On Day 4 of the 2019 All Seniors Care Seniors Games we proved that golf is definitely NOT a Good Walk Spoiled! Play the game we did, it was truly a beautiful day on the links! With over 350 participants competing for medals, golfers showed off their best swings to enthusiastic audiences as Wii golfing tournaments were completed across the country. The crowds were on the edge of their seats as our finalists birdied their way to the medals. We’ve never had such an exciting year of golf as this year!

There were some “fan”tastic highlights today. At Edmonton’s Rutherford Heights, Gold Medalist Larry M. exclaimed: “It’s been a lot of years since I have been on a real golf course and I guarantee if I went today I wouldn’t get a score worthy of a gold medal!” Meanwhile over at Preston Park II, where husband and wife duo ties and both won a National Silver, Mary and Len H., exclaimed: “It is always fun competing against each other. We always have such great and friendly competition. However, this year we finished in a tie and both took home the gold!” It seemed many couples were competing today as witnessed at Stratford’s McCarthy Place where Husband and wife (Ken & Evelyn) had went head to head in shuffleboard, with lots of friendly banter that had the room in splitting laughter. Ken ended with a chuckle; “You sure know how to ruin a good marriage! And, just so you know, I didn’t throw the game honey, but as they say happy wife, happy life!” And during the medal presentation at Ottawa’s Beacon Heights, Gold Medalist Niki T. gave everyone some solid advice: ”You need to practice, practice, practice every time there’s a game on the weekly calendar, and go out and participate to win gold.”

Across the country hundreds of older adults will continue to take part in the Games during tomorrow’s final day of competition. Any and all spectators are welcome! Congratulations to all our medalists and participants for making Day 4 of the 2019 All Seniors Care Seniors Games was a swinging success. Caddies were not needed today, but our staff and volunteers were! Without them, the Games would not be possible, so a big thank you and congrats to all.

Schedule remaining for the week DAY 5 (February 8th, 2019):
Card & Board Games with Closing Ceremony Celebration – Round robin play in the morning with Finals in the afternoon followed by Medals Ceremonies and entertainment.
