2020 Sports for Health - CanceledHeld at Land of the Vikings 1978 - 2019
Sports for Health
Sports for Health at Land of the Vikings (LOV) has been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This was to be the last year that Sport For Health was to be held at LOV due to the planned closure. However, current events have hastened the closing. We are working to find another venue for the 2021 Sports For Health event. Stay tuned.
Land of the Vikings
This is where we held our events. Land of the Vikings (LOV) was the cultural and recreational center of the Sons of Norway – District Three. Land of the Vikings is located on 150 acres in a peaceful valley in Northeastern Pennsylvania and is surrounded by 5000 acres of state game land.
Sons of Norway – District Three could no longer sustain LOV operations and was going to shutter the lodge mid summer 2020. The impact of government mandated shutdowns brought about by the pandemic in early 2020 hastened the closing and canceled all activities.
For more than 30 years, LOV had been the site of Sports for Health and Ski for Light events. With heavy hearts we bid farewell to a treasured venue. But we will recall with fondness the picturesque backdrop, rustic charm, and wonderful memories of shared activities in the lodge and on the surrounding trails.
