While all athletes must be over the age of 50

-- and some can even be found who have crested the honourable age of 100(!) --

Seniors gather from all over Alaska, Canada, Hawaii and the Lower 48.

Many return year after year to enjoy friendly competition,

often amongst many different sports & regardless of athletic level.
