Pub Evenings

The next two pub evenings will be held on September 13 and November 8 at Café Globen, Turesensgade 5B, near Oerstedsparken and between Noerreport and Vesterport Stations. Come along and meet some fellow Aussies and Kiwis.
Our pub evenings are normally held monthly, but the second Friday of October is Kulturnat in Copenhagen. You could maybe look for others to experience it with you via this forum.

Shipping personal belongings from New Zealand

Does anyone know anything about shipping personal belongings from NZ to DK? About who does it? And how to find a safe, reliable and not too expensive way to do it.
Alternatively is anyone else in the same situation? It might be cheaper for us to ship our things together.

SANKT HANS 23 JUNE 2013

SANKT HANS

'We have found a witch - may we burn her?' - Yes, it's that time of year
again in Denmark, where witches get burnt to honour Midsummer, so why not
join in and combine the best of both cultures, by having a barbie and a
bonfire?

After the success of the SCC (Belated) Anzac Day Barbie, Mark and Lotte
would like to invite as many SCC members as possible to their place on
Sunday June 23rd, from about 1600, with barbie around 1700-ish, and lighting
the fire (and the witch) around 19-2000 (a little earlier than traditional
for DK, to be kind to the 'kids' present).

Once again, it'll be a BYO barbie - bring your own meat and drinks (and
maybe a chair, if possible) plus a plate/bowl of salad to share. Mark and
Lotte will, like last time, provide some snags/hot dogs for the kids,
marshmallows for the fire (once it's died down a little) and maybe some
damper dough. With any luck, the only thing we'll be burning apart from
witches is.......?

Please email the SCC committee email for
address details, and RSVP by Friday June 21st.

PUB EVENING 14 JUNE 2013

PUB EVENING
Our next pub evening is on Friday 14 June at Café Globen, the travellers'
club pub 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. If you want to
come earlier there's happy hour from 3pm to 6pm! If you want to buy
takeaways from any of the nearby takeaway places you're welcome to take them
in and Globen will lend you knives and forks or whatever to eat them.

There was a good turnout last month, so we hope for a repeat of the success
this month.

Remember that we have a pub evening on the 2nd Friday of every month. The
plan now is to hold them regularly at Café Globen, but check our website in
case of any changes.

Cheers
Simon

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.

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.

Cheers
Simon

Marie Krarup

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
Simon

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.
