55+BC Senior Games
Two women’s teams from Marpole competed in the 55+BCGames hosted by North Vancouver August 25th to 29th, 2015. The Joanne Mick team (Charlotte Edwards, Pat Upper, Judy Santowski) won the silver medal in the 55+ Women’s event. The Laura Rampton team (Lu Petterson, Janice Robinson, Marian Dickens, Joan Barker) won the gold medal in the 65+ Women’s event. Curling was held at the Vancouver Curling Club.
3300 athletes competed in the 55+games in a multitude of sports and recreational activities. It was fun to be part of these games and meet seniors from around our province who are staying active and competing. The mission of the games is to improve the health, lifestyle and image of British Columbia’s 55+ population.
Many thanks to Joanne Mick who is the co-ordinator of curling for our area (Zone 4). Joanne would like to see Marpole teams enter the mixed and men’s events as well. The 2016 games will be held in Coquitlam September 20-24.
