Chairmans Report

The Granite State Senior Games, Inc (GSSG) will be conducting the 26th annual summer games for competition for the 50+ community in New Hampshire.

One of the major changes that we are sure you will appreciate is a new online registration system. This new system is a robust and world class software solution that is easy to use and should make your registration process quick and smooth.

This year we have introduced softball as a new team sport. There will be two age groups for this double elimination tournament. Ages 50-59 and 60+. Each age group will be limited to eight (8) teams. Golf and horseshoes have been relocated to new sites.

For the past several years, we have been very fortunate to pay little or no fees at various venue sites. The last three years the private and public venues have introduced higher fees which have impacted our bottom line to the extent that we have been operating in the red. As a result, our Board voted to increase the registration fee this year to $40. This fee goes to pay national dues, insurance, venue fees, officials, advertising and web site design and hosting.

We also made a change in the golf event. In the past, golfers paid a registration fee and a greens fee. This year golfers will pay only a green’s fee of $55. If a golfer desires to participate in another event, he/she must pay the registration fee of $40.
