The Cavendish 50-plus club held its third biennial Winter Olympics on Feb. 21, and once again, the day-long event was an overwhelming success, filled with enthusiasm, camaraderie and colourful and outlandish outfits.

Fittingly, participants flying Canada's colours won the most gold medals throughout the day, while "Team India" came second. Here are some photos from the event.
