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

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.
