The local Winter Games brochures are presently available at local Legions and Recreation centers. This year we have the most interest in 10 pin bowling and Nordic Skiing but if enough people sign up ,we can offer curling(mixed), duplicate bridge and skating as well. Contact Guy Chaput at 613 253-2784 if you are over 55 years old and want to participate.
The Nordic Skiing will take place on Jan.30 at the farm of Bernie & Winona Duffen (613 283-7790) with a 5 km prediction run and Men’s & Women’s times trials(5 Km). Guy will soon know the bowling date.
Winners are eligible to attend the Ontario55+ Winter Games in Coburg on Feb.21-23,2017.
However we are also planning the brochures for this summer’s games since the Ontario Games are in the Midland Area from Aug 9-11,2016. Local games will be held in May & June to determine winners to attend this huge event. The local district sends a bus and subsidized our competitors. Several fund raising events and a raffle will support this.
The first event, organized by Debby Hayes and Carole Pascoe, is a combination Euchre and Bid Euchre party on Friday, Feb.5 at 7 pm at the Carleton Place Legion. A light lunch and lots of fun for $5 so come out and support our seniors.
