Hospitality 'world-class'

  • Follow Letters

Our family had a first-time-ever experience of winning the opportunity to acquire tickets to Wednesday’s practice round at the 2013 Masters Tournament!

What an adventure! We met in Atlanta and spent a few days touring parts of Georgia and South Carolina. At noon April 8, while enjoying a sidewalk lunch on your Broad Street, I admitted to the other three family members that I couldn’t remember getting tickets, and this event surely was too large for everyone to approach a will-call window. We found the Augusta Visitor Center in the downtown history museum, and a true angel, Toni Seals-Johnson, took us under her wing, called the Masters office, confirmed our identities and that we truly had tickets purchased. On Wednesday, we walked into a full day of splendor and oohs and ahs at the Augusta National Golf Club.

Your entire city and area offered world-class hospitality. You bet we’re hoping to return – soon and often. Thanks for the memories.

Such a pleasant LTE

Again, both of the previous comments "hit-the-nail-on-the-head !"

In another LTE I stated the Ohioins should come here to live. I guess I should have said all northerners.

Compared to Sioux Falls, SD, Broad Street is Rodeo Drive.

GiantsAllday hasn't been there

It's obvious, GiantsAllDay hasn't visited Broad Street, Rodeo Drive, and Sioux Falls. If he/she had, couldn't have made the above comment.

Broad St. is Broad St. If

Broad St. is Broad St. If you haven't been lately, you should go down and stay a spell? There are things to see and people to chat with, places to sip a coldie, to eat, read, shop, etc.

Now commence with the prototypical hater-comments.

Wait, you mean out-of-towners

Wait, you mean out-of-towners went to historic Broad Street instead of the box store strip malls of Evans? Huh.
