Aussie Open calls for lo­cal help

Wangaratta Chronicle - - Front Page - By STEVE KELLY

FOR­GET about Nick Kyr­gios and Bernard Tomic at the Aus­tralian Open, when the ac­tion gets too hot on court head to the mist­ing fans sup­plied by Wan­garatta busi­ness OZmist.

Dean McDon­ald has this year pro­vided 40 OZmist fans for the tour­na­ment and at $4500 each it’s a good achieve­ment for a lo­cal busi­ness.

If you’re head­ing down to the Mel­bourne Park over the next two weeks also look out for two lo­ca­tions which have six lo­cally made mist arch­ways that the pub­lic can cool off in as re­lief from the hot sun.

“One of the or­gan­is­ers of the Aus­tralian Open got in touch with us af­ter an ex­tremely hot year about eight years ago and we got the con­tract to sup­ply the tour­na­ment with the fans,” he said.

“From there it’s just grown and it’s a sig­nif­i­cant part of our busi­ness.”

The Aus­tralian Open kicks off from Mon­day with top seeds in­clud­ing Roger Fed­erer go­ing for a hat trick of ti­tles and his sev­enth over­all, while in the women’s Ser­ena Wil­liams will be look­ing to up­set Caro­line Woz­ni­acki’s de­fence, to re­gain her supremacy over the event af­ter pulling out in 2018.

Mr McDon­ald re­cently re­lo­cated his OZmist busi­ness from Muntz Street to Rowan Street , in the for­mer premises which was home to Ray Wa­son Mo­tor­cy­cles.
