Upcoming Turf Workshops
We invite you to attend any of our workshops for athletic field maintenance training in Illinois. We also review other topics like caring for and handling sports field maintenance equipment.

ILSTMA Fall Maintenance Facility Tour 2018:
The ILSTMA Fall Maintenance Facility Tour hosted by Glenview Park District yesterday was a great success! People enjoyed touring the facilities, asking questions, and taking pictures of the different types of facilities. People commented on the great ideas they would be taking back to their own organizations.
The tour started at the Glenview Park District Facility Services West Building and our host for this facility and throughout the day was Brent Carpenter. He gave us an overall history of the facility, guided the tour, and answered questions. The tour continued by coach bus to Glenview Park Golf Club Maintenance Facility. There we learned the building’s history and questions were answered by our host, Todd Vermillion. We were lucky enough to have time to stop at the award-winning East Maintenance Facility where Kris Mikkelsen was available to answer questions and guide us through the different types of shops. Our last stop was at to The Grove Maintenance Facility, and our host Phil Monroe gave us the opportunity to look around and ask all types of questions . The tour then ended at the Facility Service West Building where we gave our thanks to Brent Carpenter and Glenview Park District for hosting us and thanks to Sharon, our bus driver from Windy City Limousine.
Some of the group met at North Branch Pizza & Burger Company (4520 W. Lake Avenue, Glenview, IL 60025) after the tour to chat with others and some of our board members.
