SAND, A COMMON THEME

It isn't "Baywatch," but it will have to do as HarborView Marina and Yacht Club plays host to the Nestea Open, a Miller Lite/Association of Volleyball Professional Beach Volleyball Tournament this weekend.

The tournament will feature women competing from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. today and men and women from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. tomorrow. The women's championship game will be played at 12:30 p.m. Sunday, with the men's championship at 3:30 p.m.

Admission today is free. Reserved tickets for tomorrow are $10- $20 and $15-$45 Sunday. General admission is $5 for tomorrow and Sunday. For ticket reservations, call (800) 793-TOUR.

* If you want to get more sand in your shoes, stop by the Harborplace Amphitheatre at noon tomorrow for the sixth annual CitySand sculpture competition.

Many architects, artists, designers, landscapers and design professionals will wade into 100 cubic feet of sand armed with shovels, hand tools, water and their imaginations to create their works of art.

It may be a ball park, or a monster gobbling a large structure, a prominent person reading the paper, or maybe even a castle. The deadline is 4 p.m., when the best will be chosen.

On Sunday, the creations will be destroyed at noon by children 4 to 12 years old. Then they will create their own works until 4 p.m. Downtown's 17th annual Farmers' Market reopens Sunday at Holliday and Saratoga streets, under the Jones Falls Expressway, a few blocks north of the Inner Harbor. The market is open from 8 a.m. until sellout every Sunday through Dec. 18.

The market features fresh fruits and vegetables, breads, preserves, pastries and flowers. Also to be noted are pit beef and coffee.

ODDS 'N' ENDS

City students in grades 1 through 12 with a report card showing three or more A's in one marking period for the year are invited to visit the National Aquarium in Baltimore free from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. June 30.

* The Maryland Science Center will close at 3 p.m. tomorrow to prepare for its annual fund-raising gala, "Summer Solstice at the Science Center."
