• Volunteers Needed:
On May 23rd St. Cats will be hosting golf regionals at Ives Grove and needs volunteers. I am in need of 5 individuals to be out on the course monitoring pace of play. Every 3 holes an individual will be stationed monitoring pace of play. If a group would fall off pace you would let me know so we could send someone out to warn the group and follow them to get them back on pace. I would have all materials and directions for you so you know if a group is off pace. I am also in need of 3 individuals as fore caddies on holes that have blind tee shots. Essentially you would stand/sit in the middle of the hole and inform the group on the tee box when it is safe for them to hit. Golf on that day starts at 9:00am and should be concluded by 3:00, however you would not need to be there the entire day. There would be approximately 2-hour shifts that you would be scheduled for, which I would know closer to the day. If you are willing to help out on that day, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your consideration
