The forecast for St. George, Utah, early next week is highs in the low 70s. Nice. It’s time for the Huntsman World Senior Games — the last major geezer meet in North America. It’s Oct. 15-17 at Snow Canyon High School (“NEW Mondo Track!!”). I don’t have access to the entrants list, but the schedule shows a lot of competition in many of the 50-plus age groups. At least nine gents over 85 are entered in the 100, for example. (And 16 in M75, 22 in M60.) So you’ll have to earn your medals. The popular 50-meter dash and standing long jump are back (but no hurdles or pole vault). Throws are hot, too.
As usual, local news reported that we spend money. Who knew?
