When the 11th annual National Senior Games get under way at the National Stadium on Saturday, April 21, there will be just as much action off the field as on the track.
The event, which is promoted as a family affair, will begin at 8:00 a.m. and run until 6:00 p.m. During that time there will be several track and field events, as well as tug-of-war, a spectators’ race and a children’s race.
Additionally, there will be a health tent, where blood sugar and cholesterol checks, blood pressure checks, and HIV/AIDS testing and counseling will be conducted.??????
There will be a jumping tent for children, a number of giveaways and an entertainment package. Music will be provided by DJ Sylk and Carl "Alf" Padmore will be master of ceremonies for the event.
Persons who plan to attend may purchase tickets from CS Pharmacy, Broad Street; Carlton Supermarket, Black Rock; Emerald City Supermarket, Six Roads; Fisherman’s Pub, Speightstown; Joe’s Pharmacy, Oistins; and Sports and Games, Barbados Limited, Corner of James and Roebuck Streets.
