The 4th World Nomad Games will begin on Thursday at Iznik in western Turkiye after a two-year COVID-19 hiatus.

More than 3,000 traditional athletes from over 102 countries will take part in the event, which will be opened by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

The World Ethnosport Confederation, which works to raise awareness, revitalize and popularize traditional sports around the world, organizes the four-day competition on a 700,000 square kilometer area on the picturesque shore of Lake Iznik.

The 4th World Nomad Games themed “We are One: From Tradition to Future!” will host over 40 competitions in three different categories – Horse Riding, Wrestling and Archery. Each category will include several competitions unique in Turkey’s geography are.

For example, in horseback riding, there are two competitions, Kökbörü and Kökpar. In Kökbörü, mounted players attempt to place a goat or calf carcass in a gate.

The wrestling events on the other hand include traditional Turkish oil wrestling, Kazakh wrestling, Pehlivan wrestling and some others.

In addition to sports, the World Nomad Games celebrates traditional lifestyles, arts and gastronomy.

It will also host various activities related to traditional and performing arts, while hosting children’s events, playgrounds and even an ethno market.

The games aim to preserve the cultural and historical heritage of different peoples from all over the world and to strengthen intercultural communication, friendship and harmony.

The event will also contribute to strengthening Turkish cultural diplomacy as well as better recognition of Iznik around the world.

Preparations complete

Iznik, a city with a long historical and cultural heritage, is well prepared to host the world’s largest traditional games event.

It will welcome everyone from the head of state to the average citizen to the four-day event, which will also be televised by millions of people from around the world.

For visitors who want to enjoy the games up close, there will be a trailer park and camping sites for tents, giving people a taste of nomadic life.

The main venue will feature a 5,000-seat arena, while there will also be separate grandstands for wrestling and archery competitions.

In addition to the sports arena, there will also be experience zones with traditional food and drinks. It will also house an ethnic market or shopping area with traditional handicrafts, places of worship, campfire chats, archery training and equestrian areas, as well as fully equipped stables for hundreds of horses used in equestrian sports.

Speaking about the 4th World Nomad Games, Sports Minister Mehmet Muharrem Kasapoğlu said in a statement that this year’s competition will be a milestone.

“We will organize the largest traditional sports organization in the world. We see this meeting as a spirit of solidarity and a bridge that unites communities and nations that have a very strong interest in history, culture and values. We see this strengthening of solidarity as a milestone,” he said.

Improved investments in the fan experience at the National Hockey Center http://lakecityjournal.com/improved-investments-in-the-fan-experience-at-the-national-hockey-center/ Mon, 26 Sep 2022 09:33:37 +0000 http://lakecityjournal.com/improved-investments-in-the-fan-experience-at-the-national-hockey-center/

ST. CLOUD – Fans attending a hockey game at Herb Brooks National Hockey Center this season should notice a few key improvements.

St. Cloud State University has invested approximately $1.2 million in brand new LED video displays and significantly upgraded the sound system.
Director of the National Hockey Center Kory Portner says that the two end displays are technically the same size as the old ones.

There were static graphics for sponsors, then the static rating system, and then all of that stuck into the actual video ad, so the video board was smaller in our old system. Now we’ve taken the same footprint and the whole thing is an LED display. It’s basically just a giant TV screen.

In addition to the two end displays, there are new displays above the six entrances into the arena and four overhead displays. All 12 panels can be synchronized to display the same or different graphics.

He says that by adding more speakers and repositioning the old ones, the sound is more consistent throughout the arena.

They’ve moved some of the speakers to where they hang in the arena, the capacity has been doubled, so now I feel like we don’t need to push the volume to a certain level to try to fill any dead spots that we had the past.

Portner says that next season they plan to replace the entire lighting system with all-new LED lights.

According to Portner, this is the biggest upgrade that directly impacts the fan experience since the upgrades completed in 2012.

The rating and video system was last updated about 15 years ago and this is now the third different sound system they have.

In addition to SCSU’s men’s and women’s teams, the National Hockey Center is also the home stadium of St. John’s University. The women’s team has their home game against RPI this Friday, the men’s team’s home game is this Sunday against St. Thomas, and the Johnnies’ home game is November 10th against Concordia.

The Herb Brooks National Hockey Center was built 33 years ago.

Westminster is no longer a college, but receives a university award http://lakecityjournal.com/westminster-is-no-longer-a-college-but-receives-a-university-award/ Tue, 20 Sep 2022 00:01:34 +0000 http://lakecityjournal.com/westminster-is-no-longer-a-college-but-receives-a-university-award/

Westminster College will usher in its next era as Westminster University after the university’s Board of Trustees unanimously approved the change at a meeting last week. (Kristin Murphy, Deseret News)

Estimated reading time: 2-3 minutes

SALT LAKE CITY – Westminster College has called Salt Lake City home for almost 150 years and will now herald its next era as a full-fledged Westminster University.

“We went from a small collegiate preparatory academy in 1875 to a junior college and then a four-year baccalaureate institution in 1949,” said Westminster President Bethami Dobkin. “Since then we have grown in size, stature, activities and academic offerings. It is time for the next chapter of Westminster.”

The institution’s board of trustees unanimously approved the change in a meeting last week after Westminster presidents debated the university’s designation for nearly 20 years.

Westminster currently offers more than 50 undergraduate courses, 11 graduate courses and two doctoral courses, with more doctoral courses to start shortly.

“The transformation into Westminster University demonstrates our strengths and our journey as a small, comprehensive institution,” Dobkin said in a video announcing the change.

Although Westminster has garnered recognition at universities, Dobkin was adamant it will not change the longstanding institution’s size, campus culture, or core commitments.

“It will change the way people find us, get to know us and see the outstanding opportunities we offer at Westminster,” said Dobkin.

The latest US News and World Report college rankings revealed Westminster as the #12 university in the West and the #5 best value school.

“We will always be a place where students forge strong connections with some of the best faculty in the country and where a liberal arts foundation encourages leadership to think broadly, critically, collaboratively and in ways that solve complex problems and builds professional confidence,” said Dobkin.

Westminster aims to officially start as Westminster University in autumn 2023.

An FAQ page will be updated to keep the Westminster community informed as it becomes Westminster University.

The Indigenous Peoples Art Gallery and Café has a new home at 10 S. Gilbert St., where its founder, Dawson Davenport, strives to showcase a range of indigenous art in a state that takes its name from a Native American tribe.

The announcement was made on the Indigenous Peoples Art Gallery and Café Facebook page in late August.
