Lorde

Lorde's performance at Roskilde Festival this year was one of the highlights of the festival! A few Kiwis and Aussies found each other afterwards under my NZ flag (reminder list: take a longer flagpole next time!)

SOUTHERN CROSS 50TH BIRTHDAY, MAY 6

It's time to celebrate!

The Southern Cross Club Denmark invites you to join us in celebrating 50 years of bringing Aussies and Kiwis together.

Our special guest Eleanor Bomholt was a founding member of the Southern Cross Club, and she has kindly accepted our request to give a speach on how is was to be so far from home way back then.

The evening will unfold with a club funded wine tasting competition, and we are also throwing on a few free beers, but if you want something exotic, then your also welcome to BYO...

We are having caters prepare a buffet dinner at the cost of 100kr per person (children under 12 half price).

As this is a private event, space is limited, so the guest list is limited to 20 adults, and children under twelve are sitting separately...

This will be held at Mark's. Let him know if you're coming. If you don't have his contact details or address, send a mail to the committee at committee@southerncrossclub.dk

Cheers

General Meeting

Just a short reminder, that it is not too late to register your attendance (sounds a bit formal :-)) at the SCC General Meeting this Sunday, 27th November, from 1430, at Mark and Lotte's, Bernstorffsvej 5, 2900 Hellerup.

Thus far, we have had positive replies from 5 members, so I'm rather hoping that a few more of you can make it, as it would be great to breathe new life into the Club, if at all possible.

So double check those calendars - maybe the out-laws can wait another week? Maybe the lawn-mowing can wait until next year? Maybe the kids don't really want you shouting at the soccer referee from the sidelines after all?

Hope to see a good and enthusiastic turnout on Sunday.
Cheers,
Mark Rogers - SCC Denmark Chairman

Skt Hans / Midsummer Gettogether / Farewell to Dave

Hi all,

As I'm sure you all know by know, every year on the evening of the 23rd of June, all over Denmark witches are burnt on bonfires.

To commemorate the occasion, the Danes, true to their viking roots, celebrate by grilling assorted meat over a strange black substance called charcoal, until such point as the meat on the grill closely resembles the charcoal underneath, then it is eaten with great relish (and tomato sauce, remoulade, etc.).

It's been a few years now since the SCC had a Sankt Hans do, so we thought we should that this year we should join in.

As is often the case, we will be holding the event at Mark and Lotte's, on Saturday the 25th of June, from 1700 / kl. 17 / 5 p.m. (please email or FB message for the address, if you don't know it already)

The food format will be the usual SCC rules, where we would ask everyone to bring their own choice of meat for the barbie (we use a substance that gives a clean blue flame, called gas....), plus a bowl of salad or a dessert to share. Also, should there be any consumers of alcohol among us (it has been known on occasions), if they could bring their own favourite beverage, that would be marvellous (we will have an esky / chully-bun with ice in, to keep them cold).

The club will supply soft drinks / water / juice (for the kids, obviously), some sausages and hot dog buns (again for the kids, as I'm sure you guessed), a fire, trampoline, swings, small swimming pool, hot tub, slip'n'slide (yes, I am old enough to remember them), and some chairs. Obviously, if the usual downpour happens, we'll be able to take shelter inside instead.

If any kids or adults would like to use the pool or hot tub, bathers / swimmers / cozzies / togs and a towel would be a good idea - but a short plea to the menfolk - please refrain from smuggling budgies into the garden.....

Please let us know if you can come, along with how many adults and kids in your party (so we know how many snags to buy, and if we need to score some extra chairs for the evening) - RSVP by Thursday the 23rd of June.

Looking forward to seeing as many old and new members as possible (and hoping that the weather holds)

------

Just a quick update about the SCC Sankt Hans barbie on the 25th of June - as some of you are no doubt aware, ex-club president and current treasurer, Dave McKenzie, is after more years in DK than he cares to remember, or indeed admit to, moving back to the land of the long white cloud - that's right folks, the lure of grandkids, steinlager and a full NZ pension proved too much to resist!

So the Sankt Hans party is now also officially a farewell event for Dave, so I hope we can manage a good turnout to see him off.

We'll also be looking for another treasurer, so if anyone would like to volunteer until such time as we can pull our collective fingers out and have a proper AGM, please let me know.

So until the 25th, be safe and watch out for those witches - they're a bit nervy at this time of year.......

Cheers,
Mark Rogers
Chairman, Southern Cross Club, Denmark

Icetralia

Hi there,

I’m just writing to let you know that a comedy show featuring an Aussie expat is coming to Copenhagen on Aril 23. If you know of Aussie expats in Denmark who might be interested in this show please send them the information.

Icetralia is an international comedy event that features two different comedians from two very different islands.

Jonathan Duffy (AU) and Hugleikur Dagsson (IS) bring you everything you want in a comedy show; observations, obscenities and musical numbers.

Jonathan Duffy is an Australian born comedian and cabaret performer who moved to Iceland to avoid poisonous spiders and ex husbands. His comedy is like himself; gay, Australian and a bit desperate.

Hugleikur Daggson is a relatively talented Icelandic cartoonist who turned to stand up comedy to avoid real work. This brought him local fame, some money and a couple of diseases. His comedy is like himself; filthy, friendly and slightly autistic.

Icetralia will be at Nordatlantens Brygge (Strandgade 91, 1401 Kbh,K) on April 23 from 21:00.

Tickets are available through billetto.dk

Thanks for any time you have taken to read this

Regards

Jonathan Duffy
