Sports for Active Seniors is an organization based in Madison, Wisconsin for people 55 and up who want to participate in active, noncompetitive sports in a social setting.

It is our history, our desire, and hopefully our practice, to make newcomers feel welcome.  You will not be a stranger very long.

We have about 150 members and 10 sports.  Each sport is organized by the participants, with volunteer leaders.

People over the age of 55 interested in actively participating in sports are invited to join us.

Try us out!  Join if you like what you see!



SAS 30th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION

The celebration is being postponed until after the threat of the Corona virus has completely disappeared from our area.



EMAIL NOTIFICATIONS

While our usual SAS activities have suddenly and unexpectedly been put on hold for now, if this crisis comes to an end within the next month, please watch for emails announcing resuming activities. The paper copy of this newsletter will only be sent to members who do not have email this month.

If you are a SAS activity leader and would like to publicize an activity which will resume, please let me know and I can easily send an email notification to the general membership. Yvonne - yvonnesor@gmail.com or 221-3926



PAPER COPIES OF NEWSLETTER

If you have problems printing out the newsletter or would like a paper copy sent to you for any reason, please contact Yvonne at 221-3926 or yvonnesor@gmail.com to be put on the paper copy mail list. You will still receive the email copy and other alerts by email if we have your email address.



MEMBERSHIP DUES VERIFICATION

The system is pretty slow. We do not bill for dues but will let you know if yours is due with a caption on the top of the newsletter. Dues are sent to a PO box that the treasurer usually checks twice a month. She then sends the membership application to the Membership Chairman. The membership chairman then checks for changes from the previous year's data and sends me any changes, new information, and new members information so that I can update my records before sending the next newsletter.

I will send out 2 newsletter batches for the next few months. The caption on one group will say “Your dues have been recorded as paid for 2020. “ The second will say “Our records indicate that your dues for 2020 HAVEN’T been paid.” Please be patient with us if your dues have been paid but not yet recorded. Thanks, Yvonne



VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!! More volunteers mean more fun, more ideas and less work for everyone.

Board members are needed to handle Archives and Publicity.

1.) ARCHIVES: Collects, organizes, references as needed and arranges for storage of necessary records and other materials to maintain a history of the Society, including but not limited to Minutes of Board and General meetings, newsletters, and yearly Registry of Members.

2.) PUBLICITY: Provides publicity for sports activities, meetings and special events. Sends press releases to appropriate newspapers and TV/Radio stations. Current board are willing to maintain their current positions. But there is always room for more help. Very few meetings and time are involved.. Much of our communication is by email. Contact Bob at 244-5582 or bandalaro@gmail.com

ACTIVITY LEADERS: Co-leaders are still needed for Bocce, Camping, Downhill Skiing, Ice Skating, Mall Walking and Outdoor walking.

Out of town activities been very successful in 2018. In an effort to make it easier to car pool, find over night accommodations, and roommates, it is recommended that meetings for interested individuals be held in advance.
