names!

    I'm planning on P.L.A.N.T.S. for a while Thursday and Friday (Weather Permitting.

    Gonna do 2 or 3 days of the Turf Expo even though I don't need the CCH's.

    Just may do a Category 5 this year. Don't know when.

    Anybody else?????

    Are Russ and I the only ones here that are going to PLANTS?

    I'd like to put some faces with more names than just his.:)

    Is everyone aware that the Dixie Chopper bike will be at the trade show on Thursday and Friday? Not to mention a free lunch on the trade show floor on Thursday? Last year's lunch was good, beer and all!:D

    Hope to see more of you there!

    I went to the PLANTS show today. I plan on going all week. DFELIX, hope I see you there later this week.

    If anyone ever gets to see Dwight Hughes from Hughes Nursery in Iowa, see him. Very inspirational and energetic speaker.
