Lögberg-Heimskringla

						4 • Lögberg-Heimskringla • Friday 8 April 2005

The importance of the sponsors

Steinþór Guðbjartsson

Managing Editor

In the last few years the Ice-

landic Open Golf Tourna-

ment has not only been the

main fundraising event for Lög-

berg-Heimskringla — it has

been a veritable lifesaver.

Once again, Dan Johnson

has called his group of volun-

teers together to organize yet

another Icelandic Open, to take

place in Gimli, MB Friday,

July 29. For the fifth year in a

row, the tournament will swing

in the íslendingadagurinn, the

Icelandic Festival of Manitoba,

held annually in Gimli the first

weekend in August.

As before, 36 teams of

four golfers, 144 golfers alto-

gether, can participate in this

annual event. Some have taken

part in the event every year and

they know they have to register

early because the tournament

has always sold out. This is a

tournament they don't want to

miss.

The main reason for the

good turnout is that while hav-

ing fun, the golfers want to

support Lögberg-Heimskring-

la. They play 18 holes of golf

and the Texas Scramble format

suits everyone, the professional

player as well as the novice.

And everyone gets a prize.

In   the   past,   individuals

PrewwUMÍ l)y ilie liifdjeí^; - Hi-im-kiiiififii

and companies have made this

fundraiser possible. Different

levels of sponsorship — entries,

prize donations, hole sponsor-

ship ($300), silver sponsor-

ship ($ 1,000), gold sponsorship

($2,500), and platinum spon-

sorship ($5,000) — have been

well received, and the paper is

grateful for the generous sup-

port.

"The sponsors are of vital

importance," says Don Lindal,

Co-Chair of the organizing

committee. And he is right —

because without them the Ice-

landic Open Golf Tournament

would not exist.

Fourmen, staff andstudents,

at the University of Manitoba

started using the term Icelandic

Open for their golf competi-

tions more than two decades

ago. They were young and ea-

ger, started at the golf course in

Hecla, MB, and tried different

golf courses, mainly in Mani-

toba, for their Icelandic Open.

However, they had no sponsors

and not only did the Icelandic

Open disappear from the tour

but the golfers parted and have

not been together since. One is

in lceland, another one in BC

and two in Manitoba. They had

to give up the sport they loved,

but lately some of them started

playing the game again.

In 1998, the Vatnabyggð

Club of Saskatchewan started

its Icelandic Open. Lögberg-

Heimskringla has presented the

Icelandic Open in Manitoba

since2001.

Some golfers never leave

their golf clubs out of sight and

practice their swing indoors, or

where they can play the sport

all year around. Others look

for their golf clubs as soon as

the snow disappears and prac-

tice wherever possible with the

summer tournaments in mind.

The possibilities are end-

less — but there is only

one Icelandic Open pre-

sented by Lögberg-Heims-

kringla. And it keeps people to-

gether.
