SE Asia Seminar Week
I’m at Kuala Lumpur International Airport now, returning to Bangkok after concluding three turfgrass management seminars and a turfgrass field day over the past eight days in Thailand, Philippines, and Malaysia. Steve Isaac from The R&A came from Scotland for these seminars; Dr. Doug Soldat (blue shirt) and Dr. Jim Kerns (orange shirt) came from the United States.
These seminars were especially fun because of the international nature of the delegates at each event. Over the course of the week there were delegates from Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Australia, Brunei, New Zealand, the United States, Hong Kong, China, Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Qatar, India, Taiwan, Indonesia — perhaps other countries were represented also — I disremember. This was a great chance to meet with friends from the turfgrass industry and to make new friends; the full-day sustainable turfgrass management seminars were followed by social events each evening.
