Happy New Year 2024

The Southern Cross Club wishes everybody a Happy New Year!
If you missed the NY fireworks at Sydney Harbour, or if you'd like to see it again, the ABC has it, here:

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2023-12-31/new-years-eve-celebrations-australia-2023/103275332

It is spectacular, as usual. And this year, more of Sydney Harbour is involved, and not just the Harbour Bridge.
Enjoy! ... with or without champagne ...

Cheers
John

Historical Walk in Lille Hareskov

You are all invited to Southern Cross Club's Historical Walk in Lille Hareskov on Sunday 13. August 2023.
Lille Hareskov is a very old forest; it has never been cultivated, and therefore it still contains a number of old stones, graves etc.

The walk will take us to see some old dolmen, which are graves dating back to the stone age, some ’rillesten’ which are stones with a groove cut into them, and also some old oak trees, including The Devil.
I will be your guide and tell you about the old graves and stones etc.

The walk will take about 2.5 hours, and we will mostly, but not always, follow the paths, so bring sturdy footwear.
The walk will finish at the Skovlyst Brewery, where we can have a beer, or softdrink. Members of The Southern Cross Club will get a beer for free.

We will meet at the parking lot on the Northern side of the Skovlyst Brewery at 14:00.
The Skovlyst Brewery is located at Skovlystvej 2, Hareskovby, 3500 Værløse.
For more information about Skovlyst, see www.bryggeriskovlyst.dk
If you use public transport: From Skovlyst there is less than 2 km to Hareskov station, and about 0.7 km to the nearest bus stop, bus 165. See Rejseplanen.

We hope to see lots of SCC members on August 13. You are welcome to bring your friends along too. And we'd like to know in advance if you plan to attend. Thanks.

On behalf of the Committee
John
