Equipment Technician meeting – Norwood Hills – April 25th

Howdy All,

There’s snow in the forecast for this weekend so it must be time for the Spring technicians meeting…whaaaat?... mowing greens one day, plowing snow the next, Been around here almost 52 years and still not quite used to it. Anyway, we’re not gonna let some “normal” St. Louis weather get in the way of our gathering. We will be meeting at Norwood Hills on Wednesday, April 25th. Sorry for the short notice, April really snuck up on me.  A special thanks in advance to Mike Null, Steve Wright, and the rest of their crew. Martin Rawe and Jeff Lucas will be sharing a hydraulic system presentation with us. It will be excellent. I have attached a flyer with additional details. Once again I dropped the ball on the contact list so please share the invite with as many fellow wrenchers as possible. Looking forward to seeing you all there. Regards,

This will be the first meeting of the year that the MVGCSA will be hosting in 2018 to provide a networking and educational opportunity for Equipment Managers. The education topic will be presented by Jeff Lucas and Martin Rawe from MTI Distributing. They will be helping us become more knowledgeable about hydraulic systems. The presentation will cover simple hydraulic system fundamentals, field testing, instrument testing, how to understand the results, and what to do once you understand them. We look forward to them sharing their knowledge with us. And as usual, there will be plenty of time for networking and sharing best practices. Please RSVP by Monday, April 23rd for meal planning.
