Central Albertans have been enjoying an especially mild and beautiful Indian Summer the last few weeks but soon winter will arrive and seniors interested in competing in the Alberta 55 plus Winter Games need to start gearing up for the event.

The zone playoffs for the Games to be held in Calgary Feb. 13 to 16 will be in full swing as of Nov. 1.

Entering any one of these events could qualify competitors to attend the Canada 55 plus Games in Strathcona County in 2014, said Rosella Snopek, zone 4 publicity director for the Games.

“We are really excited because the Canada 55 plus Games have been awarded to Alberta in 2014, for the first time since 1998 in Medicine Hat,” she said.

Alpine skiing, badminton, 5-pin bowling, duplicate bridge, carpet bowling, cross country skiing, darts, euchre, hockey, ice curling, pool snooker, scrabble and table shuffleboard are being offered for the winter games playoffs.
