The event is held in Belmont, Michigan with parking at Rockford High School. My friend, Kitzie, and I got to the high school in time to pick up our passes and take what I thought would be school buses to Blythefield Country Club. Nope - they had air conditioned charter buses for all the spectators. So much nicer than a school bus!
We took the short ride to the course and had time to wander around for a bit before meeting up with my contacts, Annye and Katie. Right after entering the grounds, we saw these beauties! There was also a giant Kraft macaroni noodle :)

We were assigned to Kim Kaufman from South Dakota, Xi Yu Lin from China, and Ju Young Park of South Korea. As soon as we were escorted to the first tee, all three golfers came over and introduced themselves. Even their caddies were extremely friendly and welcoming. A professional photographer snapped pictures but I have no idea how to get copies of them. We didn't take any pictures with the athletes (yes - they are very much athletes and so are their caddies!) because once the round started they were all business.

Thank you Meijer, Kraft and the LPGA for a wonderful weekend!
