Review for Senior Games, Palo Alto, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have to say that my experience throughout my entire involvement with the 2009 National Senior Games / NSGA was exceptional. I had the privelege and the honor of announcing the swimming events portion of the Games for 5 days straight. It was, to say the very least, exhilerating!!! It must've taken me 2-3 days to come down to Earth from such a memorable and special experience. To witness heats of swimmers / competitors in their 90', 80', 70's, 60's and 50's was truly amazing and exciting. And, to see the enthusiastic encouragement, joy, the cheerful exuberance and support of the community at large for one another brought me to tears in many a deeply heartfelt moment. We were inspired by a wonderful couple, a pastor and her husband. She is legally blind and he is her steadfast support / cheerleader, as she swam and competed in 3 events during the course of days. I got to work with friends as a team, as well as, other wonderful Volunteers. Thanks, so very much to the 2009 National Senior Games, to Ann Cribbs, to Bonnie Luftig and her stalwart team for their dedication and good works in putting this 'party' on; job well done. Congratulations, one and all!!! Kindest regards - David "The Announcer Guy" Wierdsma
