2014 55+ Provincial Games
From July 8 to 10, Humboldt will be hosting the 2014 55+ Provincial Games. The games were hosted by Humboldt in 2004 and no doubt they will uphold their reputation of successful games. The events that will be offered are: five pin bowling, golf, contract bridge, duplicate bridge, cribbage, darts, Kaiser, swimming, scrabble, table tennis, whist, poetry & short story writing, bank shuffleboard, 8 ball, snooker, slo-pitch, track & field, bocce, pickle ball and ice curling (including stick curling). Tennis will be played in Saskatoon, lawn bowling in Regina and floor curling in Pierceland with dates to be determined.
Currently, since the District does not have a Committee structure to organize and deliver the district games, interested participants can go directly to the Provincial games without competition. Please refer to this website for the qualifications, rules and the number of participant allowed to enter. Click here for the Accommodation List.
