|November Speed Gaming event for 50 Plus will take place on Nov. 15 at MCAC|
Meeting new people can be hard to do without some activity to keep your hands and mind busy. That's the idea behind a program called Speed Gaming being offered by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District.
Participants will play old-school board games and have a blast. Once a month Speed Gaming events are being offered through December. The next session will take place beginning at 1 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 15, 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.
The final event of the fall season will take place on Dec. 13.
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.
