Carolinas Golf Superintendent Association Conference Adds Early Registration Prizes

Carolinas Golf Course Superintendents Association

Thanks to golf industry suppliers rallying in support, Conference Comes to You – the Carolinas GCSA’s online education conference – will now give away an additional $10,000 in cash to early registrants. A total of 40 prizes, ranging from $100 to $1,000 will be given away over two drawings, on October 16 and October 30. This is in addition to $30,000 in cash prizes to be drawn on December 21 after the conference ends.

Attendees will earn one entry in the Early Bird registration giveaway for every seminar they take. For example, someone who registers for three classes before October 16 will have three entries in that drawing and three in the October 30 drawing. They will also be eligible for three entries in the end-of-show drawing.

“Obviously, this is a great incentive for golf course superintendents and other industry members to sign up immediately,” Carolinas GCSA executive director Tim Kreger says. “They already have access to first-class education at a fair price, but if they register now, they can also get three bites at a cherry that has grown to $40,000.”

Even so, Kreger says the most significant element of it all is in the sheer volume of support from industry partners and sponsors. To date, nearly three dozen companies have pledged financial backing for Conference Comes to You, which offers 30 distinct seminars over 30 days starting November 2. The online conference takes the place of the traditional Carolinas GCSA Conference and Trade Show, cancelled this year because of the coronavirus pandemic.

“We were incredibly grateful to those companies willing to help us get such a new venture off the ground so quickly,” Kreger says. “But honestly, the fact that so many companies keep coming forward offering to help, has been overwhelming. It speaks to why this industry is so resilient.”

Growing corporate support is mirrored by growing support from superintendent chapters across the U.S. and overseas. Now 40 individual chapters have signed on as official partners of Conference Comes to You, earning their members discounted registration fees. For their participation, those chapters will receive a portion of every seminar fee paid for by one of their members. Recently Canada joined the international contingent when the Ontario GSA signed on.
