We interviewed Harold Vealey, President of WVSSC and Bobby Hurley, Chair of the Golf event.

Harold talked about the mission and purpose of the WV Senior Sports Classic. They are a 501 c3 non-profit organization created to promote and create interest in lifetime sports, recreation and physical exercise as a means of enhancing one’s quality of life.  They sponsor an annual WV Senior Games with several events for adults 50 years of age and older.

He has participated for over 20 years.

Bobby discussed his lifelong love of golf and looks forward to the golf event. It will be held on June 18, 2024 at Little Creek Golf Club beginning at 10:00 AM. Males and Females welcome.

WVSSC is part of the National Senior Games Association. This is a qualifying year. Participants who finish in the top 3 of their competition, qualify for the National Games next summer in Des Moines IA.

The NSGA uses 5-year increments to keep the competition on a level playing field.
