As the 33rd Senior Olympic Festival comes to an end, I am reminded how fortunate I am to live in Tucson, Arizona. The festival hosted 31 sports with 35 events and while that may not sound like a lot, remember that we are very unique in that we live in a city that supports shooting events. I don’t want to make this about politics; however, most of you, if not all, know that a good number of this country is not gun friendly. If you enjoy any shooting sports, you should give the Senior Olympic Festival a shot.
Whether Air Pistol or Air Rifle, High Power Rifle, Pistol Rimfire/Centerfire, Trap & Skeet or Rimfire Sporter Rifle this is for you. Come out and support the activities you have always enjoyed. Come make new friends and have a great time, lunch included. On a side note, The Diamondback Shooting Sports Team won a total of eight medals, Six Gold, One Silver and One Bronze. That leaves a whole lot for you next time.
