1. Turbo Tom and Too Tall Tim
Roaming the South Dakota GCSA trade show we saw two familiar faces — Tom Steigauf, Bayer Environmental Science, and Tim Fleegel, MTI Distributing, Toro distributor for the upper Midwest.


2. Fancy flip phone
Initially we were impressed to see Ken Bouldan, Moccasin Creek CC, Aberdeen, S.D., rocking a flip phone at the South Dakota GCSA conference. And then we saw…


3. Five for flipping
That Bouldan was not alone in his appreciation of the flip phone! Then we asked why. Answer: They’re more rugged and durable — just like our readers in South Dakota.


4. One last rodeo
It was a retirement party for Dean Heymans, long-time superintendent at Hillsview GC in Pierre, S.D. Front row, left to right: Ross Santjer, Moccasin Creek CC, Aberdeen, S.D.; Bill Stromberg, Madison (S.D.) G&CC; Heymans; Tedd Evans, CGCS, Brookings (S.D.) CC; (Back row) John DeLong, Slayton (Minn.) CC; Waren Muller, CGCS, Hillcrest G&CC, Yankton, S.D. and Mark Clark, The Bluffs, Vermillion, S.D.


5. Wit’s world
Rick Wit, CGCS, along with friend Brian Mohr, Spencer (Iowa) Municipal GC. Wit wears two hats in South Dakota, that of superintendent at the Golf Club at Red Rock, Rapid City, S.D., and as executive director of the SDGCSA. He clearly wears those hats well.


6. Make golf fun
Again Kevin Norby (right), ASGCA, wrote a blog for Golfdom called “Make golf fun again!” Jason Happe (left), Southern Hills GC, Hot Springs, S.D., couldn’t agree more.


7. Western New York state of mind
Lest you think we only visited South Dakota this month, we present the following photo. Kevin Doyle, GCSAA field staff for the Northeast Region, with Golfdom publisher Pat Roberts, at the WNYGCSA/FLAGCS annual education day, where Roberts was keynote speaker.
