Father's Day

Since Father's Day is approaching, we thought we would bring you some information on discounts available on those things dad likes to do.

A couple of weeks ago we discussed those senior discounts available at Golf Courses. Here is a quick review of the age requirements and discounts you can expect to find. Age requirements at golf courses will vary from facility to facility and while there are discounts available for dads that are 50 or 55 years of age, many discounts may not begin until 60 or 62. Like the age requirements, the amount of the discount can be different at every course. Discounts can range anywhere from 10% or a couple of dollars from the green fees to more than 50% or more than $50 dollars. Don't forget senior discounts can also be found on golf cart rentals and at driving ranges. Some facilities will offer discounts on lessons or golf camps and pro shops may extend the course senior discount to the cloths and equipment in the shop. To read the full article in the previous newsletter, click here.

In April, we also touched on sporting events' senior discounts. While the major US sports; baseball, basketball, football, golf and hockey, do have some senior discounts, dad will most likely find discounts at other events, like soccer, tennis, rodeo or track among others. Minor league and city teams and college and high school sports are one of the best places to locate senior discounts. These events may provide discounts for every game or for a particular event. Expect to save anywhere from 10% to 20% on the price of admission, but for those events that have a senior day the savings can be substantially more, sometimes 50% to 75%. To read the full article in the previous newsletter, click here.

There are many other recreational sporting activities that will offer a senior discount. Local bowling alleys may give 10% off or more on the lane fees for seniors 50 and older. Batting cages and driving ranges may also offer some form of senior discount. There are also senior discounts at local roller skating and ice skating rinks. So have a great Father's Day and enjoy those discounts.

 
     
  This week we bring you some of the discounts available in our SeniorDiscounts Card program. The following discounts and over 130,000 more can be found at www.seniordiscounts.com. Included in each listing is the phone number, address, map of the location and more. Remember - we add more discounts every week.

Father's Day Facts

President Calvin Coolidge, in 1924, supported the idea of a national Father's Day. Then in 1966 President Lyndon Johnson signed a presidential proclamation declaring the 3rd Sunday in June as Father's Day. In 1972, President Richard Nixon signed the law which finally made it permanent.

105,000: The estimated number of "stay-at-home" dads as of 2003. These are married fathers with children under 15 who are not in the labor force primarily so they can care for the family while their wives work outside the home.

2.0 million: The number of single fathers as of 2003, up from 393,000 in 1970. There is one single father for every six single parents, compared with 1-in-10 in 1970.

Neckties head the list of Father's Day gifts. Sales at men's clothing stores approached or exceeded $800 million in May and June of 2003.

 

 
   
 
 
 

Father's Day Quotes:

A father carries pictures where his money used to be.

I don't care how poor a man is; if he has family, he's rich.

It is not flesh and blood but the heart which makes us fathers and sons. - Johann Schiller
