55+ Eastern Regional Games

Plans are falling into place for District 8 (Stormont, Dundas, Glengarry, Prescott-Russell and Akwesasne) to host the 55+ Eastern Regional games on Tuesday, August 20th, in Cornwall and area.

Games chair George Baker, said “preparations are nearing completion to host a total of 12 games comprising bid euchre, cribbage, contract bridge, darts, euchre, floor shuffleboard, golf, 5-pin bowling, carpet bowling, tennis, pickleball and prediction walking.”

The Eastern Region of the Ontario Senior Games Association comprises seven districts stretching from the Québec border in the east to Kingston and Frontenac, and Renfrew in the west. Its northern and southern borders are the Ottawa and St. Lawrence rivers respectively.

Over 400 participants from the eastern region are registered for the games, said Baker. Additionally, 68 people are involved as convenors, non-participants, volunteers and officials. The most popular game is bowling, singles and team, whose participants number close to 100. Following bowling are golf with 45 players and floor shuffleboard with 41 players.

District 8 has the distinction of fielding three teams in men’s doubles tennis in the 75+ age category.

The day ends with a closing banquet at the Cornwall Civic Complex. During the banquet, the participants will be entertained by a slide show of the day’s activities and by Glengarry’s Celtic musical group, the Brigadoons.
