A life-long Silver Grey Sports Club dream, to ski in Canada, was fulfilled this winter when we had a trip to Whistler in January. It most certainly won't be the last time there. Plenty of Silver Greys on the piste and which led to our being informed of the existence of the Whistler Senior Ski Team (SST), a group of Silver Grey skiers we referred to in a previous piece A Tale of Two Whistlers.
And of the two Whistlers referred to in that piece SST definitely falls into our camp, in fact their web-site strapline "We Grow Old Because We Stop Playing, Never Stop!" echoes the very sentiments expressed in our own motto.
"You don't quit skydiving because you get old, you get old because you quit skydiving!" is a quote on the home page of a parachuting organisation, which includes within it a group called Skydivers Over Sixty (SOS) .

Think you know what old people look like? Frail, walking unsteadily and their back bent over from the weight of their head? Spindly arms and legs, bulbous elbow- and knee-joints? Think again!

Few people can be unaware of the terrifying and extraordinary events that took place at the WSL surf competition at J-Bay on Sunday during the final round when three-time world surfing champion Mick Fanning was attacked by a 12-ft great white shark.
"Jamais s'arrêter de pédaler" - meaning "Never Stop Pedalling" - is the personal philosophy of an 82-year-old French cyclist and skier whom we met in the early days of Silver Grey Sports Club. Coming across this film about 80-year-old cycle racer Sydney Wilson the words have a literal as well as metaphorical meaning. The need for PR must be one of the least appealing aspects of modern corporate life so it was a pleasant surprise when it produced something really quite exciting - this video about Sidney Wilson, who was filmed as part of a PR campaign for a milk brand. The campaign was a competition to find the brand's local area's fittest grandparent.
Legendary waterman and tow-in-surf pioneer Laird Hamilton passed his fiftieth birthday last year making him eligible for inclusion on the Silver Grey Sports Club website. Not your average 51-year-old, but then he hasn't been average at any time in his life.
Here's a video from TMZ Sports showing him "shooting the pier" at Malibu on his stand-up paddleboard.
