Islendingadunk is a sport where two combatants sit on a soap-lubricated plastic pole suspended over the water in Gimli Harbour. The object is to bat your opponent off the pole (and into the water) using a wet sack filled with sponge. Too much swing of the "slugger" and you'll end up in the lake. Too late of a start and you'll find yourself bobbing in the water in front of hundreds of onlookers.

*Participants compete at their own risk. The Icelandic Festival of Manitoba assumes no liability for injuries incurred.
