Mark Twain once said,
Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.
The Huntsman World Senior Games began in 1987 with a few hundred athletes, both men and women, who competed in a handful of games. In 2008, over 9,600 athletes aged 50 and over filled hotels in St. George, Utah, home to the games since their inception. In 2009, the games will include Shooting – Trap and Sporting Clays in the 26 “open” sports that will be part of this year’s games. Cowboy Action Shooting has been a part of the games since 2004.
The games will last for 2 weeks and will begin on October 6 at Hansen Stadium on the Dixie State College campus. For additional information on the Games or any of its events, visit the web at www.seniorgames.net or call the office at 800-562-1268.
