OSGA 55+ District 7A Seniors Summer Games Final Results

Marilyn Snedden

The summer games for District 7A are completed with 77 people competing in 13 different games. Many tried new games which is part of the goal of keeping seniors fit. Only one event was postponed due to rain so that was lucky this year. Thanks to all the conveners who worked hard to make it all possible. New this year was Washer Toss which proved a popular alternative to horseshoes since you throw silver discs to a bucket(not washing machines as someone thought!)

Now the Regional Games in Renfrew County on August 16 are the focus for the medal winners eligible to go. The local district gives a subsidy towards their mileage since some events are in Deep River as well as Pembroke.

At the Annual meeting on June 23 a committee was selected to meet with the three municipalities in our district(Beckwith, Carleton Place and Mississippi Mills) to begin plans for 2019 when our district hosts the Regional Games which will see hundreds of seniors from Eastern Ontario come to compete here. At the banquet following the meeting, representatives from the municipalities expressed interest in helping bring this event to or area.

Those competing in Pembroke will be paying close attention to the logistics of the games as a learning opportunity for 2019. Every second year the OSGA has province wide games which will be in Mississauga in 2018 and regional games are held on the other years.
