Dance, friendly competition and fond memories were the story of the day across the country on Day 2 of the 2019 All Seniors Care Seniors Games with hundreds of athletes competing in various events at retirement communities across Canada. Wii Bowling and Archery competitors pushed themselves to achieve personal bests.
Following competition at Preston Park II in Saskatoon double Gold Medalist Norman R. exclaimed: “It sure feels good to be competing again this year at the All Seniors Care Games. The theme Dance, Dance, Dance has provided us with tons of laughs!” After receiving her medal, resident at Cedarcroft Place in Stratford, Vera A. yelled: “I’ve never seen so many turkeys, fourths, and fifths in bowling; it’s time to make up a happy dance”. While at Lewis Estates in Edmonton, Wii Bowling Silver Medalist Olive J. quietly observed: “Watch out all you men playing Billiards tomorrow – I’m bringing my A game!”
