Chris, This is the largest gathering of Senior Athletes in the state and is FUN for everyone!

Craig, 50 is the magic year to sign up for the events and hope you do sign up. I will qualify for next year's events. Now to find something to sign up for!

Tom, Southern Utah has much to offer anyone who visits and the competitive sports venues are tops!

Ed, There are athletes who are in their 80s and 80s who participate. A nap sounds good about now!

Kenneth, These athletes do it all and do it quite well. Not sure I could compete with most of them!

Will, There are plenty of venues. I will volunteer this year and compete next year.
