Dear Senior Olympics Participant,
On behalf of the Western Illinois Senior Olympics planning committee, I would like to take this opportunity to announce that the 33nd annual Western Illinois Senior Olympics Games will be held Friday, April 26th and Saturday, April 27th, in Macomb, Illinois.
Over 100 seniors participated in the 2012 Senior Games and over 50 WIU students served as volunteers to help insure that the games ran smoothly. Our objectives for the games are to:
1. Provide you with the opportunity to test your skills in a competitive (yet friendly) arena that will reward you for your preparation and continued desire to lead a healthy lifestyle.
2. Encourage you to meet new people who have similar goals and interests in hopes of expanding your network of friends.
3. Showcase your talents before an audience of volunteers who will gain an appreciation for your commitment to lifelong activity and fitness. Please visit our web site at http://www.wiu.edu/seniorolympics/ to view our record book, get information about our 2013 games, and check out links to other State of Illinois games. Changes this year will include the addition of the hammer throw to the field events on Saturday and moving up the starting time of golf to 8:00am for 18-holes and 8:30am for nine holes on Friday.
If you have any questions about the 2013 Games or any information on our Web site, please contact me at MD-Lukkarinen@wiu.edu or (309) 298-1517.
We hope to see you in Macomb in 2013 for the Western Illinois Senior Olympics.
