Review for Senior Games, Palo Alto, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I helped with the Women's racquetball at the Page Mill YMCA. It was a fun wxperience, and I think the Y deserves a great deal of credit for their help and providing the court time for the games. Palo Alto did a great job with the games, especially with the Athletes Village at Stanford, and downtown at City Hall. The Celebration of Athletes was also a very nice show, and obviously had a great deal of thought and effort put into it. I had a great time. Bob Kelley

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Allow the event organizers to set up draw sheets for the event closer to the time of the event, rather than 1 months early. There were numerous changes that had to be made due to competitors not showing up. Perhaps there could be a penalty for no shows.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Having the Olympic Senior Games run so well in our own neighborhoods.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

All very willing to help make the event go well.

Ways to make it better...

There had not been so many competitor cancellations at the last minute, right before the competition began.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

One time
