From the Secretary’s Desk
By By Sandy Dumke

Spring is here and the flowers are blooming and everyone is talking about their gardens and mowing the lawn. The yard owners are getting the yards cleaned up after the winter’s normal messiness.

We have the 2016 Upper Midwest Convention in the books. I hope everyone that was at Pam’s enjoyed themselves and learned many good ideas to implement in their yards.

I want to send a big Thank You to Pat & Mike and the whole crew from Pam’s. They were very welcoming and helpful.

I also want to thank the venders and sponsors. They spend a lot of time and money to present us with a good trade show. Please keep them all in mind when you are looking for a product or service.

The tour of IRT was wonderful and informative. I did not realize the process that it takes to handle catalytic converters and the other things they recycle.

Our next project will be the Bob Hoffmann Memorial Golf Outing. The date is August 20th at the Ridges Golf Course in WI Rapids WI. There is a registration form in this newsletter. I hope you all consider attending this year. We want to expand the scholarships that can be awarded to the many needy students that apply for them. You do not have to be a golfer to attend. We will have many things for you to do, so come out for a good enjoyable summer outing.

URG Annual Training Conference Recap
By Rob Koepp

I recently attended the URG Annual Training Conference in San Antonio, Texas. Meetings were held April 29th, and 30th. Being the avid golfers we are my crew, and I showed up a day early to play in the golf tournament. A great time was had by all at a beautiful course located right at the resort. We started Friday morning off with a key note speaker named Danny White. Any of you NFL buffs would know him as an ex quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys from 1974-1989. He talked about surrounding yourself with good people (your team). This always results in a better outcome. He also spoke about even when you are surrounded by good people, you being the quarterback (manager/owner) could make an “audible” or “quick decision” and change the outcome to bad.
