GNOSO - Greater New Orleans Senior Olympics

Your source of all the latest information pertaining to the Senior Games.  Any change in schedule, venue or personnel will be posted to this web-site as soon as the change is made.

GNOSO mourns the passing of Janey Witt-Perez and Wayne Perez's son Timothy.  Visitation for Timothy Ryan "Tim" Perez was at Garden of Memories, Thursday October 22 2015, from 4 to 6pm, followed by a short Celebration of Life.  Tim's Obituary was published Wednesday, October 21, 2015 in local newspapers; the on-line version is available by clicking this line.

Important Notice on Registration: On-Line Registration is available for 2016 Events.  The purple "Register Now" button found on each Event Page is a link to the On-Line Registration Process.  Once we are ready to start accepting Regisrations for the Games this link will be active and will remain active during the registration period.

Senior Olympians who are not comfortable with On-Line Registration may register using the familiar Paper Registration Form.  GNOSO's On-Line Registration process is easy, but there are some Senior Olympians who may not feel comfortable with computers or who may not have access to a computer.  Senior Olympians have the option to register with the familiar Paper Registration Form by mail if they call Ann Hassenboehler and request it, OR they may "download" a copy from this web-site (see LINK at left - under the Menu - for downloading the form).  Note that all information required for Paper Registration, will be entered into the same database with on-line registrants' information.

2014 ended on a Sad Note with the passing of TWO FINE Senior Olympians, Fred Eitmann and Jeanne Ellis.  2015 began with the passing of another FINE Senior Olympian, Mickey Hurley, who passed away on January 9, seventy years after he fought over European skies in World War II.  GNOSO dedicates this memorial to Senior Olympians who have passed on, via the link at left "In Memoriam."
