In a recent article for Laker/Lutz News, our sister publication from Florida, staff journalist B.C. Manion writes on the Florida Senior Games coming to Pasco County to encourage athletes over the age of 50 to compete and showcase their skills to the community. Not only are the games great entertainment, but participants and onlookers alike provide a steady stream of tourism dollars to the local economy whilst the event is happening.
“[A]fter the athletes are done competing, chances are people who live and work in the county will notice a stream of visitors who are out and about enjoying what Pasco has to offer, said Nick Gandy, a media consultant for the Florida Sports Foundation.
