By |  February 5, 2018 0 Comments

Syngenta’s Mobile Wellness Unit will be at booth 1118 during GIS 2018.

During the 2018 Golf Industry Show (GIS), taking place Feb. 3-8 in San Antonio, Syngenta will be hosting activities to promote personal wellness as well as select the winner of its Condition. Perform. Recover photo contest.

Health screenings

Syngenta will be offering free health screenings at its Mobile Wellness Unit (booth #1118).

Registered nurses will be on-site to provide blood pressure measurements, cholesterol level assessments, glucose analyses and more. Health counseling for medical concerns and informational brochures discussing health and wellness topics will also be provided.

The company will be accepting walk-ins, but since space is limited, the company asks that interested individuals sign up here for a time slot.

Condition. Perform. Recover. photo contest

This summer, Syngenta asked superintendents to share a photo showing how they condition themselves or their turf to perform and recover season after season.

Finalists have been chosen, and now it’s time to vote for your favorite photos in the Turf Fitness and Personal Fitness categories. The grand prize for both photo contests is $2,500.

Vote at booth 16065 or by visiting from Feb. 1-8 to be entered for a chance to be randomly selected to win one of the following prizes:

  • A 22-inch Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker (one awarded each day of the trade show); and
  • A Weber iGrill 2 Bluetooth thermometer (five awarded each day of the trade show).

Entries with the most votes will be selected as grand prize winners and the two recipients of the $2,500 grand prizes will be announced on the @SyngentaTurf Twitter account and by Feb. 12.

GIS 5k

Hosted by the GCSAA and Syngenta, the 5k fun run will be Thursday, Feb. 8 at 6 a.m. and will start at the Historic Sunset Station.

All registration proceeds will benefit the Environmental Institute for Golf (EIFG). Join the conversation on social media by sharing a photo showing how you condition, perform and recover and use the hashtag #TurfInAction.
