'Tips Announce 2nd Annual Alumni Weekend

Press Release

EVERETT – The Everett Silvertips are proud to announce plans for our second annual Alumni Weekend, where we invite players from the past ten seasons to join former teammates, fans, supporters and friends in Everett for a memorable weekend in Silvertip Country!  This year’s festivities center around an alumni golf outing on Saturday, July 13 at beautiful Kayak Point Golf Course.

The Silvertips’ 2013 Alumni Golf Tournament allows fans the opportunity to play one of the most scenic courses in Western Washington alongside a former Silvertips player.  Each foursome in the tournament will include at least one Silvertips alum, and in addition to green fee and cart rental, your entry includes a post-round dinner in the Kayak clubhouse.  You’ll also have the opportunity to win great Silvertips prizes as you catch up with some of your favorite players from years past, so you don’t have to be a scratch golfer to enjoy the event!

Individual entries are set at $100 per person for a great day at Kayak Point Golf Course.  Hole sponsorships are also available for just $200 including one green fee and $250 with two green fees.  Registration is now open and space in the tournament is limited to the first 80 golfers to sign up.  The tournament will begin with a 2:30 pm shotgun start on Saturday, July 13 and end with dinner after the round.

CLICK HERE to view our registration form.  Please return the completed form in person at the Silvertips office, via email at or via fax at 425-257-0700 to reserve your spot in our second annual Silvertips Alumni Golf Tournament!  Additional events may be added to the Alumni Weekend schedule at a later date.

Last August the Silvertips hosted our first-ever Alumni Weekend to mark the beginning of our 10th Anniversary celebration.  A total of 26 former Silvertips players attended the first event, many of whom were returning to Everett for the first time in years.  We hope to increase both player and fan turnout for this year’s golf outing to help establish Alumni Weekend as a yearly tradition in Silvertip Country!

Although our player lineup is subject to change at any time, the following players have already verbally committed to attend:  Mitch Love, Torrie Wheat, Barry Horman, Alex Leavitt, Ondrej Fiala, Taylor Ellington, Brennan Sonne, Shane Harper, Kellan Tochkin, Tyler Maxwell, Brennan Yadlowski, Josh Birkholz and Cody Fowlie, with many more yet to come!
