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.
Pub Evening at Globen (note new venue)
Our monthly pub evening will be held on Friday 10 May. As there's football at our usual venue (The Globe) we're holding this month's pub evening at Café Globen, which is owned by a Danish travellers' club (and is not to be confused with The Globe!). It's quite an apt choice for us, who come from the other side of the world!
Café Globen is at Turesensgade 2B near H. C. Ørstedsparken and within walking distance of both Nørreport and Vesterport Stations as well as a myriad of bus routes. We'll be there at 7.30pm. Look out for the flags. Or if you want to come earlier there's happy hour from 3pm to 6pm!
Remember that we have a pub evening on the 2nd Friday of every month.
Fat Freddy's Drop
Wellington band Fat Freddy's Drop are again visiting Copenhagen! They play in Stor Vega on October 8. Their concerts are normally sold out here, so get in on www.vega.dk
and buy your tickets (265kr). There're usually quite a bunch of Kiwis there when they play (including yours truly).
Anzac Day BBQ Saturday May 4
Mark and Lotte would like to know if there is anyone interested in coming round to their place for a belated anzac day bbq on Saturday the 4th of May - originally it was intended to be a southern cross club event, but dave couldn't get the newsletter out on time, so now they've just decided to invite people round themselves.
The plan is to have a few drinks from around kl. 15, then crank up the barbie about 16-1700 ish. Sounds like the weather will be good for a change, so the kids will have a chance to enjoy the swings and trampoline outside. They may even try to get a small fire going in the outdoor fireplace - damper and marshmallows anyone?
As it's not a club event, they thought it would be easiest to make it a BYO barbie - maybe bring a bowl of salad or similar to share, plus whatever meat you'd like.
Please feel free to ask any friends, etc. along as well - the more the merrier.
To get the address and to let us know if you can come - RSVP by Friday the 3rd by email to committee@(the name of the club, all three words as one word).dk
Mark and Lotte look forward to seeing anyone who can make it.
Here's a letter to the editor I sent to "Information" re Marie Krarups blog on NZ. If you don't understand Danish as least read the following link: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10876228
I "Folk" på Informations bagside tirsdag den 9. april omtales den forargelse Marie Krarup har vækket i New Zealand med hendes blog om hendes Maori velkomst. Jeg vil gerne gøre Dansk Folkeparti en tjeneste ved at foreslå, at når de er færdige med at bygge deres mur af Lego klodser rundt om Danmark for at holde den stygge verden, og især indvandrere, ude, at de sørger for at holde sig selv indenfor muren! Så undgår de den skræk det er for dem at møde fremmede kulturer. Og samtidig vil de gøre Danmark en stor tjeneste!
Men det er også farligt, at Danmark prøver at lade som om Marie Krarup er en isoleret ignorant i dansk politik, når den type meninger hun har, desværre er blevet så udbredt i landet. Alle burde læse Rune Hjarno Rasmussens indlæg i NZ Herald den 9. april, som findes her: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10876228,
og som er det meste fornuftigte, jeg har læste om fadæsen.
Med venlig hilsen
