Just a quick communication to wish all the athletes in the Senior Games Family a very happy Thanksgiving. We are very thankful for the commitment, dedication and achievements of California’s Senior Athletes.
A few updates:
Most of the dates for the 2016 Senior Games in California are now confirmed and will soon appear in the calendar listings to the left. We are still juggling a few dates and waiting for venue confirmations. In addition, we will be making a decision about holding a “second chance” qualifier sometime in late fall of 2016. As mentioned earlier, it depends on both venue confirmation and sponsor confirmation. So if you have ideas for potential sponsors, please send your suggestions with (contact info if you have it) to me at
We will be sending you a survey in the next month, please review and send back the information requested. Our demographic information is a bit out of date, and I want to update it – especially information about favorite sports, education level, computer use, employment status, buying choices, pet ownership, grandchildren, travel and other. This will help us continue to search for sponsors and increase our visibility.
Studies continue to prove that folks who exercise daily enjoy the benefits – you are all living proof of these studies who encourage everyone to exercise, train and find a sport they love! Regular exercise produces good health, great enthusiasm and positive attitudes – all contributing to “loving life.”
In the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing some stories of our California athletes –love your feedback and comments.. and if you have a candidate for a story, please send it to me at
We continue to search for new Board members for the CSGA. If you are interested in serving on the Board, please contact me at: We are especially interested in identifying and finding board and committee members in the areas of sponsorship, fundraising, political advocacy and visibility!
Finally, the California Facebook Challenge is still on. We have grown from to 350 in the last few months.. BUT we can do better.. We have over 15,000 California Senior Athletes on our mailing list.. Lets get to 1,000 “likes” by January 1! Go to www.facebook.com, and “like” the CSGA page. Thanks!
Thanks to all for your energy, enthusiasm and commitment to Sport!
Happy training, Happy Thanksgiving... and Enjoy the Games!
