The 21st renewal of the Northwest Louisiana District Senior Olympics begins open division activities Saturday, April 6, with its usual lid-lifter, the popular Bean Bag Baseball competition. A busy schedule of sports and games for those 50 years of age and over will follow over the next 48 days in and around Bossier City-Shreveport.
In announcing the schedule of events, District Coordinator Doyle Blasingame cited the support of Willis-Knighton Health System and Landers Dodge/Chrysler/Jeep as important to the success of the district games. “We welcome their support in our mission to improve quality of life and health for seniors through fitness and physical activity,” he said.
The district again will host the Senior Residence Communities Competition in Bean Bag Baseball (April 5) and Washer Pitch (April 12), both at Bellaire Fitness Center in Bossier City.
The district’s Opening Ceremony and Senior Health Fair will return to Horseshoe Casino’s Riverdome Tuesday, April 16.
