Dallas Senior Games 2018
March 17, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - March 18, 2018 @ 9:00 pm UTC+6
After the disappointing cancellation of the College Station Sr. Games, you will be happy to know you have another chance to compete! Or, at least support those who are competing. These are a few pictures from last year’s event which was the first time recumbents had been invited to participate and, despite the cold and rainy weather, people had a great time. And, the weather encouraged people to gather in the Easy Street Hospitality Tent, making it a very popular place to be. Fun for us!
Registration has been extended until March 1, the idea being to give more recumbents a chance to register, so we hope you will!
This is the introduction it is given on the Dallas City Parks and Rec website:
The Dallas Park and Recreation Department, Senior Program Division, is excited to host the 2018 Dallas Senior Games. This event was last held in 2017 and we are thrilled to be bringing this competition back to Dallas! Senior Games is an opportunity for adults over the age of 50, of all ability levels, to compete in a variety of sports and games. This Olympics style fitness and leisure competition will be held March 15th – 24th [cycling events will be March 17-18]. Participants will be able to compete in 10 different competitive sports and over 30 different events. Participants will have the opportunity to advance to the state competition; however, 2018 is a qualifying year but Dallas Area games is not a qualifying location. San Antonio is the state qualifying site for Texas.
So, we will once again be bringing our Hospitality Tent with the grill and burgers, hot dogs, and other snacks, so come find us on Saturday. We will be there bright and early. Mike will also have his trusty tool kit and bike/trike stand for last minute repairs. Looking forward to it!
