2014 Results Posted!

October 3, 2014

The official results of the 2014 Alaska International Senior Games are posted at last! We apologize for the delay, but our priority was putting together the qualifying results for the National Senior Games in Minnesota next year.

You can find them on the Results page. If you find any issues with the results, please email us!

Thanks again to everyone who participated this year, in any capacity!

Thanks to everyone who attended our 2015 annual meeting this evening. It was a great time of celebration of Games past mixed in with some business and lots of laughter. The only sad part is that it always seems to officially mark the end of another great summer of fun and Games. But we have next year to look forward to all the more! Especially if you’ll be attending the National Senior Games in Minnesota in July.

Big thanks to Andrea Gelvin, Angie Vanlandingham, Carol Moore, and Chirk Chu for stepping up and applying to be on the board! We look forward to working with you even more closely than we have in the past. And we’re super happy that Diann Darnall and Jim Lewandoski signed up for another term. We’re sorry to see Laird Grantham go at the expiration of his latest term, but very grateful for his years of service and look forward to his continuing participation with Senior Games. All the current officers agreed to serve another year, so the board for the coming year is in place and looks to be a great group of people. We’re stoked!

Alaska International Senior Games Promoter Stipends are available to support Alaskan AISG athletes who will be attending the Huntsman World Senior Games in St. George, Utah, this coming October. Athletes must be willing to spend time promoting AISG by distributing material to senior participants and extend an invitation to come to Fairbanks to participate in AISG. We are looking for outgoing individuals who are passionate about AISG and want to help AISG grow.

AISG must receive all applications by September 15th to be considered. Those receiving stipends will be notified by September 30th. The application contains more details. Applications are available online here, or you pick one up at the AISG office in the Regency Court Mall at 504 College Rd., Unit 6 (applications will be in the box on the door by September 1st) or by emailing us at info@alaskaisg.org.

Each year at our annual meeting, the board of the Alaska International Senior Games nominates and elects new members to the board, as well as elect officers for the upcoming year. It’s a fun and rewarding way to get more involved with Senior Games, and we have lots of ways to be active. Terms are for three years.

To apply, please fill out and return the AISG Board Application [PDF] [Word].

The registration period for the 2014 edition of the Alaska International Senior Games is now closed. Our hard working registration volunteers are now busy getting everything ready for the Games, and soon the sport commissioners will have the final list of participants for their events. And all the final preparations are underway!

We look forward to seeing everyone in Fairbanks next week, for another fun and competitive series of events!

This week is the last chance to register for the 12th Annual Alaska International Senior Games! Deadline is this Thursday, July 31, 2014. Unfortunately, we are not able to accept any late registrations for any reason.

If you like to laugh and have fun, this event is for you!

The 2014 Alaska Senior Games will be August 8-17 in Fairbanks.

We will still host the Basketball 3-on-3, which will be a qualifying event for the National Senior Games Championships in Minneapolis in 2015. However, we have added a Basketball Free Throw competition and a 3-on-3 Random Coed tournament to add some variety to the Games. (Note all events marked with * are NSGA qualifying events.)
