<March 21, 2020> 2020 WISCONSIN SENIOR GAMES CANCELLED
“It was with a great reluctance, and much discussion, the Wisconsin Senior Games’ board of directors has decided to CANCEL the 2020 games originally scheduled for this June.
The current uncertainty with the Covid-19 pandemic, and when this virus will be brought under control and a return to normal occurs, led to this conclusion.
Our main concern is the safety and health of our participants. We look forward to 2021! Stay well. Thank you — Reggie”
