On the blizzard weekend of Jan. 22, three local area clubs, Plandome Country Club, Port Washington Yacht Club, and Manhasset Bay Yacht Club held their annual Cow Bay Invitational Platform Tennis Tournament, with the proceeds donated to two recognized charities benefiting the survivors of the tsunami disaster earlier in the month.

This annual member-guest "paddle" tournament of the three clubs was reformatted for completion in one day in anticipation of the storm forecasted for later in day. In fact, the final matches were conducted under very snowy conditions.
