July 3, 2017: Longtime GNOSO Shooting Coordinator Skip Blanchard is Honored for his Service to Country.

An article in The Times-Picayune newspaper on Sunday July 2, 2017, honored Air Force veteran and Shooting Co-Coordinator, Skip Blanchard for his military service. The newspaper article and the accompanying photos were a well-deserved tribute to his heroic service to our country. It is great to have him involved in a leadership role in the GNOSO.

(Web-master's NOTE: We - GNOSO AND the world - are truly blest to have heroes like Skip in our midst, and to have had as well as the three Senior Olympians identified below.)

July 2, 2017: Sadly we report that two long-time Senior Olympians were both called Home on June 26, 2017

They will be missed by all.  The pages behind the "In Memoram" Menu Link has been updated with stories of their passing.

Rosemary Ruello, one of the oldest Senior Olympians, was passionate about playing Bridge.  She participated in the 2017 Olympiad, winning a medal for her efforts. Her Obituary notes that she played Bridge socially just 10 days before passing. 

Gladys DeLaune, who played Horseshoes, Shuffleboard and Washer Pitch was 91.

Iconic Senior Olympian and Sports Legend Lou Reicke Passed Away May 31, 2017

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 Professional football at the Championship Level. He was an acrobat, a weight lifter and a Coach, earning four Superbowl Rings with the Pittsburg Steelers.  Beyond all those formidable accomplshments, Lou was a genuine pleasure to know.  A quet man - a man of dignity - respected by all he came into contact with.  For more, see the Menu Tab below at left, "IN MEMORIAM."

Meantime, the 2017 GNOSO Senior Games have been completed.

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.
