Workshop Schedule

9:00am - 10:15am - Session One: Doing More With Less: Running A Successful Maintenance Program on a Budget 
Presented by Tel Fehlhafer, Graham Recreation and Parks
Very often, maintenance professionals are asked to maintain a certain level of quality while their budgets are being lowered. This session will discuss how to continue to do excellent work and even improve the quality of your ball fields and turf on a budget.

10:30am - 11:45am - Session Two: Athletic Fields and Turf Maintenance Roundtables 
Facilitated by Tel Fehlhafer, Graham Recreation and Parks and Casey Gural, Burlington Recreation and Parks
The roundtable session is a great opportunity to network and share stories and ideas about issues related to ballfield and athletic turf maintenance with fellow professionals from different departments. Share the techniques that have worked for your department and learn new tips and takeaways from other departments as well.

11:45am - 12:45pm - Lunch

12:45pm - 2:00pm - Session Three: Ballfield Maintenance and Tour of Burlington Athletic Stadium
Presented by Casey Gural, Burlington Recreation and Parks
This session will begin with an in-depth discussion of how Burlington maintains its athletic fields, including step-by-step descriptions of some of their best practices. Topics will include making lines on your fields last longer, how to limit and repair turf damage, and an annual pesticide application schedule. Following this discussion, there will be a tour of the Burlington Athletic Stadium, the home of Minor League team the Burlington Royals. Casey will outline the maintenance practices used on the professional ballfield during the tour.
