Optimist Junior Golf: fun, rewarding, affordable!

2012 OPTIMIST champions
Marcella Pranovia and Joey Lane
Chris Hill, Chair, Optimist International Junior Golf Championships for the PNW District invites every club to get involved with the  OPTIMIST junior golf tournament this year. He sends the following message:

Dear Optimist Club Presidents,
We are continuing to build our PNW Optimist Junior Golf qualifier tournament.  This tournament allows local youth to compete for a place in the Optimist International Junior Golf Championships in Palm Beach Gardens Florida.   We are currently allowing only one participant in each age category to move on to the championships in Florida.
 
 I’d like to build our local qualifier tournament, currently held at Meriwether National Golf Course in Hillsboro Oregon, to at least 72 participants.  In years prior, we’ve had 35-45.  This is where I need your help.  I’d like to have on member from your club market our qualifier tournament to high schools in your community.   This would mean either emailing or dropping off a flyer to high school golf coaches.  In addition, if your club would like to sponsor a local boy or girl, you could pay for their entry fee into the Qualifier tournament ($75). 
 PNW Qualifier Tournament 
When:  June 20, 2013
Where:  Meriwether National Golf Course.  Hillsboro, OR
Registration:  https://sites.google.com/site/pnwusoptimistgolf
  
Contact:  Chris Hill ; 503-780-2570 
Due to the size and magnitude of the International competition, this opportunity could change the path of a young person.  Please consider selecting a volunteer to spread the word about our upcoming junior golf tournament.  Visit www.optimist.org/golf for more details on both the local qualifier and the International championships.  Thank you in advance. 
 Sincerely,
Chris Hill, PNW District Junior Golf Chairman
