        The tournament draws more than 6,400 players representing some 350 teams from around the world, and is the largest international showcase in the nation. The tournament over the Presidents’ Day Weekend is for players 14-19 years old.

        The City Council will also recognize the 25 graduates of the Citizens’ Academy of Planning. The participants attended 10 weeks of courses focusing on the history of planning, the permit process, historic preservation and website resources. The program is designed to give community members an overview of the planning process.

        Councilman Ricki Y. Barlow is also scheduled to recognize Mrs. Nevada-America Kristie Gulia-Jelinsky. The councilman will also recognize the local chapter of the Alpha Omega Fraternity for adopting a donation station meter. The meters are old parking meters used to help raise funds for the homeless.
