Upcoming Events 2018

Hi All.

Here's a list of events we're planning for 2018. Comments are welcome. And members are welcome to arrange your own events and post them on our website.

SGM 24 JANUARY
An important Special General Meeting will be held on January 24. Details have been mailed and posted.

BRUNCH
We hope to have the odd brunch along the way. The first one will probably be in March. Keep your eyes out for postings.

ANZAC DAY
The Australian Embassy normally invites both Kiwis and Aussies to an Anzac Day service.

The Southern Cross Club is hoping to organise a trip to visit Australian and New Zealand war graves in Denmark sometime close to Anzac Day.

CAMPING WEEKEND IN SWEDEN MAY 10 TO 12
On Ascension Weekend, May 10 to 12, we are organising a camping long weekend in Järnavik which is on the coast of Blekinge in Sweden (about 2½ hours drive from Copenhagen, or 3 3/4 hours by public transport). More details will follow.

TRAMPING IN SWEDEN THURSDAY 28 JUNE
I've (Simon) talked to quite a few members who're missing their tramping. So here's your chance:
Simon is organising a day tramp in eastern Skåne on Thursday 28 June. Bush, heath, hills, history, Skåne's highest waterfall etc etc. Details in Danish are found on vandrefuglene.dk. If you can't read Danish, contact me for details. This is a tramp arranged for another club, but you may join us.

SOUTHERN CROSS CLUB CAMPING WEEKEND 31 AUGUST TO 2 SEPTEMBER
Following the success of our last year's camping weekend we're looking for a site for this year's one.

CHRISTMAS PARTY SATURDAY 24 NOVEMBER
Keep this date clear! Party time! If we can find him even Santa will be there!

Cheers
Simon, on behalf of the committee

Kea Gym!

Cameras at Homer Tunnel caught kea moving traffic cones around! So the answer was to build a gym for them to try and keep them off the road!

SPECIAL GENERAL MEETING

Membership – Clarification
and
Notice of Meeting - Extraordinary General Meeting

There is some confusion regarding the Club’s membership list and mailing list which we are working hard to clarify. This message supercedes any previous messages on this issue.

The Committee has called an Extraordinary General Meeting for Wednesday 24th January 2018 at 6pm.
This meeting is being called to make necessary changes to the existing constitution, as well as to socialise a little.
We welcome all members to join us for this short but important meeting, after which we plan to get some take away food and a few liquid refreshments (costs to be shared).

* If you wish to become a member OR to confirm your membership, please note the following.

1. If you are, or have been, a member of the Southern Cross Club in Denmark, please send an email to committee@southerncrossclub.dk to confirm your membership. Note that at present, there is no subscription or joining fee.
PLUS
Advise us, before 10th January 2018, that you wish to attend the Extraordinary General Meeting.
OR
State that you WILL NOT attend the Extraordinary General Meeting.

2. If you are not a member but wish to join the club, we welcome you. Please send an email to committee@southerncrossclub.dk requesting membership. If you are an Australian or New Zealand citizen, please tell us that, otherwise please provide some supporting information outlining your connection with either Australia or New Zealand (which is required by the Club’s constitution). Note that at present, there is no subscription or joining fee.
PLUS
Advise us, before 10th January 2018, that you wish to attend the Extraordinary General Meeting.
OR
State that you WILL NOT attend the Extraordinary General Meeting.

3. If you have already clicked “Going” on the Facebook page, “Thanks” but that will NOT be enough. In accordance with the constitution, you will need to send an email as detailed in the first two options above.

4. The proposed changes to the constitution are summarised here.

Firstly, it is proposed to reduce the required number of members on the committee, reflecting the smaller membership of the club now compared with times past. This change is necessary to enable the club to function in the current conditions.

Secondly, a number of minor changes to the wording of various clauses are proposed to reflect the conditions of today, which includes such things as changes to electronic communication and financial management.

Thirdly, a number of other changes are proposed to clarify some of the Club’s functions, such as roles of the committee and committee members.

5. Further details, including the address for the meeting, will be sent to those who have been accepted as members of the Club (as per points 1 and 2 above).

Australian Passports

The Australian Embassy has expanded it's opening hours in Copenhagen due to the many people applying for passports at this time of year.

The 64 page is being discontinued because of the increased use of SmartGate and electronic visas.

Secretary

NICK CAVE AND THE BAD SEEDS

I wonder how many of you were lucky enough to hear Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds at the Arena on Friday? I was thinking afterwards that we should have arranged to meet up afterwards. Remember that members can also post on our website if you should have other good ideas in the future.
Cheers
Simon
