Zone 10 seniors hold final meet

The last meeting before the August 2015 BC Seniors Games between members from Terrace, Kitimat and Prince Rupert was held on July 25 in Prince Rupert.

Among the updates was a drastic shortage of people wanting to play Whist, and the continuation of the game will be in jeopardy in future games if numbers continue to be low.

Zone 10 jackets and shirts have arrived and are being distributed to participants.

The games will take place in North Vancouver from Aug. 25 – 29.
