He has written several articles for Golf Course Industry, and GreenMaster magazines, helped Insurance Offices of America develop a safety calendar and training program for their clients, and speaks to local Golf Course Superintendent Associations about developing safety programs at their courses.

    Corporate Golf and Turf Optimization Manager, Finch Services

    This event will kick off at 9:00 am on Monday the 16th at the Finch Services Westminster location.  It will include a morning session, followed by lunch (provided by FSI), and an afternoon session that will run till around 2:00 pm.

    We'll be covering cutting unit theory & proper setup, aftercut appearance & roller configuration, along with machine optimization & preventative maintenance.  We intend to build in enough time at the end for open discussion, and if there are any topics you would like to be covered we would be happy to accommodate.

    Our goal is to wrap up in time for those that hope to beat beltway traffic.


    We ask that all who plan to attend to RSVP by email to RSVP@finchinc.com
