Ruth and Woody Gove and I will be playing a two-day table tennis tournament in the Henderson, Nevada Senior Games. Ruth and I will play doubles in an event where any combination of men and women will work. Woody does not yet have a doubles partner but we will all play singles. Ruth will play singles in the 70-74 age group while both Woody and I will play the 75-79 singles.

Two days later the three of us will play in the Nevada Senior Olympics in Las Vegas. Again we will all play singles in the same age events as in Henderson. However, Ruth and I will play mixed doubles and Woody and I will play men’s doubles in this event. Ruth will play women’s 70-74 singles, partnering with Doreen Schofield of Stockport, England.

Two days still later we will all play in the 4-day Huntsman World Senior Games in St. George, Utah. We will all play with the same partners as in Las Vegas.

We will enjoy seeing many of our friends and acquaintances which we have developed in the years of attending these games, some of whom we see only once a year. (This will be my 10th year at Las Vegas and the Huntsman.)

This will be Woody and my first competitions as doubles partners. Ruth and I have played mixed doubles many times, even back to the days when we were in much younger age groups.

We have other friends from East Tennessee going to the Huntsman World Games. Dr. Paul and Ruth Hua who are frequent attendees to the Nevada Senior Olympics and the World Senior World Games, will be there again this year.

A newcomer the World Games is Tony Capozzi of Lenoir City, Tennessee. We have talked these events up to Tony so much that he is really anxious to get started.

I will report on the results when we return. Keep your fingers crossed for our safety and success.
