“This’ll be my fifth year,” said hockey player Ron Kassian on August 6. “It’s great, really interesting. The first time I went I was amazed at the number of people, especially those over 65 and 70.”

Kassian feels the games are worthwhile to check out, for any age. They may be inspired to be more active.

“It would be good for anyone,” said Kassian, “to go and see just who’s competing.”
