The big show, anchored by the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA), was held Feb. 23-Feb. 26 in San Antonio, with most activities occurring at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center. Here are some of the things we saw and heard at the show:

BASF’s booth featured a little bit of everything, including a Twitter-activated vending machine that dispensed Jackery portable smartphone chargers when superintendents tweeted their stories behind how they these the company’s Lexicon Intrinsic brand or Xzemplar fungicides. “We’ve had so many great responses to the products since they were introduced — this is one way to thank people for sharing their stories,” said Nick Tresslar, BASF’s marketing manager of turf and ornamentals.

In the afternoon on exhibiting days, BASF rolled out the brats and beers for show goers.
