TPC announces golf membership director

The Tournament Players Course (TPC) at Snoqualmie Ridge

announces the hire of John Garcia as the golf club's director of membership

and marketing. Garcia comes to TPC Snoqualmie Ridge with nearly

20 years of sports marketing experience, half of which are concentrated in golf.

In his new role at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge, Garcia will be responsible

for marketing and recruiting efforts, as well as acting as a point person

for current club members. Garcia will also be charged with ensuring the club

continues to provide its current and potential members with an unrivaled

private club experience.

"John's familiarity and experience with the golf market in this area,

combined with his innate skill and love for the game will certainly be a

valuable addition to the TPC Snoqualmie Ridge team," said Jeff Ducharme,

general manager of the club.

Prior to joining the TPC Snoqualmie Ridge, Garcia was

membership sales and marketing director for The Golf Club of Oklahoma

in Tulsa, Okla., and Bear Creek Country Club in Woodinville.

HUB and SVTC to hold track meets

Running, jumping and throwing are the purest forms of sport.

Children and adults enjoy a sense of physical well being and accomplishment

after friendly competition on a spring day.

The Snoqualmie Valley Track Club (SVTC) is once again offering

the "Allcomers" meets on five Sundays, starting in late April. The meets

will be held at either Chief Kanim Middle School or Mount Si High School

from 2 to 4 p.m.

Last year many of the eight to 14-year-old children became so

excited about track and field from the Allcomer Meets that they joined

the Junior Wildcat Track Club and competed with other youth in the

region. Some of the athletes even made it to the state level! It was a joy to see

them so proud of their accomplishments.

The groups of volunteers who run the program would like to see the

participation in the free meets grow this year. If you attended last year,

please come again and bring another family with you. There are family events,

as well as many races and field events for children starting at age three.

Even if you don't wish to compete, it's a real treat to see the faces of those

children as they try their hardest to race down that track and earn the blue ribbon.

The members of the SVTC are very excited to be in their second

year of operation and hope that many from the Valley will join them again.

They promise lots of exercise, ribbons and fun to share.
