Submitted by Archie Stocker–The 4th Annual All Island Senior Winter Games were hosted by the Port Clements Senior Citizens Saturday in the community hall. All seniors over 50 were invited to participate and spectators were encouraged to attend.Free transportation was supplied thanks to the people of Masset House. Tables were set up for Cribbage, Scrabble, Yahtzee, Suduko, Mexican Train Dominos, and Uno baseball. Theme of the day was the Mad Hatters contest. A hilarious assortment of colourful, original, and comical headwear was paraded around the hall. One would have thought you had stepped into an early spring flower garden with all the blossoms adorning ladies’ hats. A hearty lunch was served from 12 noon until 1:30 pm, and refreshments were available all day long. The school gym was set up for Badminton (singles and doubles) and Carpet Bowling (teams of 2) also Ping Pong. Door prizes were won throughout the day. In the afternoon bingo was enjoyed in the Community Hall besides the other games going on. The upstairs firehall had dart competition and pool tournament. Gold and Silver medals were awarded to the winners of various competitions. It was a very busy and enjoyable event for all participants. Thanks to the organizers of this wonderful and successful 2008 Senior Winter Games.’ And congratulations to Queen Fran Fowler and King Alf Belyea!
