  • EVENT & ATTRACTION NOTES

              The Nike Tour, "unable to attract enough corporate
         sponsors," will not return to Philadelphia in '98.  The
         tournaments were operated locally by Allegheny Health,
         Education & Research Foundation (AHERF).  AHERF Exec Dir
         Mary Ann Saleski: "It was a hard sell in a major city with a
         lot of other professional sports.  The sense is that the
         Nike Tour is a good thing in a smaller market" (PHILA.
         INQUIRER, 12/4)....The '98 Senior PGA Tour schedule will
         stop in the Baltimore/DC area, as the State Farm Senior
         Classic will be played June 29-July 5 at Hobbit's Glen Golf
         Club in Columbia, MD (Senior PGA)....The NCAA women's soccer
         Final Four this weekend is sold out, with crowds of 9,025
