Mature-age athletes urged to sign up
By SEATON KAY-SMITH
"ARE you tough enough?" That's the question Lismore Workers Club Masters Games is asking mature-aged athletes, and Kerrie Seymour, 44, says she is.
Kerrie was the first Lismore native to hand in her entry form ? in plenty of time for the earlybird deal which expires on June 22.
For two days in September, Kerrie will be competing in five aquatic events at the Masters (September 21-23), her first as the swimming convenor and her second as a competitor.
Another keen Masters swimmer, Janet Henry, not to be mistaken for Jodie Henry when she dives into the competition pool, has also submitted her entry form early.
Janet, who is 73 years young, will compete in the 50m, 100m, 200m and 400m freestyle.
This year is the fifth year for the bi-annual games and organisers expect to receive more than 2500 entrants across 15 different sports.
If you are looking to enter this fun and exciting sporting competition, grab yourself an entry form from the website at www.lismore.nsw.gov.au or by calling the information line on 6625 0500.
There is still plenty of time before the cut-off date for the 2007 Lismore Masters Games, but as the saying goes, the earlybird gets the worm.
