Welcome Home Regional Champions! – CK Senior Games

We are the Ontario Senior Games Association (OSGA), Chatham-Kent District 33A… and so far 2019 has been FILLED with plenty of activities for hundreds of 55+ seniors.

Earlier this year, CK 55+ Senior Games members sent a number of participants to Huntsville. They competed and enjoyed the “fun, fitness, and friendship” of the ONTARIO PROVINCIAL WINTER GAMES and Gold Medal Winners are now being offered a chance to compete at the CANADA 55+ GAMES in Kamloops B.C. (August 25 to 28, 2020).

Locally, Spring/Summer 2019 witnessed another full schedule of locally organized activities that took place through April, May, and June, and hundreds of participants enjoyed gaming at locations all across our Municipality. OSGA Members (and their non-participant friends and/or family members) then turned their attention to the 2019 SOUTHWEST REGIONAL GAMES hosted this year by Bruce and Grey County.

On August 14, 32 people from 33A attended sites all across Bruce Grey County to compete in a number of scheduled activities (cribbage, contract bridge, golf, floor shuffleboard, prediction walking, carpet bowling, and tennis). Everyone from these games (and others that were offered) met for a dinner and awards ceremony at the Mildmay-Carrick Recreation Complex. And while we “welcome home” all our attendees, we wish to provide a special shout out to our own 33A District Award Winners.
