Priority registration is now open.

Kathy Fennel, President of FLW Operations Division stated: "We've listened to our walleye anglers and are confident that the 2012 schedule features fisheries that will provide quality fishing opportunities and exciting weigh-ins. We are also pleased to be able to add significant money to the National Guard FLW Walleye Tour Championship purse."

The four Walleye Tour qualifying events will be three-day, cumulative-weight tournaments. Pro anglers will compete for a top award of up to $63,500, and co-anglers will vie for a top prize of up to $10,500 in each tournament. Paybacks will be based on paid entries from 110-boat fields. First-place, however, is guaranteed regardless of field size. The paybacks will be $2,000 through 30th place on the pro side and $400 through 30th place on the co-angler side. For complete payout tables visit FLWOutdoors.com. Entry fees for 2012 are $1,250 per tournament for pros and $350 per tournament for co-anglers. Pros and co-anglers will be randomly paired each day and fish for a combined boat weight.

The 2012 Walleye Tour Championship will be a four-day cumulative-weight event that will consist of the top 40 pros and 40 co-anglers in the point standings plus the 2011 FLW Walleye Tour champion and Angler of the Year in both the pro and co-angler divisions. Pros will be competing for as much as $100,000, while co-anglers will be competing for as much as $15,000. Pros and co-anglers will be randomly paired each day and fish for a combined boat weight.

"We couldn't be happier to be hosting the 2012 Walleye Championship tournament in the Quad Cities," said Joe Taylor, president and CEO of the Quad Cities Convention and Visitors Bureau. "We are proud of our region, and to be able to showcase our cities and this fishery is an honor we don't take lightly. We have worked very hard with FLW to ensure that we can meet and fulfill all of the requirements that this caliber of tournament brings to the area. We are looking forward to October and can't wait for the championship to begin."

The Angler of the Year title will be awarded to the top point earner in both the pro and co-angler divisions. The top pro will receive $10,000, and $2,500 will go to the top co-angler at the end of the fourth regular-season event.

Priority registration is now open for the top 40 pros and co-anglers from the 2011 FLW Walleye Tour. Deposits for all four tournaments must be received by Jan. 30, 2012, in order to secure their priority entry position.

ROCK ISLAND, ILL.?Success requires an attitude - it's a passion for some. As an athlete, Gold Medal Olympian, coach and mentor, Iowa native and legend Dan Gable spoke about some of the very same traits and characteristics inherent in his passion - wrestling - and how they relate to traits and characteristics we practice and cherish in the Army.

As part of the First Army Commander's Conference at the Jumer's Hotel conference center here, Gable spent the evening with First Army Senior leaders, spouses, and Family Support Group members to talk about his life's experiences as a disciplined world-class athlete and coach.

"And when adversity hits, it's usually not by choice," he said. "When it hits, you've got to take it on. If you wait for the 'or', you may not survive - and that's where leadership steps in."

"Leadership is all about being motivated and applying and executing based on the passions you have built around and within you," said Gable.

"Leadership is being the first one at work, the hardest worker, and staying until the last person has left. It's about staying current and having the vision to create a great future. It's preventing adversity through discipline and preparation. Leadership is the ability to positively affect the masses so they become successful and do the same."

Being a leader means you know how to take care of people. "You've got to treat each and every team member in their own way," he said.

One athletic process that Gable feels is most essential and the building block of what's to come is recovery. He talked about how as a young athlete it was always easy to pick up from where one left off, without allowing one's body proper recovery. But now that he is older and wiser, and has incorporated science into this process, he's more in tune with the need for recovery?physically, mentally and emotionally.

"Go to the sauna, the spa, get a massage or swim. Think about what took place today during your recovery process and then think about what you need to do tomorrow."

"The bottom line is the future," he said. "There are good coaches and really good coaches, and there's some really, really good senior leadership and really, really great senior leadership. And hopefully that's what you all are, but you just don't realize it, and thank you for what you do," he said.

Senior leaders from First Army units across the United States attended the first ever First Army Commander's Conference here in Rock Island, Ill., Nov. 8. One of the purposes of the conference was to synchronize First Army efforts in reserve component training, mobilization, deployment and demobilization, all responsibilities as assigned by U.S. Forces Command.

The two-day event started with a physical training session of broomball on ice and soccer at Davenport's River's Edge sports complex.

A Family Leadership Conference attended by First Army Readiness and Support representatives was conducted simultaneously and provide information on military installation and community support systems for Soldiers and Family members.

New Go4Life campaign focuses on fitness for older adults

Public-private effort led by NIH reaches out to Boomers, their parents

Being physically active is vital to maintaining health and independence as we age, and a new federal campaign for people 50 and older will help them to get active and keep going. Introduced today by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Go4Life campaign encourages sedentary older adults to reap health benefits by making physical activity part of their daily lives. Only 25 percent of people aged 65-74 say they engage in regular physical activity.

Go4Life was presented Oct. 19, 2011, at a briefing on exercise and aging on Capitol Hill, hosted by Herb Kohl, D-Wis., Chair of the Senate Special Committee on Aging and by Mark Udall, D-Colo., Senate Special Committee on Aging.

The briefing highlighted the public-private partnership central to the campaign?a Go4Life team that will work to bring the campaign into communities across the United States. The team includes NIH, other agencies in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and national organizations, corporations, insurers, health care providers, and nonprofit organizations.

Go4Life's participating organizations will incorporate campaign resources into their own health and wellness activities, disseminating Go4Life web links and materials to their members, employees, and customers. Many partners will directly sponsor events or community activities aimed at engaging older adults in exercise and physical activity as the campaign moves forward.

The campaign was conceived, and is being led, by the National Institute on Aging (NIA), the component of NIH devoted to research on aging. The NIA will work with the Go4Life community on events and will highlight participating organizations and their activities on the campaign website.

"If we want to become a healthy and fit nation, we need to increase the number of Americans who are healthy at every stage of life," said U.S. Surgeon General, Regina Benjamin, M.D., M.B.A. "Go4Life provides older adults with the tools and resources to get moving and keep moving. With the release of the National Prevention Strategy, we are moving our health care system from a focus on sickness and disease to a focus on wellness and prevention."

The campaign developed from concerns that, despite proven health benefits, exercise and physical activity rates among older people are low. About 30 percent of people aged 45-64 say they engage in regular leisure-time physical activity. Only a quarter of those ages 65-74 say they do. And while experts say people age 85 and older, can benefit from exercise, only 11 percent of that age group report being active. At the same time, NIA noted, some older adults were contacting the Institute for guidance on kinds of exercises to do, indicating interest in becoming more active.

"You're never too old to increase your level of physical activity and exercise," says Richard J. Hodes, M.D., director of the NIA. "Go4Life is based on studies demonstrating the benefits of exercise and physical activity for older people, including those with chronic health conditions. This new campaign reaches out to older people who traditionally have not embraced exercise and shows them ways that even those with physical limitations may be able to exercise safely as well."

The research-based resources of Go4Life center on a colorful, interactive website (www.nia.nih.gov/Go4Life) providing information and motivation for exercise for individuals, families and friends, organizations, and health care professionals. The site features specific exercises, success stories, and free materials to motivate growing numbers of older people to start exercising and keep going. It even offers online virtual coaches to help motivate Go4Life participants. Many Go4Life materials are available in Spanish at http://go4life.niapublications.org/resources/spanish#espanol.

To develop Go4Life, NIA brought together some of the nation's leading experts on aging, exercise, and motivation. Over two years, the task force reviewed the research and worked with the institute to develop a book, "Exercise & Physical Activity: Your Everyday Guide from the National Institute on Aging." The campaign is based on the book.

Some specific benefits of exercise for health and aging include :

  • Fitness and cardiorespiratory health: In one study, moderately fit women and men had a 50 percent lower risk of type 2 diabetes, hypertension, coronary heart disease, obesity, and some cancers when compared with their low fit peers. High fit people obtained additional benefit, typically another 10-15 percent lower risk.
  • Reduced pain, better function with osteoarthritis: In a clinical trial of people age 60 and older with knee osteoarthritis, those who participated in an aerobic exercise or resistance exercise program reported less pain and better function than those in the group assigned to a health education program.
  • Preventing diabetes: Results from the NIH-sponsored Diabetes Prevention Program, which examines ways to prevent or delay the development of non-insulin-dependent diabetes, found that people over age 60 at high risk for diabetes reduced their risk by 71 percent by adopting a moderate exercise routine and a low-fat diet.

"An important part of active aging is being healthy and staying fit," says Assistant Secretary for Aging Kathy Greenlee, who heads the Administration on Aging at HHS. "I look forward to working with NIH and the growing number of campaign partners in the aging network to distribute to seniors around the country these tips on how to get active and stay active."

The NIA invites public and private organizations whose interests and activities involve health, aging and exercise to join the campaign. Agencies, organizations and companies on board as of today as initial Go4Life team members are:
