Welcome to GNOSO.net, where considerable effort is devoted to the presentation of all information pertinent to GNOSO. Included are: an easy-to-understand Calendar of Events and an "Event Page" for each Event offered in the Games. Included also is a LINK to the LSOG Rules Book which provides clarification on how to participate in GNOSO Competition. The "Menu" (grey bar on the left) contains a LINK to a list of Event Coordinators for the Current Year; and to a common page for viewing all Event Results.
The cooperation of each GNOSO Event Coordinator, and the GNOSO Administration is VITAL if information is to remain up-to-date and current. ONLY by their Real-time NOTIFICATION to the Web-master of any and all changes that occur in schedule, venues or personnel contacts, can be that information be posted to the web-site. With every expectation that Coordinators will do so, "Welcome to the world of information availability!" And... Happy Browsing!
GNOSO's 2016 Senior Olympiad has been Completed! All Events have been Reported and are being Posted to this Web-site (except Arts & Crafts, which was submitted in Paper form only, which your Webmaster has mislaid).
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT FROM AAAneurysm Outreach
Free community screening event July 16 in New Orleans!
Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm is a serious, and potentially fatal condition which affects people "in our age group," but can strike at any age. Please take the time to view the AAAneurysm Outreach Publicity Flyer for information on detecting this "silent killer" condition and on treatment for it. The Flyer has pertinent information on scheduling and attending the screening. Also, we suggest that you view the AAAneurysm Outreach Web-site for additional information; just use the second Link given above.
GNOSO Results - Will be Viewed Differently Starting in 2017
AS OF the 2017 Olympiad, ALL RESULTS will be accessed from the Menu tab "Results - All," rather than from the Individual Web Event pages. This reduces "clutter" on the individual Web Event Pages and allows rapid "year-to-year" comparison of Results. A SIMILAR approach to viewing "last 4 years' " PHOTOS is currently under construction.
On-Line Registration (NOW CLOSED, but will Re-Open for 2017 Games)
Athletes were encouraged to register "On-Line" for the 2017 Games usinga "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 Registered On-Line received immediate confirmation of their Registration, and a receipt for any payment.
The Less-Preferred "Paper Registration Form" with Mail-in and Payment via Check Will be available in 2017
Athletes/Participants may continue to use the less-preferred Paper Entry Form Mail-in. 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/entrants who register via the Paper Entry form receive neither confirmation nor a receipt for payment
Note: All Registration information is entered into the ONE database that ActiveNetwork maintains on-line for GNOSO, whether obtained through On-Line Registration or Paper Registration Form.
