National Senior League
National Senior Virtual Bowling Week is taking place this week in senior facilities around the country.
The 2012 edition of the LeadingAge annual meeting and exposition kicks off Sunday in Denver and promises a wide variety of educations sessions, activities and special attractions for long-term care providers. Keynote speakers are Nobel Prize winner Tutu on Sunday, surgeon/writer Atul Gawande on Monday and MIT Technology AgeLab director Joseph Coughlin on Tuesday. More than 200 education sessions will be sprinkled in and around exhibition hall hours (12 to 3:30 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, as well as 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Wednesday).
A few years ago Joe Riccobene thought his days of playing sports were over. Now one of the winners of the National Senior League Wii bowling competition continues to bowl, golf and play tennis—virtually, that is.
Only 20 pins separated the two teams, but in the end there could be only one winner of the first-ever National Senior League Wii Bowling championship game. "The SAS Strikers" from St. Andrews Estates South in Boca Raton, FL, were it.
After months of competitive play, the "SAS Strikers" from St. Andrews Estates South in Boca Raton, FL, will face off against the "Riverside Silver" from Riverside Place in Charleroi, PA, in Tuesday's National Senior League Wii Bowling Championship Game.
