Greater New Orleans Senior Olympics

GNOSO continues to mourn the passing of Senior Olympian Amelia Gassen of Luling, LA.  A planned write-up for posting in the "In Memoriam" Section is in progress.  It will be viewable via a link in the Menu at left.

Seniors, click here for an INSPIRATIONAL and INFORMATIVE Newsletter from National.  (Provided to GNOSO courtesy of LSOG.)

GNOSO created this web-site to provide all the latest information pertaining to the Senior Games  The web-site provides: 1) an easy-to-understand Calendar of Events, 2) a page for each Event, 3) LSOG Rules for Competition, 4) a compilation of all the Coordinators, and 5) all past Results. The site can remain up-to-date ONLY wiith the full cooperation of ALL Coordinators and the GNOSO Administration, if they PROVIDE NOTIFICATION to the Web-master when any and all changes occur.  Any change to the schedule, venues or personnel contacts can be posted to the web-site as soon as the Web-master is notified.  Based SOLELY upon keeping that information up-to-date we will then be able to say in 2016, "Welcome to the world of information availability!"  Happy Browsing!

The GNOSO 2016 Senior Olympiad has Concluded!  MOST of the Events have been Reported and Posted to this Web-site. We await Cycling and Shuffleboard results.

How to View "Past Year" Results - New Approach

Starting in 2016, Individual Web Event Pages not link to "2015 Results" for past year results.  Instead, results from ANY previous year may be accessed from the Menu tab "Results - All."  Individual Web Event pages now link to CURRENT YEAR Results only - as results are made available, and to current photos, if any.

Registration for the GNOSO 2016 Games IS NOW CLOSED

On-Line Registration

  • Athletes were encouraged to register "On-Line" for the 2016 Games using a "Register Now" button
  • As each registration deadline passed for any Event, the Event would no longer show on the ActiveNet page for GNOSO Registration.
  • Users who Registedr On-Line received immediate confirmation of their Registration, and a receipt for any payment.

Less Preferred But Available: Paper Entry Form Mail-in

Athletes/Participants who were unable to use On-Line Registration could use the less-preferred Paper Entry Form Mail-in.  Using Mail-in Registration:

  • previous-year participants received a Paper form via US Mail
  • or, a copy of the form may  be "downloaded" from this site (using a clearly-identified LINK to "download" the form)
  • Athletes/entrants who register via the Paper Entry form received neither confirmation nor a receipt for payment

Note: All Registration information was entered into the ONE database that ActiveNetwork maintains on-line for GNOSO, whether obtained through On-Line Registration or Paper Regtistration Form.
