           SAS bikers stop for lunch in Montello                     

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 200 members and 12 to 14 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!



NEED FOR NEW LEADERS

As we look forward to 2017, we’re in need of NEW leaders. PLEASE VOLUNTEER !!!

Bob Brooks has devoted 7 years to his term as SAS president along with co-leading biking and helping his wife Mary with Hospitality. He is willing to be Past President (a position that has been vacant for several years and can be helpful to the new leader) but Bob needs a break from the current routine.

The president is the organization hero who keeps it all together and initiates our 3 board meetings and 3 general meetings per year. Please call Bob 658-2016 for information.

Ice Skating,Snow Shoeing, and Cross Country Skiing, and Mall Walking need new leaders.
Being a leader or co-leader is generally painless and mainly involves keeping information from your group flowing through our newsletter, which feeds the web site, and provides email updates.

Our membership has begun to grow and we really need help to continue this trend. Please think of volunteering to be a leader for one (or two) of the activities you love.
Please call Bob: 658-2016 or Betty Jean 651-231-6879 for more information.

If there is another activity, not listed, that you’d like to lead, please let us know.



ANNUAL MEETING IN NOVEMBER

Our annual meeting and pot luck for lunch will be held on a Thursday in early November. The location has not been determined. Plans for 2017 will be the focus. Please contact Bob at 658-2016 (cell) if you have any ideas for a program or location.



PAPER COPIES OF NEWSLETTER FOR ALL

 

We are considering sending paper copies of the newsletter to all SAS members along with the email copy unless we are notified that you really prefer to NOT receive the paper copy. This may cause a small increase in dues for 2017. Decision at November Annual Meeting.



NEWSLETTER ITEMS

 

Please send all items, pictures, and address changes for the SAS newsletter by the 15th of the previous month to Yvonne Sorge, 5310 Painted Post Dr., Madison, WI 53716, or call 221-3926, or, send an e-mail to yvonnesor@gmail.com Please also notify me if you have not received your newsletter by the 22nd of the previous month.
