Yp.Com presented The Challenger of Dallas, A USTA Pro Circuit Event, at the impressive T Bar M Racquet Club here in Dallas. I was invited out to the event to cover not only the semi-final matches but also to highlight the wonderful activities of the Dallas Tennis Association‘s National Junior Tennis and Learning (NJTL) program. Specifically the kids from the program were out and about for the Challenger and after the second semi-final’s conclusion, the kids got to experience the courts. O and a very special guest, Dirk Nowitzki, showed up!!!
On Saturday I spent my time at the Dallas Museum of Art for two specific events. The daytime event was the Dallas premiere of Comic Book Literacy, an award-winning documentary by North Texas filmmaker Todd Kent showcasing the use of the comic book medium for educational purposes. The night time event was an amazing experience as award-winning and New York Times Best-selling author Joyce Carol Oates spoke to a packed house. Both events took place at the Horchow Auditorium and I’d like to share with you the doubleheader at the DMA.
