To the editor:
I volunteered on Sunday the 18th at the Olympic Arena. My job was to ask parents and coaches to complete a survey about their experiences with the Can-Am tournament and their stay in the village.
I commented that we welcome suggestions to make it better for next year. With the exception of the wish that Crowne Plaza provide some sort of motorized assistance with the huge duffel bags going up and down the hill, our visitors were very complimentary and enthusiastic.
Comments like "fantastic tournament," "Everyone was very helpful," "lots of fun," "beautiful area" and "We want to come back" kept coming my way.
Many of the visitors were from our coastal areas. They were so happy to get away from Sandy's devastation. One little girl told me she just did not want to go home at all.
Congratulations, organizers and all the folks involved. The people I talked with want to come again and again. That is a high compliment.
