Day Tramp in Skåne, Sweden
I'll be leading a day tramp in the area around Brösarp in eastern Skåne for a group called Vandrefuglerne on June 28. You're welcome to join us. The tramp will include nature reserves and Skåne's highest waterfall.
We leave by train from Copenhagen's main station, meeting there at 8.15 am by the doors facing Vesterbrogade, and return to Copenhagen in the evening.
You'll need lots of water and enough food for lunch and dinner. And remember your passport!
The deadline to say you're coming is 6 pm on June 25, though we'd like to know earlier. If you want to travel on my Jojo card, which means a price of about Dkr 250 return instead of DSBs price of Dkr 320, let me know when you say you're coming. Include your mobile phone number and email address.
The coming weekend is our camping weekend, from Thursday to Sunday (or whatever part of that you may be able to make), at Jarnavik, Sweden. Yes, it's just a few days away to Kristi Himmelfart day (10th May), then be sneaky and take Friday off, then the weekend.
If you have not signed up (on our Facebook page) and have not booked a site, no problem. There is lots of space at the campground at Jarnavik, either with or without electricity. There are also huts available. Check the website and try to navigate around the Swedish information. If you have any queries, phone Hector (Club president) on 4116 1884. If you do not have access to a car, then public transport will get you to the vicinity, and we could arrange a pickup from there, so give us a call.
Hoping to see you there

Latvia 22 May
We have been invited to a talk by the Latvian ambassader, Kaspars Ozolins, whose term as ambassader comes to an end this summer. The title is "Latvia on the way to first centenial: Ambassador's view after 5 years in Denmark".
The talk will be given on May 22 at 7pm in Filipskirkens Menighedssal, Kastrupvej 57, 2300 København S. It will be in English, and it will be possible to ask questions.
So they can arrange enough tables and coffee you're asked to send a mail to kirsten.gjalbaek (at) gmail.com if you want to attend.
We received the invitation through KUKS.
The Australian Embassy has as usual invited us to an Anzac Day service. This year it will be held at dawn, followed by breakfast. It is necessary to register in advance (by April 20). The link to the details is http://denmark.embassy.gov.au/cpgn/anzac.html
Later many Kiwis and Aussies go on to the Southern Cross Pub where Anzac Biscuits are served.
New Zealand Oil and Gas
The New Zealand government has decided to prohibit all new sales of drilling licences for oil and gas off the New Zealand coast. Drilling will continue under the present 22 licences so oil will still be pumped up for about the next 30 years.

Add to the existing
Later nominations may be received if approved by a majority of the Committee.
Opportunities may be missed by insisting on nominating more than 3 weeks in advance, however we must guard against the possibility of an “ambush” at a GM ie. an orchestrated takeover that was not anticipated by the established members of the Club.
5.2. Clause 6 shall be changed by the addition of a clarification, as follows:
The Annual General Meeting (AGM) shall take place each calendar year by the end of May.
Add to the existing
Notice of Meeting must be communicated to members at least 5 weeks before the meeting date in order to comply with Clause 5 g. and Clause 11.
5.3. Clause 5 h. shall be changed by the addition of a clarification, as follows:
All positions in the committee are up for nomination and election at each AGM and may also be challenged at a Special General Meeting (SGM).

AGM AND SOCIAL GET-TOGETHER Wednesday 18 April, 2018
The AGM plus a general social get-together will be held on April 18, 2018.
We will meet from 1730, with the AGM starting at 1800 and finishing pretty
soon after. Then we will carry on wherever the wind takes us. Note that this
is at the Southern Cross Pub (our namesake - brothers in arms, or beer maybe).
Note that it is a non-smoking venue, we will have the upstairs section to
ourselves, happy hour bar prices, and the Club will provide a few snacks. We
can decide on dinner together - could possibly be to bring in some pizzas
(which the Pub will allow us to do).
AGENDA to come soon.
Note: We realise that this notice is coming to some of you rather late. We
have had the AGM posted on Facebook for some time, but because our website
was not functioning, we couldn't access our mailing list to send this notice
out. DanDomain have at last connected us with our database again after many
frustrating attempts to get them to sort out the problem.
We hope you will accept the late notice due to the circumstances, but if
anyone objects please let us know immediately. In that case we will find a
new date for the AGM, but still meet at the Southern Cross Pub for a social
We hope to see you there.
