Neighborhood Picnic a Big Success
Last night, the West Main Neighborhood held its annual picnic for players, guests, officials and volunteers of the tournament. As usual, the event was a big success. It was an evening of good food, music, raffles, and fun!
The picnic, which was sponsored by Prince, provides a great chance for everyone involved in the tournament to get together, kick back, relax, and have a little fun! The people who live in the West Main neighborhood, despite having to deal with congested traffic, road detours and noise during the ten days of the tournament, do a great job hosting the picnic and making visitors and volunteers of the tournament feel at home.
The highlight of the evening, besides the good food, are the great raffle drawings. Prince and many other local stores and restaurants donate many great prizes, ranging from tennis rackets to t-shirts, to free dinners! Add to this the freindly atmosphere and live music, and its easy to see why the neighborhood picnic has become such a favorite event to many involved with these Nationals.
