Greater New Orleans Senior Olympics

Let's not forget the somber relevance of Memorial Day as we rush off to our vacations and have our traditional "cook-outs."  GNOSO Cyclist Frank Coangelo was thoughtful enough to share a powerful tribute to fallen heroes. Although this poem had already posted - as a footnote of sorts to honor Mickey Hurley (Menu link, "in Memoriam") it bears a second posting here:


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
his web-site provides: 1) an easy-to-understand Calendar of Events, 2) a "Web Event Page" for each Event, 3) Rules for Competition, 4) names and contact information  for all Coordinators, and 5) a common page for viewing all past Results.

The site is maintained up-to-date ONLY with the full cooperation of ALL Coordinators and the GNOSO Administration, ONLY if they PROVIDE NOTIFICATION to the Web-master when any and all changes occur.  Any change to the schedule, venues or personnel contacts can be posted to the web-site as soon as the Web-master is notified.  Based SOLELY upon keeping that information up-to-date we will then be able to say in 2016, "Welcome to the world of information availability!"  Happy Browsing!

GNOSO's 2016 Senior Olympiad has Concluded!  All Events have been Reported and are being Posted to this Web-site.

GNOSO Results - New Approach to  Viewing, Beginning With 2017 Games

Starting in 2017, ALL RESULTS will be accessed from the Menu tab "Results - All," instead of from the Individual Web Event pages.  This will reduce "clutter" on the individual Web Event Pages and will allow rapid "year-to-year" comparison of Results.  NOTE that PHOTOS will still be viewed from the Event Web Page for which the photos were taken.

On-Line Registration for the GNOSO Games IS NOW CLOSED

  • Athletes were encouraged to register "On-Line" for the 2016 Games using a "Register Now" button
  • As each registration deadline passed for any Event, the Event would no longer show on the ActiveNet page for GNOSO Registration.
  • Users who Registered On-Line received immediate confirmation of their Registration, and a receipt for any payment.

The Less-Preferred Paper Registration Form with Mail-in and Payment via Check will Remain available for 2017

Athletes/Participants may continue to use the less-preferred Paper Entry Form Mail-in.  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/entrants who register via the Paper Entry form receive neither confirmation nor a receipt for payment

Note: All Registration information is entered into the ONE database that ActiveNetwork maintains on-line for GNOSO, whether obtained through On-Line Registration or Paper Regtistration Form.

or are a 90+ year-old participant who does Washer Pitch plays Bridge, does Team Dancing or does Track & Field, we have something for you. GNOSO's goal is to get Seniors off the couch, out of the doctors offices, and into a Healthy Lifestyle, whether for the exercise, or for the social values of being around other Seniors.
