  1. Hint to the local sports media. If you want Charlotte to be considered a “Sports” town, you promote the hell out of any NCAA event you get. These athletes are just as dedicated, if not more, than those who participate at Division ! schools. Do not know if any competitors will be from my alma mater, University of Indianapolis, but I will all the competitors congratulations and good luck in their quest.
