Seniors who are active members (bronze qualified) are also eligible to compete in the country and state championships. The events for the state championships are grouped into 5 year age brackets (eg. 40-44, 45-49). There is a great camaraderie amongst all the competitors, perhaps it is just to be out on the beach extending themselves. Although there are some serious competitors, the whole atmosphere is enjoyable and fun.
Don’t be shy, “have a go!”
