Is the city of Palo Alto paying for the games again this year?

No more handouts or free services! We can't afford it. If he city council wants to hand out money - give it to the schools!

The City more than recouped their investment in the 2009 National Senior Games and local merchants saw an uptick in business in a depressed economy. With more than 25% of Californians now over 50, investing in the health of our aging population is money well spent.
The 2010 Bay Area Senior Games are funded by athlete registration and sponsorships.

I was dissappointed that volleyball was not mentioned, given the large number of older adults actively playing on the Peninsula and in the Bay Area. We have some of the finest facilities and venues for older volleyball players, provided by the IVL (Kirk Anderson)and more recently Bill Hoffman, an organizer of senior vollebyall. Volleyball competition is scheduled to be played 4/2-4/3 at Cubberly Community Ctr and I don't even see it mentioned.

Can anyone hook me up with a 65 women's 3 on 3 basketball league?
