The annual MOOSE HUNT IS ON! 17 October 2009 Brisbane City Council has again contacted Swedes Down Under for their expert assistance. Moose are roaming the streets of Brisbane CBD, causing havoc in peak hour traffic and destroying the City Botanic Gardens. They even swim in the river and many City Cat passengers have had terrifying near-death experiences with the big beasts. The situation is untenable and the brave hunters in the Danish Club have again expressed their desire to help the Swedes. Kim Tvede has all the details. Last year the event started at 8 am at the Sporting Shooters Association of Australia, 292 Mount Petrie Road, Belmont. Afterwards, the teams celebrated with homemade Pea and Ham soup, crispbread with cheese, coffee and cakes – and FLAGG PUNSCH, courtesy of the Swedes.

Folk Dancers’ Special Event 31 July 2009 This initiative was suggested by the folk dancers and the club was happy to provide the venue and food. The theme for the evening was court dances including the Lancer and Princess Alexandrine Quadrille. The dancers were dressed in period ballroom outfits: the women looked beautiful and the men were so handsome. In between performances, guests participated energetically in the dancing, Alan was spotted on the floor dusting off his dancing shoes. Photo: Soren Hoimark And we received an email from the folk dancers: To: The Danish Association "Heimdal" Dear Friends Thank you very much for your co-operation at the Folk dancers special event 31 July 2009. The food was fantastic and we all had a great evening and good feedback. Also a big "Thank You" to the people involved in making the evening a great night. We know it is hard work for a lot of people and we would like you to know, it was very much appreciated. We hope we can do it again sometime in the future.

She was in the bathroom, putting on her makeup, under the watchful eyes of her young granddaughter, as she'd done many times before. After she applied her lipstick and started to leave, the little one said, "But Gramma, you forgot to kiss the toilet paper good-bye!" I will probably never put lipstick on again without thinking about kissing the toilet paper good-bye... 2. My young grandson called the other day to wish me Happy Birthday. He asked me how old I was, and I told him, 62. My grandson was quiet for a moment, and then he asked, "Did you start at 1?" 3. After putting her grandchildren to bed, a grandmother changed into old slacks and a droopy blouse and proceeded to wash her hair. As she heard the children getting more and more rambunctious, her patience grew thin. Finally, she threw a towel around her head and stormed into their room, putting them back to bed with stern warnings. As she left the room, she heard the three-year-old say with a trembling voice, "Who was THAT?" 4. A grandmother was telling her little granddaughter what her own childhood was like: "We used to skate outside on a pond. I had a swing made from a tire; it hung from a tree in our front yard. We rode our pony. We picked wild raspberries in the woods." The little girl was wide-eyed, taking this all in. At last she said, "I sure wish I'd gotten to know you sooner!" 5. A little girl was diligently pounding away on her grandfather's word processor. She told him she was writing a story. "What's it about?" he asked. "I don't know," she replied. "I can't read." 6. I didn't know if my granddaughter had learned her colors yet, so I decided to test her. I would point out something and ask what color it was. She would tell me and was always correct. It was fun for me, so I continued. At last, she headed for the door, saying, "Grandma, I think you should try to figure out some of these, yourself!" 7. When my grandson Billy and I entered our vacation cabin, we kept the lights off until we were inside to keep from attracting pesky insects. Still, a few fireflies followed us in. Noticing them before I did, Billy whispered, "It's no use Grandpa. Now the mosquitoes are coming after us with flashlights." 8. When my grandson asked me how old I was, I teasingly replied, "I'm not sure." "Look in your underwear, Grandpa," he advised, "mine says I'm 4 to 6." 9. A second grader came home from school and said to her grandmother, "Grandma, guess what? We learned how to make babies today." The grandmother, more than a little surprised, tried to keep her cool. "That's interesting," she said, "how do you make babies?" "It's simple," replied the girl. "You just change 'y' to 'i' and add 'es'." 10. Children's Logic: "Give me a sentence about a public servant," said a teacher. The small boy wrote: "The fireman came down the ladder pregnant." The teacher took the lad aside to correct him. "Don't you know what pregnant means?" she asked. "Sure," said the young boy confidently. 'It means carrying a child." 11. A grandfather was delivering his grandchildren to their home one day when a fire truck zoomed past. Sitting in the front seat of the fire truck was a Dalmatian dog. The children started discussing the dog's duties. "They use him to keep crowds back," said one child. "No," said another. "He's just for good luck." A third child brought the argument to a close. "They use the dogs," she said firmly, "to find the fire hydrants." 12. A 6-year-old was asked where his grandma lived. "Oh," he said, "she lives at the airport, and when we want her, we just go get her. Then, when we're done having her visit, we take her back to the airport." 13. Grandpa is the smartest man on earth! He teaches me good things, but I don't get to see him enough to get as smart as him! 14. My Grandparents are funny, when they bend over; you hear gas leaks, and they blame their dog. Thanks to Jørn Christoffersen for the laughs this month! Annual General Meeting 8 August 2009 The meeting was held at 36 Austin St Newstead and commenced at 2:10PM. Committee Members Present: President Søren Høimark, VP Alan Przybylak, Treasurer Lone Schmidt, Secretary Roy Schack, Peter Hansen, Jørgen Skov, Henrik Caspersen. Apologies: Lone Lambourne, Flemming Brinkmann, Kim Tvede. Minutes of Previous AGM: Read by the Secretary, moved by Sonja Burford, and seconded by Tom Larsen. Business Arising from Minutes: None Presidents Welcome and Report: Soren welcomed the members to the 2009 AGM and presented his report (see the full report on the next pages). Soren thanked the Committee for its commitment and support throughout the year. He also thanked the retiring Committee members, including Alf Berg, Benny and Ulla Uhlott, Lone Lambourne and Flemming Brinkmann. Treasurer’s Report: Treasurer Lone Schmidt read a summary of the Financials for the 2008/09 year, with a surplus of approximately $5,000 before capital expenditure (see the full report on the next pages). Neville Jolly has completed his review of the accounts for the year. The accounts were approved by Poul Tvede and seconded by Alf Berg. Kurt Christensen was appointed Chairperson for the purpose of electing a new Committee and extended a thank you to the Committee for a job well done. The elected committee for the 2009/10 year is as follows: President Soren Hoimark Peter Hansen Vice President Alan Przybylak Kim Tvede Treasurer Lone Schmidt Jorgen Skov Secretary Roy Schack Rick Caspersen Vivian Lindup Soren assumed the Chair as elected President and thanked Kurt. Soren asked the meeting to approve the appointment of a new auditor, which was duly given. The search for a new auditor will begin asap. General Business: The issue of entrance fees was raised by Poul Tvede. This garnered mixed response from the members. The issue of non members receiving free coffee was raised but was countered that all visitors to the club, members or not add some value to the club. Alf Berg suggested raising the annual membership fee. Live music was also raised as an issue for smorrebrod evenings, and whether or not the costs can be justified. The additional problem lies in the fact that not all members enjoy the noise. The Committee will look at entertainment on a case by case basis. Henrik raised the concept of Det Store Kolde Bord being shifted to afternoons with mixed response. Picnics were also suggested as a way of creating a social event. The members voted on increasing the membership fees to $70 for families and $45 for singles. The vote passed unopposed. Meeting concluded at 2:50pm. President’s Report at the Annual General Meeting 8 August 2009 I’m pleased to report that the 2008/09 club year was a very busy year both for general members and committee. Our activities included participation in Queensland Multicultural Festival, where committee and many general members joined forces to serve up thousands of æbleskiver and hotdogs, and a big thanks to all members who participated in the fun and also for donations. In addition to our traditional events we introduced a number of new events: The hugely popular Julestue where kids and adults enjoyed the fine art of making Christmas decorations, singing Danish Christmas carols, baking special Christmas cookies and decking the tree, plus we extended the Fastelavn celebrations with a follow on event same day – Paella Night, which was also well supported. Another new event was our Wine and Cheese Tasting, which was held as a joint event with the Swiss Club and included a Swiss cheese maker – also a very popular event, and as a new kids event we celebrated Bamses Fødselsdag, where heaps of teddy bears were appreciated in style and a huge amount of cake, hot chocolate and other goodies was consumed – mainly by the adults as the kids were too busy having a good time. We also participated in other Scandinavian events – Moose Hunt with the Swedish Club, and another Scandi Café including all Scandinavian clubs was held at the Finnish Club this time and we contributed with ‘smørrebrød’. Other new activity is an initiative by a group of parents establishing the Danish Playgroup and the club has provided the home for this activity Friday of every week, where parents and kids get together and play in Danish – great idea. Briefly on finances: Despite the loss of revenue from the church group we had as tenant up to July 2008, we have managed to attract other one-off tenants and we are still looking for long term tenants to increase the usage of our great facility. Several members have used the club for family functions – birthdays, weddings etc. and it is a great venue plus the very reasonable fee for the hall hire benefits the club. Overall we have a modest amount left over for the year after having paid all our costs, but the main thing is we are in the black and in good shape. In the end our goal is not to accumulate funds in our bank account but to ensure the club remains financially viable long term whilst offering members interesting events and a home for Danish traditions. A big THANK YOU to the Gaming Commission Benefit Fund, who approved our grant application for improvement of our roof, which has now been treated to increase insulation and hence conserve energy, as well as sealing up a number of leaks extending its life by 10 years. We have also grown the number of active members as many new members have joined over the past year, and needless to say we need to keep attracting new members as existing members move away from the area, so we need to keep growing, and the more active members we are, the better opportunities we have to enjoy interesting events. I would like to thank all committee members for all their good work over the last year, and I’m very pleased that most of the committee members have volunteered for another year and to see new faces joining up for next year. A special thanks to retiring committee members – some have served the club for many years and whilst not continuing on the committee they will still give us a hand when required. TREASURER’S REPORT – THE DANISH ASSOCIATION HEIMDAL INC. 1 JULY 2008 – 30 JUNE 2009 The club has done well in the past financial year with a surplus of approx $5,000 on all our activities before capital expenditure of approx $10,000. Our bar fridge was on its last legs and the Committee decided to replace it before it broke down. We didn’t have this option with the air conditioning in the kitchen and kids’ room, it simply broke down and needed to be replaced promptly. On the plus side, our participation in the QLD Multicultural Festival last year added just over $2,500 to the bottom line and bar sales were up. On the minus side, hall hire was down. It’s frustrating that we cannot find users for our hall as a steady income from hall hire would make a huge difference to us. Income from member events and Cafe Danmark remained steady with a slightly downward trend. The large difference in membership fees from last year is due to fees for the financial year being paid early in June 2008 and included in last year’s accounts. Costs remained steady, with council rates, insurance, council permit fees and electricity again accounting for over half or nearly 56% of our total costs. We have applied to the Brisbane City Council for a discount in our council rates and been granted the 25% discount available, which will reduce next year’s rates. Apart from the new bar fridge and air conditioning I mentioned before, the Committee has bought book cases for the upstairs library which is now a welcoming space for all members. Our auditor, Mr Neville Jolly, has completed his review of the accounts. Study & Stay in Australia? Your door to the best in Australian Education & Training….

His debut The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo has already made a significant impact in the US as well. There are two more novels in Stieg Larssson's Millennium series. But then there will be no more crime fiction written by Stieg Larsson. Ever. Find out why at the August meeting of the Scandinavian bookclub. Thank you to all who attended the first meeting of the Scandinavian bookclub in June. It was such an enthusiastic group - around 12 in all. This is great to see. It is planned to hold bokklubben meetings bimonthly. Each time two Scandinavian books will be suggested as discussion points for the following meeting. You may also choose to discuss whatever book you are presently reading, if you prefer. However, the group has decided to keep to reading and discussing Scandinavian authors if we can, and there are plenty of titles available for loan from the council libraries. I can send you an author list- just send me a request by email email@example.com The Danish club also has many books in Danish that can be borrowed and are available for your perusal at book-club meetings. Of course, you may read in English or your own language, whatever you prefer. Don’t let the language barrier stop you from attending our group!! Suggested reads for August Bookclub meeting Stieg Larsson’s first of his famous trilogy: The girl with the Dragon Tattoo Per Pettersen called “To Siberia”. (Historical fiction about German soldiers arriving in a small town in Jylland in WWII and its impact on a brother and sister) NEXT MEETING Café Danmark, Danish Club, Austin Street, Newstead Friday August, 28th August, 7.30 pm.
