To Past 55+ Games Participants
Events Lunenburg County was awarded the 2017 NS 55+ Games and in turn established our committee, “The NS 55+ Games 2017 Lunenburg County.” Some of you may have seen us at the 2015 games gathering information and stealing, I mean borrowing all of their great ideas.
First things first, we must congratulate the NS 55+ 2015 Games New Glasgow/Pictou County for putting on a great event and the theme of Fun, Fitness and Friendship was evident everywhere that we went those three days. Spending those few days in Pictou County gave us great insight on what the games should look like and how they should be run.
September 13-16, 2017 Lunenburg County
Our goal is to spread the games throughout Lunenburg County. Below is a list of all the activities and sports that will be offered for the 2017 games. There is also a list of hotels available throughout the region. We do not have all of the details worked out but we wanted to give you a heads up on what information that we have to date.
The passive games will be held at the Best Western Plus in Cookville. Golf will be at the Sherwood Golf & Country Club outside of Chester. Hockey will be held at both the Lunenburg County Lifestyle Centre in Bridgewater and at Queens Place Emera Centre in Liverpool. Curling will be at the Bridgewater Curling Club.
We also wanted to give you our social media information so that you will be able to check on our progress over the next few months and keep up-to-date. Registration will start on April 3 and go until the end of July. Please watch (and share) our Facebook page or keep checking our website. We look forward to hosting you in Lunenburg County in 2017.

Every two years, the games are hosted in a region of Nova Scotia where up to 1,000 athletes come together to enjoy fun, fitness and friendship. If you like to participate in sports, activities or passive games, check out what will be happening in Lunenburg County in 2017 at www.2017ns55plusgames.ca
Right now, our local recreation departments are working to organize some Try-It activity sessions for seniors across Lunenburg County in anticipation of the upcoming games.
Some sessions to look forward to this October are: washer toss, darts, 8-ball, shuffleboard, mountain biking, archery and horseshoes. They will also be offering duplicate bridge, auction 45s, cribbage and scrabble. Many seniors enjoy curling and a Learn to Curl and a stick curling session will be held at the Chester Curling Club in the fall.
The 2017 committee is working on finalizing the list of 26 events, but a sneak preview can be found on Facebook site (search for NS 55+ Games 2017). If you are interested in participating or want to get involved as a volunteer, keep an eye on the website or send a message on Facebook. The 2017 games are brought to us by Events Lunenburg County.
