National Senior Games aggressively marketing its 2011 meet
The National Senior Games must really be hurting. They sent me this note today: “Congratulations on qualifying for the 2011 Summer National Senior Games presented by Humana! Online Registration is NOW OPEN for the Games which will be held in Houston, Texas June 16-30, 2011. You will also be receiving a registration packet in the mail. This packet will include forms you may use to register. However, please note there is an additional fee to register with these paper forms.” I qualified for the 100 and 200 by running (slowly) at last summer’s California Senior Games in Pasadena. If they want me for National Senior Olympics, they must be desperate. But the bigger issue is: Who will winâ€”Sacramento worlds, Cleveland nationals or Houston? Few will hit all three.
