The 2009 Looong Game



The Looong Games by Ken McCormick

The Looong Game Classic was played in Brooklyn just outside of Windsor Nova Scotia January 9th & 10th 2009. It was a marathon hockey game that lasted 24 hours that had great community spirit and support. The Dartmouth Rotary Club was instrumental in the success of the event with its membership involvement as well as finical support!

Rotarians Gord Gamble, Ken McCormick and Shawn McCormick played in the marathon and Don Penwell lined up all the club members to sell tickets collect food donations for Feed Nova Scotia at the door. A total team effort from the club.

The Dartmouth Rotary Club also hosted an information luncheon were all charities and sponsors were invited. This session helped answer questions and build up some hype and energy for The Looong Game Classic, the following charities were supported:

-$15,000 Hockey Atlantic helping underprivileged children play hockey
-$7,500 Dartmouth East Community Centre/Boys & Girls Club with The Dartmouth Rotary Club champing this donation
-$7,500 Feed Nova Scotia
-$6,000 Windsor Trust Fund

$36,000 in total!
