Solution To archive last years sponsors:
Click onTools -> Clear System Data, and check theDeactivate all Sponsorsoption, and pressConfirm. This will archive all the existing sponsors as inactive and will remove all sponsors from the public website.

Go toSponsors -> All &Click on 'edit' next to theSponsor nameyou want to deactivate
Locate the 'Sponsor Active?' field and set it toNOfrom the pull down menu
Hit 'Update' to save your changes.
As existing sponsors return to the event, they will create a sponsor record at the time they register online. You can Edit this record or just delete the new sponsor record, and activate the old record. In this way, you can save their logo and other information and not have to upload it again this year.
Click onSponsors -> All->Show Inactive Sponsors. This will show the list of all of last year's sponsors, which were archived as above.
Click on the 'activate' link next to each sponsor name as you want to re-activate them. They will then appear in the active sponsor list, and back on the main website under Sponsors.
