Moncton, N.B. will be the host city for the Atlantic provinces' first Sports Turf Field Day on Thursday, July 21. The event, to be held at the Moncton Coliseum and the CN Sportplexe, is a presentation of The Sports Turf Association.
Educational sessions will be held at the Moncton Coliseum followed by practical on-the-field training and a tailgate tradeshow at the nearby CN Sportplexe.
The Field Day Committee is applying the finishing touches to the program. The speaker lineup includes Dr. Eric Lyons and Dr. Katerina Jordan from the University of Guelph, home of the world-class Guelph Turfgrass Institute.

The Sports Turf Association was conceived in 1987 when, after a brainstorming session at the University of Guelph, a broad segment of the turf industry endorsed its need. Of particular concern at that meeting was the need to minimize and avoid injury to participants using athletic fields where they relate to sports turf. More than two decades later, the Sports Turf Association continues to promote better, safer sports turf through innovation, education and professional programs.
