Friends, Athletes, Welcome back

We have taken steps to improve the event, eliminating some sports that have shown decline in participation, includingBasketball and Bowling, and increased staffing, organization, and time for events that have grown and flourished such as Pickelball and Volleyball. Our tried and true sports Tennis, Track & Field, and Swimming will run largely the same as usual.  Table Tennis will still be offered at this time and we hope to grow our 5K and Cycling events this year. Finally, by popular demand we will offer FREE Fitness Testing to all participants Saturday, May 3rd from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Magg's room 206.

To honor our accomplished athletes and in the spirit of camaraderie of the games we will again hold our Athlete of the Year Awards Ceremony. Athletes can nominate themselves or each other. Family and friends are also encouraged to nominate the athletes they support. Nominees that our panel finds to have shown the most athletic ability, dedication, and community support will receive recognition in the form of an award and an opportunity to speak to the audience. Light snacks and refreshments will be served. The ceremony takes place in the Perdue School Lobby, across from Magg's Gym, on  Friday, May 2nd (4 - 6 p.m). All participants are invited to attend the ceremony, which will be casual.  Please RSVP indicating the number of guests upon registration. 

Ready, Set, Go!

Brochures are in the design and print phase and will be mailed out the first week of March. In the meantime, all information and schedules can be found here, on the web.
