Thanks to the Stanford 5K Run on November 6th for welcoming our Senior Runners. And thanks to the City of Palo Alto, College of San Mateo, City of Concord, and the City and County of San Francisco for allowing the Encore Games to use their venues!
We are especially thrilled to be able to use the brand new dedicated Pickleball Courts at Concord – and as of today, we have 150 Pickleball participants who will play on Saturday Nov. 19th & Sunday Nov. 20th!
Lots of people are coming together to ensure that California’s Senior Athletes have a second chance to qualify for the 2017 Summer National Senior Games!
Most of all…..Special thanks to our sports chairs who have been willing to take on extra roles to help our California athletes qualify for the Nationals in 2017.
Once the results are in, they will be sent to the NSGA for confirmation.
Congratulations to the athletes, thanks to all! Happy Thanksgiving.
