A Little Friendly Competition: Louisville’s 50-and-over Games

by Marilyn Minnick

Louisville’s 50-and-over Games are scheduled May 8-21, 2006, at Metro Parks venues throughout the city. Early registration ends May 1, but you can sign up for most events prior to competing. After May 1 the registration fee is $25 for any and all events. Your registration fee also includes:

  1. Opening Ceremony on Thursday, May 11, 6 p.m. at Atria, 3451 S. Hurstbourne Parkway.
  2. Athletes Social, with packet pick-up, free t-shirt and free Bats game at Slugger Field on Tuesday, May 16, at 6 p.m.
  3. Banquet Ceremony on Sunday, May 21, at 6 p.m. with free dinner for medalists.

Cycling competitions will take place at Shawnee Park on Sunday, May 21, at 9 a.m. Events offered this year are 5K, 10K, and 20K time trials. Riders should check in 30 minutes prior to the start of the event.

If cycling is not your event, you can kick up your heels and join the ballroom dancers. Try your hand at billiards. Archery might be a new interest for you. There are 20 different sports featured at the games this year.

You can find information about these events and all others by calling 502-456-8186, visit a Metro Parks community center, or go online at www.metro-parks.org.

Spread the word, tell a friend, and support our community games. Who knows, you might win a medal and have a great story to tell your children or grandchildren.
