Boeing Classic needs local volunteers
July 5, 2012
By Michele Mihalovich
After last year’s Boeing Classic golf tournament, 81,000 attendees bragged about watching some of golf’s greatest legends play at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge.
However, 1,018 volunteers boasted about driving those legends to the airport, or keeping score for tournament champion Mark Calcavecchia, or walking 18 holes inside the ropes with the likes of Fred Couples, Bernhard Langer and Mark O’Meara.
Michelle DeLancy, tournament director for the Boeing Classic, said the tournament utilizes 1,000 volunteers annually, and that there are still about 100 spots open.
Returning volunteers get first dibs on duties they’d like to help with, so she said anyone interested should register soon at www.BoeingClassic.com.
New volunteers pay $85, which gets them an official uniform.
Returning volunteers wear last year’s uniform, but pay $35.
All volunteers will receive additional benefits including meal vouchers, admission tickets, merchandise discounts, an invitation to the Volunteer Appreciation Party and preferred parking.
The 2012 Boeing Classic will be held Aug. 20-26 at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge.
Tickets start at $20 per day. Children younger than 14 accompanied by an adult will get in free.
People 60 and older will receive a half-price discount on general admission tickets. Weekly tickets are $60 and tournament tickets, good for the last three days, are $40.
Purchase your tickets at www.BoeingClassic.com or at the tournament’s admission gate.
