What is a Trailblazer
Trailblazers are the 5th teammate for the Scramble and are paired with hard to obtain Team Prizes. Trailblazer / Prize are selected by team captains in order of team funds raised. Trailblazers are here to be recognized for personal and/or professional contributions to our Northwest Community and to help us draw support for Northwest Youth Services and Engedi Refuge who are doing groundbreaking community work. As most of our golf teams are comprised of people in the business community this is also a great opportunity to learn more about one another and see how you, your businesses and activities connect and support one another. 
If you are coming from out of town, great to arrive on Wednesday, September 4th.  Hotel Bellwether is holding a block of rooms for Sept. 4th and 5th for BGC participants and they ask that those interested book a room soon as possible as they are in high season. 360-392-3100, mention the group block rate for the Birch Golf Classic.
