Older story, but a great piece on the World Masters Championships.

Taken from a blog post on the site:

 

"The most enduring and endearing aspect of these games is the good feelings among the competitors. It is what keeps me coming back every four years. The blemishes on modern big-time sports -- bragging and trash talk -- simple don't exist here. My opponents in both sports were unfailingly welcoming, generous, helpful. In addition to the camaraderie, I like the high level of age-group competition, particularly in "minor" sports which often don't draw lots of older athletes. These games were well-organized with more than 4,000 volunteers who went out of their way to help and guide the athletes. "

 

I have found these things to be absolutely true: the people --officials and other athletes-- are the best part of the competition. Everybody pulls for everyone else. Truly marvelous.

Here's a handy dandy calendar of sports championship events happening around the country for those of a certain age. Smiley Happy Actually some of these allow 40+ year olds, but not all.  Here's about half of the listed September events (click on the photo to enlarge it):

 And this is what they show for October:

DH and I are registered for one of these events. Anyone else training for fall events?
