All of the public vol-unteer positions for the championship event were filled in less than one month…establish-ing a new record for the tour. If you were planning to be a volunteer at the event over the Memorial Day holiday next year at the Golf Club at Harbor Shores, there are still two options for you. One, you can get onto a wait list to replace anybody who ends up being unable to fulfill their agreed to obligation next year. The other is through 100 available Scholarship Volunteer positions through the Consortium for Community Development. Those scholarships are available to local resi-dents who want to participate, but are unable to cover the volunteer fee. If you are a par-ticipant in, or sponsored by, a partner agency, and can demonstrate financial need, you are welcome to apply for first-come, first-served opportunities. You may call the Consortium at 277-5500 or stop by their offices at 88 W. Main Street in downtown Benton Harbor. Incidentally, with the speed that volunteer slots were taken, it is anticipated that tickets will go just as fast. You can pre-register today for ticket information at www.spga2012.com. Tickets will officially go on sale in the fall to those that have registered. Good luck!
