Ken Ketel

Paula's Pool Committee
1st year Ambassador

Where are you from and how many years have you volunteered with the Wachovia Championship?
I’m from Rapid City, South Dakota and it was my first year volunteering at this tournament.

What characteristics about this tournament have brought you to volunteer?
I’ve volunteered at a couple senior tournaments and wanted to do a PGA event. Since my daughter lives near Charlotte this was the obvious one. I signed up last year but was too late to get selected, so I couldn’t miss this one. I had heard that it was a wonderfully well organized event.

What committee are you volunteering with? Can you explain your daily duties?
I worked with Paul’s Pool. I did everything from the Youth Area, to a little marshalling, to crowd control, to returning cell phones.

How many hours are you working as a volunteer this week?
I registered to work 20 hours. That stretched a little when there was a need, but the people I worked with made it a wonderful time.

What would be your advice to people thinking of volunteering in the future?
If anyone who enjoys working with people can make the time, it will be a great experience.

Thanks for the opportunity. You have a wonderful group of people doing a job which comes back to benefit the community. I certainly plan to be back next year.
