In honor and appreciation of the men and women who actively serve and have served the United States of America in the Armed Forces, Waste Management Phoenix Open tournament host’s the Thunderbirds will open a new venue exclusively for these military heroes at the 2013 tournament, called the Birdies for the Brave Patriots’ Outpost.
In addition to opening the Birdies for the Brave Patriots’ Outpost, the Thunderbirds also invite all active, reserve and military retirees and one accompanied guest to be their guests, free of charge, every day at the 2013 Waste Management Phoenix Open. The tournament will again allow children 17 and under into the tournament free of charge, when accompanied by a parent or guardian.
To take advantage of the free admission offer:
- Eligible personnel must present their official military ID or badge at any ticket booth at the main tournament entrance.
- Business cards and pay stubs will not be accepted as forms of ID.
- Tickets are limited to two per day, per each official military ID.
- Standard tournament spectator policies will be in enforced, including no firearms allowed.
Once in the tournament, all active, reserve and military retirees and their guests are invited to visit the Birdies for the Brave Patriots’ Outpost. Located near the 18th tee box, the Patriots’ Outpost will be a comfortable place for our heroes and their guests to relax, grab a bite to eat and enjoy a cold or warm beverage (free of charge) while at the WM Phoenix Open.
To help keep the Birdies for the Brave Patriots’ Outpost exclusively for military heroes, official military IDs will again need to be shown to gain access to the Patriots’ Outpost. Sponsored by PRO EM Party and Event Rentals, Michael’s Catering, Shamrock Foods and T&B Equipment, the Patriots’ Outpost promises to be a fun and worthy addition to the 2013 Waste Management Phoenix Open. The Birdies for the Brave Patriots’ Outpost will be open Wednesday, January 30th – Sunday, February 3rd.
“The Patriots’ Outpost is a complimentary hospitality tent for all active duty, reserve and retired military from all five branches of the Armed Forces and their families to enjoy Wednesday through Sunday at the Waste Management Phoenix Open,” said 2013 Waste Management Phoenix Open Tournament Chairman Tom Altieri. “We cannot thank the men and women who serve this great country enough for all they do. On behalf of the Thunderbirds and Waste Management, we thank you for your service to our country. Please enjoy the tournament on us.”
This is the 12th year the Thunderbirds have extended this free admission offer to military personnel and the first year for the Birdies for the Brave Patriots’ Outpost.
