BUFFALO GROVE, IL—Turface Athletics is adding an extra jolt of excitement to the upcoming fall sports season. A new promotion gives coaches and groundskeepers a unique opportunity to improve the quality of their sports fields.

Visitors submitting a registration form on www.turface.com between now and October 31, 2008, will be entered into a sweepstakes for the chance to win $5,000 in field maintenance supplies and a day of on-site consultation from Chicago Bears head groundskeeper, Ken Mrock. Turface Athletics hopes to continue to educate coaches and groundskeepers on the benefit of using Turface sports field conditioners to prevent damage and aid recovery on natural grass fields.

“Grass fields take a beating during the fall season as a result of rain and heavy foot traffic,” said Joe Betulius, vice president of sales for Profile Products. “Applying Profile products has been proven to minimize damage and help fields return to top form for the next game.”


Profile product claims are supported by recent research unveiled by Pamela Sherratt, sports turf specialist at The Ohio State University. Sherratt simulated extensive rain and foot traffic, and proved that preventative applications of Field & Fairway outperformed untreated fields and even sand treatments. Her research, along with testimonials from Chicago Bears’ head groundskeeper Ken Mrock, is the highlight of the Turface Coaches and Groundskeepers Guide, also found at www.turface.com.


In addition to educational support and the customer sweepstakes, Turface is extending a rebate offer on each ton of Field & Fairway, Field & Fairway Emerald, or Turface MVP purchased between now and October 31, 2008. Customers can find their area Turface distributor and learn more about the rebate at www.turface.com or by calling (800) 207-6457.

“We are extremely proud of our products and want to make it possible for turf managers at every level to give them a try,” said Betulius. “These offers are just the beginning of the long-term benefits and cost savings schools and park districts will realize when they take the steps to save their turf this fall.”
