2017 Senior Games UPDATE!

On-Line Registration IS ACTIVE for the 2017 Games Registration - Please use the Menu Item at left - "Registration."  Then READ the Instructions on that Page Before you Register.

  • Athletes are encouraged to register "On-Line" for the 2017 Games using a "Register Now" button
  • As each registration deadline passes for any Event, that Event will no longer show on the ActiveNet page for On-Line GNOSO Registration.
  • USERS WHO REGISTER ON-LINE WILL RECEIVE E-MAIL CONFIRMATION of their REGISTRATION; they should also receive some form of receipt for payment, from their credit card company.
  • PLEASE READ the INSTRUCTIONS COMPLETELY before Registering On-Line.
  • VERY IMPORTANT  - if self-registering On-Line: Please ALLOW the System to accept and incorporate your typing.  As more and more people are Entered into the System, it may run a little SLOW.  ActiveWorks has been NOTIFIED and they are working this ISSUE,
  • ADDITIONAL SPECIAL NOTE:  On-Line Registration for an Event (Session) will CLOSE 3 Days BEFORE the Event (Session.)  Participants will still be able to register AT THE EVENT - via Paper; HOWEVER, since many of the Events require "Heat Sheets" which must be made up BEFORE the Event is conducted "Late Registrants" MUST notify the Coordinator at least the night before the Event.

NOTE: 2017 Senior GAMES REGISTRATION FORM is available for download - see link at left, below

2017 GAMES Commence in February, 2017

"Paper Registration Form" with Mail-in and Payment via Check will Continue to be a Registration Option in 2017, though Secondary

Athletes may continue to use the less-preferred Paper Entry Form Mail-in to Register.  This method, however, requires:

  • Previous-year Participants will receive a Paper form via US Mail
  • Or, Participants may "download" a Paper form from this web-site (using a clearly-identified LINK to "download" the form)

Athletes who register via the Paper Entry form receive neither confirmation nor a receipt for payment (GNOSO had over 910 Registrations in 2016; there simply is not enough time to manually respond individually; On-Line responses are automatic.)

IMPORTANT TO NOTE: Registration information, whether received from On-Line Registration or via  Mail-in, is entered into the ONE database that ActiveNetwork maintains on-line for GNOSO.  GNOSO does not have the resources to maintain two separate databases.

After the Event, and after they are Reported, RESULTS may be viewed by using the Main Menu Tab "Results - All."  (Use the Menu tab "Results - All."  This is done as a service to those athletes who prefer rapid "year-to-year" comparison of Results.  A SIMILAR approach to viewing PHOTOS is under consideration.




Thise GNOSO Web-Site is designed for easy access to all things GNOSO and the Senior Games.

All information on this Site is available through the MENU at left

Each MENU "bar" changes color from Gray - to Pink when "left-clicked."  Each bar LINKS to a specific source of information.  LINKS include a Calendar of Events for "at-a-glance" scheduling information.  Other LINKS take you to an "Event Page" for each Event offered in the Games.  There is also a LINK to the LSOG Rules Book which clarifies how to participate in GNOSO Competition, another LINK leads to a list of Event Coordinators for the Current Year,  There is a LINK to a common page for viewing all Event Results.  Several other LINKS lead to information that are helpful to a GNOSO Senior Athlete.

"Welcome to the world of information availability!"  Happy Browsing!
