Our goal at SportsField Management is to provide you with access to information, people and products that can help you be the best at what you do. In this issue we are excited to present our newest resource for sports field managers, the first annual All-Industry Directory (page 15). The directory is designed to provide you with easy access to companies that are leading the industry. Search for the phone numbers and Web addresses of your favorite manufacturers, or browse the product categories to see who is offering the tools you need. With all of this product information in one user-friendly directory, we hope you’ll keep this issue on your desk year-round. Should you happen to misplace your copy, don’t panic. The entire All-Industry Directory will also be available on our Web site, www.sportsfieldmanagementmagazine.com.

Another fantastic resource for anyone making a living caring for turf is LawnSite.com, the green industry’s largest online community. Every day, thousands of landscapers, groundskeepers and lawn care providers meet online to discuss the industry. There’s even a special forum dedicated exclusively to discussions about public grounds and athletic field care. Register on the site to post questions about field care, offer advice to your peers and see what groundskeepers across the country are up to. LawnSite.com is brought to you by Moose River Media, publishers of SportsField Management, and best of all, it’s completely free.

As always, I encourage you all to contact me with your thoughts on the magazine. If there’s a topic you’d like to see covered, let me know. If you have a question about a company or product you’ve seen in our pages, I’ll do my best to answer it for you. Your opinions are an invaluable resource to me, so get in touch and let me know how I can make SportsField Management an even more beneficial resource for you.
