BC Senior Games, Cowichan, August 24-27

  • May. 4, 2005 7:00 p.m.

Calling all island seniors, those over 55 years this year, you are invited to join the Island Team (isolation category) to participate in the BC Senior Games in Cowichan, August 24-27.
We are an isolated zone connected to the northwest region which means we can travel with them or go separately, but we need to know by May 15 who wants to attend. We have had someone attending for the last 2 years, with our team increasing in size yearly; we’ve even brought home some medals. These games are great and quite inspiring. Good competition and lots of fun and laughter at not too high a cost.
The sports categories are: archery, badminton, bridge, carpet bowling, cribbage, cycling, darts, floor curling, golf, horseshoes, ice curling, ice hockey, lawn bowling, one-act plays, slo-pitch, snooker, soccer, swimming, table tennis, tennis, track and field, whist, etc.
Estimated personal costs are expected to be: $10 for membership, $45 registration fee, ($35 for non-participants) Travel and accommodation are subsidized if you travel with the group. We can apply for some Gwaii Trust travel assistance.
If you are interested please contact me as soon as possible so we can finalize our team. Fran Fowler 559-4691, Box 166, QCC, ffowler@island.net
