I trust everyone had an enjoyable Christmas and that you are ready to party on New Yer’s Eve. When you awaken on January 1, you might have personal fitness as one of your resolutions. What better way to get fit than to register for the Heartland Games For Active Adults.
Those wishing to take part in Track and Field or Racquetball need to have their registration form and payment into South Florida State College by January 9th. Track and Field (Jan 23 at Avon Park H.S.) includes long jump, high jump, shot put and discus as well as 100, 200, 400, 800 and 1500 meter runs plus a 5K. Tennis and Pickleball players might like to give Racquetball a try (Jan 26 at Gold’s Gym). Protective eyewear and a safety strap on the racquet are mandatory.
Those planning to compete in Tennis (Feb 16, 17, 18 at the Country Club of Sebring), Cycling (Feb 20 at Sun n Lake) or Bowling (Feb 22 & 23 at Heartland Bowl) should plan to have their registration packages in by early February.
If you won’t be competing until March, don’t delay, get your registration form filled out early and send it off to the College at least two weeks before your first event. March will be busy with Indoor Volleyball (Mar 4 at SFSC), Golf (Mar 5 at Pinecrest G.C.), Bridge (Mar 11 at Tanglewood), Pickleball (Mar 12 & 13 at Sun n Lake), Euchre (Mar 18 at Tanglewood), Shuffleboard (Mar 21 & 22 at Reflections on Silver Lake), Swimming (Mar 22 at Sebring Y.M.C.A.) and Tai Chi (Mar 29 at Tanglewood).
Remember that it only costs $15 to take part in one event. For just $10 more, you can participate in as many events as you want.There will be a $5 per day surcharge for Bowling and a $20 Greens fee for golf, payable at the venue on the day of the event. Each participant will receive a dri-fit shirt. Medals will be awarded to men and women for first, second and third place in each age category 50-54 up to 90+.
A light lunch will be provided at tennis, bridge, pickleball, euchre and shuffleboard compliments of our sponsors: Alan Holmes/Edward Jones, Newsom Eye, Florida Hospital, Legacy Bicycles, Turner Furniture and Drs. Thakkar & Patel.
When completing your registration form please include your e-mail address to allow us to send confirmation of your participation. If a partner is required for your event be certain to record her or his name.
