Mature competitors across the province prove each year that the joy of sporting activity does not have to diminish with advancing years.
The B.C. Seniors games, from September 9-13 are the latest opportunity for seniors to take part in a richly rewarding athletic or otherwise competitive experience.
Listed below are the local residents (and their sports) who will make the trip to Langley next month:
John Lakes and
• Ice Hockey players
Ron Kassian and
• Ice curler
•Track & Field
Jeff Ginalias, and,
• Horseshoe player
“This’ll be my fifth year,” said hockey player Ron Kassian on August 6. “It’s great, really interesting. The first time I went I was amazed at the number of people, especially those over 65 and 70.”
Kassian feels the games are worthwhile to check out, for any age. They may be inspired to be more active.
“It would be good for anyone,” said Kassian, “to go and see just who’s competing.”
