SAD UPDATE 7/24/17

GNOSO has learned of the passing of two Senior Olympians on the same day, June 26, 2017.  Rose Ruello and Gladys Delaune will be missed by all.  Rose was one of the oldest Senior Olympions at the time of her passing.  She participated in - and was passionate about Bridge.  Her Obituary noted that she played Bridge Socially just 10 days before her passing.  Gladys Delaune was a past participant in GNOSO Horseshoes, Shuffleboard and Washer Pitch.  She was 91.  The Menu Tab at left, "IN MEMORIAM" provides additional information.


The Webmaster was just made aware of the passing of another Senior Olympian who passed away on March 10, 2017 at the age of 96.  Harold N. "Pa Da" Whitney was not only a Senior Olympian, he was the father of Senior Olympian and Coordinator Neill Whitney; Neill's wife Mattie is also a Coordinator and GNOSO Photographer.  "Pa Da" was the brother of Senior Olympian Gladys Delaune.  He will be missed by all.  He was the Oldest Male Senior Olympian in 2009; although he had recently not been able to compete due to illness.  Click the Menu Tab at left, "IN MEMORIAM" for additional information.


GNOSO extends to the family of Lou Reicke our deepest sympathy on his passing.  Lou was well known to not only GNOSO, but to Athletics from every walk and level from High School, to City Competition, to College Competition, to International Olympics to the National Football League at the Championship Level.  He was an acrobat, a weight lifter and a Coach, earning four NFL Super Bowl Rings with the Pittsburg Steelers.  In addition to his formidable accomplishments, Lou was a genuine pleasure to know.  A quiet man - a man of dignity - respected by all he came into contact with.  For more see the Menu Tab at Left, "IN MEMORIAM." 

RESULTS from ALL the 2017 Senior Games have been Received and Posted.  Photographs from the Games have been posted as received; however, only no Photos have been received from the Beanbag Baseball, or from the Team Dance Events.  PHOTOS WILL BE POSTED TO THE WEB-SITE IMMEDIATELY AFTER BEING RECEIVED.

EVENT RESULTS may be reviewed by visiting the Event's Web Event Page, or by using the Main Menu Tab "Results - All."  (The "Results - All" Menu Tab was conceptualized as a service to those athletes who prefer rapid "year-to-year" comparison of Results.  A SIMILAR approach is under consideration to provide year-to-year viewing of Event PHOTOS.)



GREATER NEW ORLEANS Web-Site is designed for easy access to all things GNOSO and the Senior Games.  Use the applicable "Menu Tab" at left to any Event Page of interest.
