The Los Alamos Senior Games are coming, just in time to clear away those last traces of cabin fever.
Residents who are 50 and older are invited to sign up at the Los Alamos Family YMCA. Registration, which is $20, starts today and goes through March 31.
This year’s games will be April 13-May 15. A full schedule of games and events will be included on the registration form.
Sports will include golf, horseshoes, pickleball, track events, cycling, dance, badminton, airgun, cycling, bowling, disc golf, field events, frisbee accuracy and distance, huachas, racewalking, racquetball, roadracing, soccer ball kicking, softball throwing, shuffleboard, table tennis, regular tennis and a triathalon.
Most of the events will take place in Los Alamos County. Sites include the Los Alamos Family YMCA, the Betty Ehart Center, the athletic fields of the county’s schools and Sullivan Field. The only event held outside the county will be the bowling competition, which will be held in Española at Big Rock Bowling.
“We have a motto, and that is, ‘If you’re 50 plus, come play with us,’” Assistant Coordinator Ann ReVelle said.
ReVelle, and Los Alamos Senior Olympics Coordinator Cy Jakubowski, want as many residents 50 years and older coming out to enjoy the games.
