Welcome to the Southern Cross Club
The Southern Cross Club is a social club for Aussies and Kiwis living in Denmark.
Our goal is provide our members with a network, organise get-togethers and events where we, as a club,
can have some fun and keep in touch with what's going on downunder.
If you're a Kiwi or an Aussie living here in, or on your way to, Denmark,
you're welcome to keep an eye on what's going on here on our website - but we'd rather you joined :-)
The membership fee (both single and family) is pretty reasonable really,
and we'll not only keep you up to date on our social events, but you'll also be entitled to discounts.
Basically it comes down to your level of participation - like all things - and how much
you are willing to enjoy the club and the activities we organise.
Make sure you sign up NOW so you're not left out.
By signing up you'll be able to meet people from home,
share your wisdom throughout our community as well as receive our regular
club emails with the latest in club news and events.
We ask that our members pay a subscription. Singles 100 kr, Family or Couples 180 kr and members from Funen,
Jutland and Sweden 75 kr.
This covers our basic costs for the administration of the Club including newsletters,
internet and supplements to some of our events. We also ask that our members get involved in our activities and
maybe inspire and motivate us to other activities.
All monies to The Club should be paid to the Clubs account
registration number 1551 account number 3046613.
Day Tramp in Skåne, Sweden
I'll be leading a day tramp in the area around Brösarp in eastern Skåne for a group called Vandrefuglerne on June 28. You're welcome to join us. The tramp will include nature reserves and Skåne's highest waterfall.
We leave by train from Copenhagen's main station, meeting there at 8.15 am by the doors facing Vesterbrogade, and return to Copenhagen in the evening.
You'll need lots of water and enough food for lunch and dinner. And remember your passport!
The deadline to say you're coming is 6 pm on June 25, though we'd like to know earlier. If you want to travel on my Jojo card, which means a price of about Dkr 250 return instead of DSBs price of Dkr 320, let me know when you say you're coming. Include your mobile phone number and email address.
The coming weekend is our camping weekend, from Thursday to Sunday (or whatever part of that you may be able to make), at Jarnavik, Sweden. Yes, it's just a few days away to Kristi Himmelfart day (10th May), then be sneaky and take Friday off, then the weekend.
If you have not signed up (on our Facebook page) and have not booked a site, no problem. There is lots of space at the campground at Jarnavik, either with or without electricity. There are also huts available. Check the website and try to navigate around the Swedish information. If you have any queries, phone Hector (Club president) on 4116 1884. If you do not have access to a car, then public transport will get you to the vicinity, and we could arrange a pickup from there, so give us a call.
Hoping to see you there

Latvia 22 May
We have been invited to a talk by the Latvian ambassader, Kaspars Ozolins, whose term as ambassader comes to an end this summer. The title is "Latvia on the way to first centenial: Ambassador's view after 5 years in Denmark".
The talk will be given on May 22 at 7pm in Filipskirkens Menighedssal, Kastrupvej 57, 2300 København S. It will be in English, and it will be possible to ask questions.
So they can arrange enough tables and coffee you're asked to send a mail to kirsten.gjalbaek (at) gmail.com if you want to attend.
We received the invitation through KUKS.
The Australian Embassy has as usual invited us to an Anzac Day service. This year it will be held at dawn, followed by breakfast. It is necessary to register in advance (by April 20). The link to the details is http://denmark.embassy.gov.au/cpgn/anzac.html
Later many Kiwis and Aussies go on to the Southern Cross Pub where Anzac Biscuits are served.
New Zealand Oil and Gas
The New Zealand government has decided to prohibit all new sales of drilling licences for oil and gas off the New Zealand coast. Drilling will continue under the present 22 licences so oil will still be pumped up for about the next 30 years.
