ANZAC DAY 25 APRIL, AGM, Pizza etc UPDATE!

Hi Everyone,

ANZAC DAY, Thursday 25 April! Keep that evening free!

Venue: Trows, Vesterbrogade 125, who have kindly let us borrow their back
room.

The plan is:
6 pm: Gourmet Pizza for those who would like to come and eat together.
7 pm: AGM
After the AGM: ANZAC DAY: we remember, a few words, Anzac biscuits.
Then we socialise and open the back room for other guests.

If you want to come for pizza drop us a line at
committee@southerncrossclub.dk We require a deposit of 50 kr
to be paid by midnight Tuesday 23 April for those eating pizza. Details of
how to pay will be sent to you when we receive your email. You'll get the 50
kr back, and in fact won't pay anything as the club will pay for the pizzas.
The pizzas will come from Leo's and are Italian. We eat them in the back
room at Trows.

AGM: If it suits you better come at 7 pm for the AGM. We'd like to know if
you're coming, but you can also just turn up. New committee members would be
very welcome. If you don't have time for that help to organise an event
would also be welcome. But come to the AGM in anyway: you don't have to
commit yourself to anything. We'll just be glad to see you.

You can also pop in after the AGM, but we would like you at the AGM so we are
sure of having a quorum.

Trows is a Scottish craft beer bar. Their motto: "Scottish Beers, Danish
Hygge". We can take our own food in, but we're obliged to buy our drinks at
the bar.

Looking forward to seeing you!

Simon
Club President

Pre Christmas Pub Evening, Bartof Cafe, Friday 8 December 6.30 pm

We're afraid there'll be no Christmas Party this year, but we will be meeting for a pre-Christmas pub evening. And if our treasurer comes the first drink for members may even be on the club.

The venue: Bartof Café, Nordre Fasanvej 46, Frederiksberg. It's just a few minutes walk from Fasanvej Metro Station.

I have tried to invite Santa along. As there's no email on North Pole I've written via Post Danmark. As all us Kiwis and Aussies know, Santa lives at North Pole. But Post Danmark keeps sending my letters to Greenland, so he doesn't receive them!

We hope to see as many of you as possible. Bring a bit of Christmas cheer. Make new friends and see old friends.

Bartof has a great choice of beers, not to mentions whiskey and such things. You can even get a bite to eat.

Looking forward to seeing you all!

Simon
President

Day Tramp in Sweden

On 28 September I'm arranging a tramp (about 10 to 12 km) in a coastal area Sweden for Vandrefuglene. At the moment we have a few spare places. Details are found in Danish at vandrefuglene.dk in the calender. You need to book and pay transport beforehand, and on 19 September at the latest. Transport costs DKK 250. If you want to go by car we start and finish at different places so you'll need to find your own way back to your car. Contact Simon 20 94 98 five2.

MEET YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS OVER DRINKS and AGM: 22 JULY 2022

Hi to both our new and old members,

We have a lot of new (and even some old) members we've never met, so 7 pm at
the Southern Cross Pub is our chance to all meet up! Do come along and join
the party! And welcome our new members!

Just as we thought we were getting the club back on keel, corona came along
and closed us down. Now is our chance to get things going again. But it
depends on you coming along.

Remember that the website and the Facebook group are there for you. Don't
wait for the committee to post. All members can post. Having a party? Tell
us about it. Want to get a group together to hear a Kiwi or Aussie rock
group or opera singer: post it. Want help with the Danish bureacracy? Maybe
someone can help.

Got a little bit of time on your hands and some good ideas? Stand for the
committee!

We were optimistic after our AGM in 2019, but after a long period with
corona the following (edited) letter sent out before that meeting is still
relevant:


"Southern Cross Club
Letter to members

Dear friends

We need your support if we are to survive!
The Southern Cross Club has been operating for over 50 years in Denmark, but the last decade has been pretty quiet. However it is not for lack of effort on the part of the present Committee, who took up the gauntlet a couple of
years ago and put a lot of time and effort in, including updating the
Constitution to lay a firm platform for what we hoped would be a
reawakening. That reawakening has not made a big bang, and we struggle on
with pretty small turnouts to our few events. We ask ourselves the question
– “Is this Club still viable?” in this era of social media and increased
mobility. The answer is generally a firm “Yes”

We believe that a Club such as the Southern Cross Club provides opportunity
for more personal contact, for ongoing friendships, in a more effective way
than a Meetup group or Facebook group or the like.
But we need a critical mass of supporters to keep the interest level high.

At present, we don’t have that, partly due to some communication problems
that have beset us eg non-functioning website (now rectified), emails being
rejected (now operating). We hear lots of interest from potential new
members, and former members, but too few turn up to our events.

So………… PLEASE come along to the AGM, where you have the choice of treating
it as just a social event, or of participating in the meeting itself (which
should be short). Then have your say as to what sort of events you would
like to participate in.

We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday 22nd June at 19:00 at our
namesake, the Southern Cross Pub (upstairs).
Regards to all
Committee"

AGM and post-Corona Get-together Venue

The venue for our next gathering and AGM has been confirmed: the Southern Cross Pub (upstairs bar), Løngangstræde 37, near Copenhagen Town Hall and easily accessed by public transport.

Note the date in your calendar: Wednesday 22 June. We start with the AGM at 7 pm, followed by drinks and socialising. Please let us know by email (committee@southerncrossclub.dk) if you are coming, so we have an idea of numbers.

The club has been rather dormant the last couple of years due to corona, but now we are rearing for action again!

Come along and meet other members and give the club a boost with your inspiration. We also welcome new committee members. It doesn't require too much: just an occasional meetup to plan events.

Please make the effort to come. We hope to see as many of you as possible.

Simon
Secretary
on behalf of the Committee
