Tuesday 10 January 2006  Sporting Smorgasbord offers wide variety of healthy alternatives for New Year shape up

If one of your New Year's resolutions is to be more active or take up a new pastime, then the latest offering from Caloundra City Council is sure to tempt even the fussiest of us.

Caloundra City Mayor Don Aldous said the Sporting Smorgasbord is Council's latest out there and active program, designed to give local residents an opportunity to have a go at an activity they previously haven't tried or not done for some time.

"This program is a great way to not only learn something new, but benefit your health at the same time," Cr Aldous said.

The program, jointly funded by Council and Sport and Recreation Queensland will offer a summer and an autumn program, with activities such as Tai Chi, croquet, boogie boarding, aqua aerobics, fencing, canoeing, yoga, golf and wheelchair ballroom dancing.

All of the activities are free to CalPass holders, with a small fee for some activities for non-members.

"This is the perfect opportunity for those of us who made new year resolutions to improve their health and become more active, with a wide range of activities to suit all tastes and abilities."

Cr Aldous said its also a great time to join CalPass, with a special promotion running in the current edition of Caloundra City Living offering hundreds of dollars in prizes for those who join up before the end of the month.

To register, or for more information, contact Council's Recreation and Community Services unit on 5420 8723 or email

Details of the CalPass competition, including entry forms are available in the December edition of Caloundra City Living.
