Pre-register your team by calling the Newport Senior Center at 541 265-9617. Teams also should bring along their favorite cheerleaders! Prizes will be awarded to the top place teams. Come cheer your team on! Team themed dress is encouraged. Join in this fun pot luck event. Let us know what favorite dish you would like to share. Corned beef and cabbage will be supplied by the friends of the Newport Senior Activity Center.
In the Wii bowling game, players hold onto a controller device as if it were a bowling ball and try to hit the virtual pins at the end of a lane on the screen. The game doesn’t require quite as much physical activity as real-life bowling — for one, the “ball” doesn’t weigh much — but players do have to move around and perhaps get out of their chairs when it’s their turn. Some find it challenging at first to throw the bowling ball using the controller, but they figure it out.
Participation is FREE of charge. These games are a good way to improve your senses visually, and physically. Join us in the sociability of interacting with others. It will undoubtedly lift your spirits. For more information and to sign up for any programs please call us at 265-9617 or drop into the Newport 60+ Activity Center @ 20 SE 2nd St., or check out our website at www.newportoregon.gov/sc.
The pot luck feast starts at 11:30 with a veritable buffet of tasty finger foods, and delectable delicacies.
