  • FIVE-RING NOTES

         A member of the USOC is scheduled to tour Ft. Worth today
    for "preliminary evaluation" of the area's worthiness to play
    host to an Olympic Festival.  The Dallas-Ft. Worth area is vying
    with Phoenix, Seattle and Richmond for one of the two Olympic
    Festivals held '97 and '99.  The USOC is expected to announce its
    sites on April 9 (Simon Gonzalez, FORT WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM,
    12/9)....The new head of the Int'l Yacht Racing Union says he is
    "seriously worried" about a lack of progress with the marina for
    Olympic Yachting and plans to decide by the end of next week if
    the '96 event should be moved.  But Savannah officials and ACOG
    officials said they were not worried (ATLANTA CONSTITUTION,
    12/9).
