The hosts of the California Spring Trials met recently at 2010 OFA Short Course in Columbus, Ohio, and have revised dates for the 2011 California Spring Trials.
The new dates are March 26 through April 1. Individual locations may choose to extend those dates on either side to accommodate additional visitors but those seven days make up the core of the event. Please contact trial hosts or check websites to find specific dates for each trial stop.
“Because spring is spring –- busy for everyone – it can be a challenge to set the dates. We take into consideration other industry events, the selling season across the levels, the number of hosts and the sheer size of California, and, of course, the best time to grow quality plant material that truly represents its potential. Visitors can be assured our mission is to choose dates that can work for all,” explains John Gaydos, Director of Product Development and Promotion, Proven Winners North America.
California Spring Trials organizers also decided that due to the changing needs of attendees and trial hosts, the dates for Spring Trials from 2012 onwards will be agreed upon annually during the OFA Short Course.
