There’s lots to do in the coming months for Calgary 55 plus-ers. A total of 14 different activities will keep you busy from April through the end of June. See the full schedule here. Or check the Calendar.
Pre-register by phone with Garry Hunt (1-403-678-4932) or just show up at the Nordic Centre on March 12 and sign up by 10 a.m. with races to start at 11 a.m. All age groups – men and women.
The only cost is $7.50 for a Nordic Centre day pass which is good for the entire day. All participants must have a current (2014) Alberta 55 plus membership, however. Take your card as proof.
The 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.
We’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 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.
