SR fékk treyju Fálkanna ađ gjöf
Eitt af ţeim liđum sem tóku ţátt í Iceland Invitational mótinu um helgina var Westmount-Montreal liđiđ frá Kanada. Í fórum sínum voru ţeir međ repliku af treyju Fálkanna sem Brian Johannesson í Kanada vildi fćra Skautafélagi Reykjavíkur á mótinu. Norman Richer, fyrirliđi W-M, afhenti Birni Örvar, formanni íshokkídeildar SR, treyjuna. Brian er sonur Konnie Johannesson úr hinu frćga liđi Fálkanna sem vann Ólympíugulliđ fyrir Kanada í íshokkí á Ólympíuleikunum í Antwerpen 1920. Fálkarnir voru synir íslenskra inflytjenda sem fluttu til Kanada í lok 19. aldar. Saga Fálkanna er einstök og stórmerkileg sem einhvern tímann verđur gerđ betri skil. Ţetta er mikill heiđur sem Brian sýnir íshokkí hér á landi en treyjunni verđur komiđ fyrir á góđum stađ til sýnis í Skautahöllinni í Laugardal. Skautafélag Reykjavíkur vill ţakka Brian kćrlega fyrir ţessa höfđinglegu gjöf.

SR receives Falcons jersey as gift
One of the teams that took part in the Iceland Invitational tournament over the weekend was the Westmount-Montreal team from Canada. They brought a replica of the Falcons jersey from Brian Johannesson in Canada who wanted to give it to Skautafélag Reyjavíkur at the tournament. Norman Richer, W-M team manager, gave the jersey to Björn Örvar, representative of the SR ice hockey division. Brian is the son of Konnie Johannesson of the famous team the Falcons, who won the Olympic gold medal for Canada in ice hockey at the Olympic Games in Antwerp in 1920. All but one of the Falcons players were sons of Icelandic immigrants who moved to Canada in the late 19th century. The story of the Falcons is unique and amazing and later it will be told in detail. This is a great honour which Brian is showing to hockey here in Iceland. The jersey will be displayed prominently at Skautahöllin in Laugardalur. Skautafélag Reykjavíkur would like to thank Brian kindly for this magnificent gift.
