New Mexico PPK Event
Helena Chemical recently hosted a regional PPK event in Ruidoso, New Mexico. PPK stands for People...Products...Knowledge, the company theme for Helena Chemcial Company. The second annual "Shellacking" of North vs South Golf Course Superintendents included a meeting and tournament for customers of the Albuquerque, NM location. Gary Brooks from Bayer and Judd Fitzgerald from Helena spoke on seasonally relevant issues. The meeting included a roundtable discussion about products and methods that are or aren't working in their region. Just like last year, the south claimed the New Mexico State Champions of the "Shellacking" tournament! It is widely claimed (by the losing northern superintendents) that southern New Mexico superintendents have way too much time on their hands.
Congratulations to Helena Branch Manager Dan Blaeser and the southern superintendent winners.
