ST. CHARLES PARISH HONORS A DEPARTED CITIZEN
On Saturday, September 17, GNOSO's own Bill Elrod wrote this moving tribute to his wife Zu, recently departed.
"Dear Family & Friends:
The American Cancer Society Relay for Life was held tonight in St. Charles Parish with a special recognition for Zu. I was presented a plaque signed by the Parish President and Council Members and they read her Obituary to the crowd. Anyway, I have been to nearly all of these events and have never seen this type of celebration for somebody that has died from Cancer.
Webmaster's NOTE: And, Bill Elrod, neither has anyone else - particularly within the short time span between her passing, this somber commemorative event, with Honors by so many.
Bill Elrod holds Commemorative Plaque Proclaiming Zu Elrod "Queen of St Charles Relay for Life." This American Cancer Society (and others) fundraiser raised over $130,000 for the day.
Candles burn in memory of Zu

CHANGES TO THE SITE NEW IN 2017
Starting in 2017, Olympiad Results Will be Accessed from the Main Menu Tab Only! (Use the Menu tab "Results - All," rather than Individual Web Event pages. This is done to in an effort to reduce "clutter" on individual Web Event Pages and to afford rapid "year-to-year" comparison of Results. A SIMILAR approach to viewing "last 4 years' " PHOTOS is currently in the works.
2017 GAMES will Commence in February, 2017:
On-Line Registration is CURRENTLY INACTIVE, but will ACTIVATED for the 2017 Games as soon as the schedule and Venues have been set
- Athletes were 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 GNOSO Registration.
- Users who Register On-Line receive immediate confirmation of their Registration, and a receipt for any payment.
- SPECIAL NOTE: PLEASE READ the INSTRUCTIONS COMPLETELY if Registering On-Line
"Paper Registration Form" with Mail-in and Payment via Check Remains 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.
