When it comes to Mid-March in the area, it’s time for the New York State Public High School Boys Basketball Championships at the Glens Falls Civic Center. The reason that the tournament is so successful is the people of the Tri-County area. They get it. When a team comes to the area, they are treated like a professional team. First class all the way. The hospitality that the athletes are shown can only happen in a city like Glens Falls. Big time event in a small city. The organizers understand this. The hotels, restaurants and stores understand this. The residents understand this. It’s not by accident. It is who we are at our best. Whether you go to the Civic Center or not this weekend, all of us will have an impact on the visitors to our region. Treating the athletes like the big time, without big timing them. It’s good to be from here.
