DEADLINE April 12!
We are very pleased this year to help organize the Columbus BOOMER Games This is a pilot event to bring the N.C. Senior Games to our county in 2014.
What are the BOOMER
Games? They are fun, they're a little challenging, and even more fun!
For example, look at the lists below. Wonder what spincasting is? We give you a rod and reel and you cast the line and try to make the weight land in a circle. Easy!
ACTIVITIES: CORN HOLE • HORSE SHOES • BASKETBALL TOSS • 5K RUN • FOOTBALL TOSS • SPINCASTING • CYCLING • FUN WALK • GOLF • SOFTBALL THROW • BOWLING
ARTS: PAINTING • DRAWING • QUILTING • SCULPTURE • POTTERY • PHOTOGRAPHY • BASKETS • JEWELRY • WOODWORKING • WRITING • STAINED GLASS • NEEDLE CRAFT
Speaking of fun, we hope you will join us, even if you don't really want to compete. When you sign up, you show support for fitness in Columbus County!
Visit www.Columbusco.org for information and an entry form, or use these direct links:
Speaking of competing, let me clue you in on a little secret: You will compete in the activities against only people near your age and gender, so a 77 year old woman will compete against only women ages 75-79.
And we will award first, second and third place for all events! (All this is for the activities only, and not the arts.)
The events are in late April, with the BIG day of games on April 24. (Golf, bowling, cycling and the 5K run will be earlier.)
So please, download the application pdf, fill and print it out, sign it with a check for $12 (plus fees for golf or bowling if you like) stuff it all in an envelope and mail it in. The Deadline is April 12, so you don't have much time!
It is very important that people show BOOMER support so we can bring the official N.C. Senior Games here. Our seniors deserve this!
Yours in fitness,
