On August 2nd, Newstripe had the pleasure of sponsoring the 27th Annual Lawn Mower Open, organized by the Colorado Sports Turf Managers Association (CSTMA) at the scenic Pinery Country Club in Parker, Colorado. This annual charity golf event gathers industry professionals from across the state to raise much-needed scholarship funds for students interested in a sports turf career.
With some great weather, fun contests, and lots of professional networking, this event was a definite summer highlight for everyone involved, especially after many months of covid-related isolation.
In addition to being one of the event’s corporate sponsors, Newstripe organized two of the tournament’s on-course games: “Stay on the Green” and “Stay Inside the Circle”. These contests provided a great opportunity for Newstripe to display the incredible accuracy of its two new line striping machines, LineRider GPS+ and NewRider 5000 GPS, that feature automated field layout and steering using advanced GPS technology.
After the post-tournament banquet wrapped up, it seemed that everyone enjoyed being together in a beautiful outdoor setting, taking a much-needed work break for their computers and phones, and raising money to support the next generation of sports turf professionals.
The Newstripe team is already looking forward to next year’s event.
