By the time you read this you'll probably be thinking of ways to burn off the extra poundage gained from the Turkeyfest, but I'm writing this just before Halloween and just after the ASLA Annual Meeting, held in LA. Yep, LASN was with a lot of LAs in LA . . . That meeting is always a great event for the profession, bringing together upwards of 400 exhibitors and thousands of Landscape Architects, designers, associates and students from across the country and around the world. This year I spoke with Landscape Architects and designers from China, Malaysia, Japan, New Zealand, Australia, Denmark, South Africa, India, Germany, England, Canada, France, Mexico and I'm sure a few more . . . Lots of conversations with lots of hand motions and shoulder shrugs, but almost all ended with a smile and a universal "Thank You" or Merci. The news from the ASLA meeting is almost all good. Lots of work. Cool projects coming down the pipe. New technologies making almost everything a little easier. Driverless cars, environmental awareness and it even looked like a solid group of students graduating in time to fill a few of the voids that are plaguing the entire construction industry. It's good to see so many students at the meeting: motivated, interested, concerned and ready to spring forward into the world of landscape. It's also great to see so many of the old timers and yesterday's up and comings who are now here and standing tall. It really is a great profession and I am thankful to be a small part of it . . . Thankfully Steering in the Right Direction George Schmok, Publisher God Bless . . . Utah State won the "Spirit" award inside the ASLA exhibit hall in Los Angeles thanks to their open-to-all steer roping contest. Nice throw . . . YeeHaa!!! PHOTO BY NATHAN SCHMOK
