Turface Athletics™ Announces 2014 ‘My Turface Story’ Winner

March 2, 2015

BUFFALO GROVE, Ill. (March 2, 2015) — Turface Athletics™ announces the 2014 winner of the “My Turface Story” promotion, a contest designed to reward members of the sports field industry for turning to Turface® products to save or maintain a field.

“My Turface Story” asked field managers, coaches and volunteers to share the ways in which Turface products had improved their sports fields, saved a game from a rainout, helped them solve problems or made their jobs easier. Every entrant received a free Turface Athletics t-shirt and tape measure for entering. 

Dale Miller, the Director of Field Maintenance for the Taylor County Little League in Grafton, West Virginia, was selected to win the grand prize package of four tons of Turface product and $500 to purchase field maintenance supplies. 

“After years of dealing with a hard, wet, soggy and unsafe playing surface, we decided to do something to make a better, safer playing surface,” wrote Miller. “After much research, we purchased 5 tons of Pro League Red and we incorporated it into our playing surface. Three days into our season, it rained pretty hard. The field was in excellent shape — no standing water or muddy spots. Just a playing surface that was ready for the kids.” 

Submissions are now being accepted for the 2015 “My Turface Story” promotion. If Turface products have helped improve your field, submit your story. All entrants will receive a free Turface Athletics t-shirt and tape measure, and one lucky person will win 4 tons of Turface product and $500 to purchase field maintenance supplies. 

“Turface Athletics has a long history of educating and rewarding sports field managers, coaches and volunteers to keep fields of any size safe and playable for the athletes using them,” said Jeff Langner, brand manager for Turface Athletics. “We want those customers who put Turface products to the test to share their story and be rewarded.”
