Residents of Chesterbrook Residences proved recently that you are never too old to participate and triumph in Olympic Games.
Chesterbrook Residences kicked off its own Wii Olympics on Tuesday, August 12th with competition between the green and the yellow teams in the Wii bowling event. The competition was heated and team members were cheered on by their fellow residents who showed equal enthusiasm for both sides. Highlights of the event included a visit by Steve Gurney, publisher of the “Guide to Retirement Living”, along with his five-year old son.
The next event will be against volunteers at Chesterbrook on August 19th, followed by games against the local fire department the next day. On August 21st the teams will take on the staff of Chesterbrook.
The grand finale tournament event will take place at Chesterbrook Residences on August 26 against Potomac Place, a sister community located in Woodbridge, Virginia. Closing ceremonies will be on August 27.
Chesterbrook residents enjoy playing Wii games at least three times a week. The games give them a chance to compete, socialize, and maintain physical activity.
A complete report on the games was included in the Fall Church News-Press on August 13th.
