Christian Den Fjerdes Laug


Norsk humr2 Once again, we had the pleasure of seeing many Norwegians in the Cellar. They are always god company, with a lot of humor and god spirit.

The participants came from Kristiansand, Stavanger and Sarpsborg, and all, but one, had survived the voyage over the sea!

Our treasurer was very happy, having counted the money in the “cashbox” after the sale of our “pin”.Norsk humr1

Our Gala diner, consisting of red sausages, beer and potato juice, was enjoyed with great pleasure.

After the diner, some twenty descendants from “Churchill Gruppen”, the first Danish resistance group, arrived. 

They stayed for a few moments, the Chief Bencher briefly told the story about the young boys, who had the same status in Denmark, as Max Manus had in Norway.

Before we ended, our “Twoman band” played, and we had a “singalong” together.

Again, a nice and cheerful, inaguration in the Cellar

On April 26th twenty-eight students from the course were admitted as new members of the Guild. They represented fourteen different nationalities, such as Finland, Ukraine, Canada etc.

As usual with Unmilpoc it was a nice initiation, where students as well as their instructors had a couple of good hours together, with red sausages, potato juice and beer.

Before the party entered Duus’s Winecellar, they had been welcomed by the municipality at the Town Hall just opposite the winecellar.

IMG 4994On Saturday 11th of February we had a real nice inaIMG 5122uguration of 17 persons, coming from a local firm and from Aalborg guide association.

In spite of, that we started early at 09.30, everyone was bright and awake, even the Benchers!

It was the first inauguration in 2023. The last was on October 20th so we wondered if we were a little “rusty”, but everything went fine, except from minor details.

Even the “City Walk” went fine, and our tree was duly watered with beer. (Having been without almost three months!)

The inauguration ended with a little “sing along” led by our two troubadours.
