The American Darters Association had the opportunity to participate in the Missouri Senior Games again this year. This also makes the 10th year anniversary that the ADA has helped the Senior State Games. The Missouri State Senior Games is an Olympic-style sports festival for individuals age 50 and over. The event was held June 10, 11 & 12 in Columbia, Missouri at the Hearnes Center.
This is an annual event provides physical fitness to seniors in the area and also creates an social event that is challenging, competitive, shows their athletic and recreational ability and is fun! The ADA is honored to have a relationship with the National Senior Games Association and to participate in this event every year.
Seniors interested in the electronic dart event had to preregister and attend the competition June 11th from 9am to 12pm. This year, Lincoln County ADA Rep Steve Wilson accompanied ADA Vice President Karl Remick with the event.
There were two age divisions for the dart event and it was also further separated into gender categories. Participants’ ages 50 – 59 and 60 plus had the chance to win t-shirts and have their picture taken with the ADA Vice President. Congratulations to 1st place Dennis Squires and Jack Skilling who are shown in the pictures below. Also congratulation goes out to Lois Vollmer, Freddie Walker and William “You can’t beat a cannon” Cannon who are not pictured below.
Thank you to National Senior Games Association and to Missouri State Senior Games for another successful year! For more information about this event or our organization please visit our website at www.adadarters.com
