At the 2012 John Deere Classic, a group of ladies retired from the media room at Deere Run. To take their place, a new group took over for the 2013 tournament.

Four women who are all retired from John Deere took over and have helped run a successful tournament.

“Very big shoes to fill and yes there’s a learning curve and we’re learning as we’re going,” said volunteer Joan Vannest. “We didn’t shut the place down or anything so I think it’s been going well.”
