Join us Thursday, September 9th, 2021 starting at 5:00 pm for the 5th Annual Billings Chapter Field Day. Field Day will be held at River Ridge Landscape Company, 3223 River Road, Laurel, MT.
What IS Field Day? It's an opportunity for the MNLA Billings Chapter to say "thank you" to the vendors who have supported us at all of our activities this year. We provide a space for vendors to set up exhibits and anything they would like to share with the Chapter Members. It's a fun-filled night, where you explore new products and talk to your vendors and customers while enjoying a dinner (on us) along the beautiful banks of the Yellowstone River.
This year we're trying something new - the annual Field Day will be combined with our Fall Tour Kick-Off Dinner! What's that mean? Everyone who has registered for the Fall Tour will join us at Field Day. This will be a great opportunity to network and catch up with MNLA members from around the state. As always, you will be able to visit vendor booths to test drive equipment, demo mowers, see the latest irrigation equipment and more. Enjoy a BBQ Dinner, Served from 5:30 - 6:30 pm, then have a little fun testing out equipment and visiting with vendors in their outdoor booths.
Which vendors will be there? We're still working on this year's list, but here's a list of those who joined us last year:
Bobcat of Big Sky
Ditch Witch West
John Spray Landscapes
Rocky Mountain Compost
Vermeer Rocky Mountain
