Dear Occoneechee Scouting Volunteers,

I am very excited to announce that the Occoneechee Council has been provided the opportunity to staff a refreshment booth at the 2014 Men and Women’s U.S. Golf Open Championships located at Pinehurst, NC.   The Open is scheduled for Monday, June 9 – Sunday June 15 (Men’s) and for Tuesday, June 17 – Sunday, June 22 (Women’s). 

Each day, we will operate a 5:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. shift as well as a 12:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. shift.  We will be parked and shuttled from a volunteer parking area located near the tournament with regular shuttle service to and from our parking area.  Our volunteers who provide one-half day of service will be able to enjoy the tournament (at no charge) for the remainder of their day.

We extend to you the opportunity to join us as volunteer team member to serve in our refreshment booth.  I also ask that you consider serving as one of our team leaders and even bring a few of your friends to help us in this opportunity of service. Please use the following link to register or you may use the attached pdf form to sign up by emailing the completed form to

The slots will be filled on a first come, first serve basis, so the earlier you register to help the better the chances are that you will be scheduled on your requested times and dates.

Also if you know of anyone like friends, fellow adult Scouters, neighbors, church and civic club members that may enjoy helping the Scouts and having the opportunity to attend a half day of the US Open free of charge as well, please feel free to send them this invitation.    

 I know you will all want to join me in volunteering to take a shift (or two) at these events. Please do not hesitate to contact Rodger Skirvin our staff advisor for this event at 919-812-5832  if you have any additional questions.
