The Wheat State District invites members from the Central and Texoma districts to join them on March 16-17, 2017 in Manhattan, Kansas for the annual spring joint districts’ meeting. The meeting will be held at the Kansas State University IGP Institute Building. The activities begin on Thursday March 16 with the technical sessions in the morning, lunch, and follow with tours of the Hal Ross Flour Mill, O.H. Kruse Feed Innovation Center, & Kansas Wheat & Innovation Center. A social hour and banquet will follow that evening. The golf outing will begin Friday morning.
The Holiday Inn At The Campus has reserved a block of (20) rooms on Wed. (3/15) & (20) rooms on Thurs. (3/16). A reduced rate of $99.95/per night (plus taxes) has been established for IAOM guests (Kings & Doubles). Please make reservations by the March 1, 2017 cut-off date to receive this rate. Rooms will revert to a space and rate available basis after March 1.
The Purple Ash Golf Tournament will be held on Friday, March 17 at Colbert Hills with tee times beginning at 10:00 am. followed by lunch after golf. Golf registration includes green fees, cart rental, range balls and lunch.
For planning purposes, advance registration is greatly appreciated. Please let us know which functions you will be attending. Because we have to guarantee a certain number of attendees for the banquet and golf, there will be no refunds for cancellations made after March 1.
We are excited for this opportunity to host a joint meeting with these three great districts. I hope you will be able to make arrangements to attend. We are working on putting together some worthwhile technical sessions for your benefit. Dress for the meetings is casual.
Please make your reservations today. Thank you and see you there!
