    Packers.  Special thanks to our hosts Bart Bartelme and Allen Johnson as well as all their   

    staff.  Bart did a great job on the question and answer session about sports field 

    management with the Green Bay Packers.  We  also enjoyed two excellent presentations

    by Tim Van Loo, Manager of  Athletic Turf/Grounds for the Iowa State University.  Also,
