20th Annual District Senior Olympics

The Northwest Louisiana District Senior Olympics hosts many, many events for seniors who will be 50 years of age by December 31, 2012.  One of those many events is the golfing competition which will take place on Friday, April 20th at Northwood Country Club.  All the events are open to men and women and there are numerous divisions in each event.  Just as in the Regular Olympics, winners receive Golf, Silver and Bronze Medals.  In addition, if certain scores are posted, participants can become eligible for the State Competition in Baton Rouge, which leads to the National Competition.

To participate in the NWLA District events, you must pay a $15 General Entry Fee which allows you to participate in as many events as you choose, some of which have additional costs attached.  One of those is the golfing event, which requires an additional $35 fee.  The General Entry Fee gets you a 2012 Senior Olympics Tee shirt as well as various other "goodies" depending on the events you choose.  The golfing event also includes a really nice luncheon and awards ceremony.

The deadline for most events is April 13.  To get much more information and an entry form, go to the NWLA Senior Olympics site and download the information.  Sign up and have lots of fun!
