Four hundred and fifty retarded and multiple handicapped people are expected to arrive from towns throughout Idaho for the competition. Local volunteer coaches and chaperones, plus coaches accompanying each team will increase the total .number of people participating in the Olympics to about 550. This will be the fifth winter state meet held in Idaho. Last year's winter games were held at Northwest Nazarene College, Nampa, with 400 contestants, and coaches. ; The base will provide the facilities for the actual competition, as well as the various clinics, designed to provide the Olympians with things to do when they aren't competing. ' The Olympic events, gym-' rtastics, and wrestling will be held in the base junior high school; basketball in the base gym, and swimming in the base indoor pool. The clinics include a Self- Concept Fair, bowling, arts and crafts, tours of the base, and "quiet games and activities in the base recreation center. There will also be a fire safety display by the base fire department. '· The three^ay state event will begin Thursday, Feb. 20, with registration for all contestants. The preliminary events are scheduled for Friday morning beginning with the opening ceremonies at 8:30 a.m. Following the opening ceremonies, p r e l i m i n a r y competition will start, continuing until 5 p.m. Friday night is exhibition night with demonstrations of , floor hockey, basketball, wrestling and gymnastics scheduled from 7 to 10 p.m. in the base gym. The finals in each area of competition are scheduled for Saturday, starling at 8:30 a.m., and ending around noon. Closing ceremonies will be in the base gym at 1 p.m. All Olympic events are open to the public. The air base is ten miles west of the town of Mountain Home.
