Winter Fun Games wrap up with Alpine events

alpine21The Zone 3 Winter Fun Games concluded Feb. 13 with 29 participants representing four different zones competing for alpine glory. Skiers from Zones 2, 5 and 6 joined those from Zone 3 to contest the Slalom and Giant Slalom events at Nakiska. You’ll find all the results here.

Congratulations to everyone who took part in the Games – from the badminton courts to the ski hills and everything in between.

An easy way to get more active

uwalk-logo-on-dark copyWe’re told that we need 150 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity each week for good health. That may sound daunting, but according to the University of Alberta’s Faculty of Physical Education, we can get there 10 minutes at a time – with something as easy as walking.

And to help us achieve that goal, the Faculty developed UWALK, an on-line program, funded by the Government of Alberta, that “aims to help Albertans find their stride and support them moving forward.”

Saturday Dec. 14 – FOUR Fun Game events completed!

fun_games_curlingSaturday Dec. 14 was a busy, busy day for Calgary 55 plus-ers. Competitors were demonstrating their skills all over the City – Curlers at the Winter Club, Duplicate Bridge players at Thornview, Badminton players at the Glencoe Club and and Table Shuffleboarders at the Forest Lawn Legion.

A great time was had by all and dozens of medals were awarded – too many to list here – but you can find all the results here.
