|Monthly Speed Gaming events for 50 Plus begin Sept. 20 at MCAC|
Meeting new people can be hard to do without some activity to keep your hands and mind busy. The 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District has a solution in the form of a new program called Speed Gaming.
Participants will play old-school board games and have a blast. Once a month Speed Gaming events are being offered September through December. The first session will take place on Sept. 20 with other events following on Oct. 11, Nov. 15, and Dec. 13. All take place beginning at 1 p.m. on a Friday at the Mill Creek Activity Center, 6518 Vista Dr., Shawnee.
To find these programs in the JCPRD’s Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under 50 plus and then under special events. In the catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keyword “games.”
The cost for each three-hour event is $5 per person. Preregister by the Tuesday prior to the event(s) you plan to attend.
While the JCPRD's 50 Plus programs are primarily for people who are age 50 or older, interested parties who have not yet reached that magic age may still be able to attend. Persons 18 and older who are interested in a 50 Plus class are invited to call the District's Registration Department at (913) 831-3359, and if space is available without forfeiting the place of a person over 50, their registration can be taken.
For more information about Speed Gaming, call (913) 826-2859. The JCPRD's Activities catalog, with information and a registration form, is available for pickup at all Johnson County Library branches.
