Welcome to GNOSO.net - your easy access to all things GNOSO and Senior Games.
The MENU at left - Each "bar" changes color from Gray - to Pink when "left-clicked." Each bar LINKS to a specific source of information. LINKS include a Calendar of Events for "at-a-glance" scheduling information. Other LINKS take you to an "Event Page" for each Event offered in the Games. There is also a LINK to the LSOG Rules Book which clarifies how to participate in GNOSO Competition, another LINK leads to a list of Event Coordinators for the Current Year, There is a LINK to a common page for viewing all Event Results. Several other LINKS lead to information that are helpful to a GNOSO Senior Athlete.
Beginning with the 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 was done 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 usinga "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.
