NESTMA Annual Meeting to examine BMPs at Gillette Stadium
The New England Sports Turf Managers Association (NESTMA) Annual Meeting will be held December 6 at the German Club in Walpole, Mass. Start the holiday season off right with a Biergarten-styled meeting that will feature a stellar presentation, delicious food, and great company.
The presentation will provide an inside look at the best management practices of Gillette Stadium’s field crew. Field Superintendent Ryan Bjorn will explain how his team tailors its maintenance practices to meet the needs of both the Patriots and the Revolution. It’s not as glamorous as it looks! Learn how league protocols differ between the NFL and MLS; look at the science behind the turfgrass health care; see how his crew flips the field from a soccer match to a football game overnight. All in the name of creating the safest possible playing surface that’s ready to go on game day!
