GREAT NUMBERS FOR LAST YEAR'S GREATER HARTFORD OPEN

          Despite "several adverse factors," last year's Canon
     Greater Hartford Open (GHO) "netted" $1.59M, the second
     largest profit for the Greater Hartford Jaycees in the
     tournament's 46-year history, according to Bruce Berlet of
     the HARTFORD COURANT.  Bad weather curtailed attendance and
     "several significant investments" were made in the
     tournament, including a new manual leaderboard, along with
     new bleachers, landscaping and electrical work.  The event's
     four-day attendance "matched" the second-highest ever,
     behind 310,000 in '94 (HARTFORD COURANT, 2/26).
