Hot Springs going all out as host of the Sun Belt Tournament

   Check out what's now running each day on the front page of the Hot Springs Sentinel Record. That's not the Sports page. That's the front page, above the fold, visible in all racks all over town.
   Having covered a number of Sun Belt Tournaments in a number of locations, I can never remember the host city going as far as they do in Hot Springs to promote this event.
   The director of the convention and visitors bureau was on local radio this week, talking up the tournament. And signs are starting to appear in town.
   Hot Springs also purchased a new court and had the Sun Belt logo painted on it. They'll use the old court in the alternate gymnasium at the Civic Center this year. That means no stickers on the floor. And no stickers means less slips and injuries.
   Props to Hot Springs.
