Manulife Financial LPGA Classic 2012 Day 1

In January, I submitted an application to be a volunteer for this year's LPGA in Waterloo, Ontario. The course chosen is Grey Silo and it is situated in north Waterloo along the banks of the Grand River. This is the first time that the LPGA has come to this area and the community is ready and excited to be a part of the professional golf scene. I was very lucky to be placed on the Hospitality/Registration Committee. We met as a group in early May and plans were formed. I contacted Lilies White and they volunteered to have a beautiful floral arrangement  created for the clubhouse that will welcome the players as they arrive and register. I have no idea exactly what my job entails, but I hear that it is a learn as you go role! Today was set up day and I begin my job tomorrow morning with the registration of players as they arrive. The tournament starts Thursday June 21. There will be 144 golfers and some of the well known ladies are Paula Creamer USA, Lorie Kane CA, Michelle Wie USA, Stacy Lewis USA, Azahara Munoz Spain, Alena Sharp CA, Ai Miyozato Japan, and Cristie Kerr USA.
