SPECIAL NOTICE TO BOCCE ENTHUSIASTS! Howard Davenport is planning a BOCCE TOURNAMENT, Scheduled for January 21, 2017. TO PARTICIPATE, CALL HOWARD at (504) 835-0635 and let him know. Fee is $5.00 and Food is $5.00. THE January 21 Bocce Tournament is separate and apart from the 2017 Senior GAMES!
2017 GAMES Commence in February, 2017
On-Line Registration (CURRENTLY INACTIVE, but will be ACTIVATED for the 2017 Games after the schedule and Venues have been set)
Athletes are encouraged to register "On-Line" for the 2017 Games usinga "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 immediate confirmation of their Registration, and a receipt for payment.
SPECIAL NOTE: PLEASE READ the INSTRUCTIONS COMPLETELY before Registering On-Line,
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.
"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.
Event Results Will be Available from the Main Menu Tab(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.
