GNOSO mourns the passing of Senior Olympian Amelia Gassen of Luling, LA. For more detail see the "In Memoriam" Section, accessible from the Menu, lower left.
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! All Events have been Reported and are being Posted to this Web-site.
Viewing Results - "Past Year" and Current: A New Approach
Starting this year ( 2016), ALL previous years can be accessed from the Menu tab "Results - All," instead of from the Individual Web Event pages. This reduces "clutter" on the individual Web Event Pages and allows rapid "year-to-year" comparison of Results.
On-Line Registration for the GNOSO 2016 Games IS NOW CLOSED
Athletes were encouraged to register "On-Line" for the 2016 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 Remain available for 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 Regtistration Form.
