Club Night for March took us to the Dubliner to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. A great turn out and good mix of old and new.
Some updates from the Canadian Club:
First, at our board meeting in January, Janette Fjeldstad announced that she is leaving the board. Janette has been an invaluable board member and was instrumental in the merger of the Canadian Women’s Club and Canadian Club of Norway. Since the merger, Janette has sat as the secretary to our board as well as organized many Christmas Dinner’s that we have very much enjoyed at the Official Residence. Janette has been an integral member of the board and has contributed greatly to the clubs ongoing operations. We will miss her greatly. We want to thank Janette for her services to our club and hope that we continue to see her out at our events.
Second, we have a new ambassador. David Sproule reports for duty this week and will be taking over the spot left vacant when John Hannaford returned to Canada earlier. We have had no indication as to what changes the club can expect, but we hope to meet with him as soon as possible. We are also trying to arrange an Information Evening with him and his colleagues from the Embassy as well. We will keep you informed of this as soon as we are able to set something up.
Club Night was held at Fru Burum's on December 18th. Good to see many out for our last event of the year!
We lost a dear friend and co-founder of our club, Arne Bruheim this week. Arne passed away on November 14th. We miss you greatly, Arne.
Club Night on November 13th was at 3 Brødre. Out fellow Canadian and our favourite piano man, Barry Colson was at his best once again.
Halloween Party was held on Sunday October 28th. A great success and good to have it back. A huge thanx goes out to Suzanne, Brian and Daniele for organizing the party this year and many are already looking forward to next years event.
Christmas Dinner for members only will be held December 4th at the former Ambassador Residence. Come out for one last party at this beautiful house.
Club Night for October was a nice evening at the Dubliner. Great to see so many out on such a rainy night in Oslo.
Club Night for September was at Jacob Aall - Majorstua on September 13th. We were a small crowd but nice to see some new faces as well.
Eline Fjeldheim is leaving the Embassy this week and will be moving on to remember the woman on the tractor at Canada Day. I know the kids will remember her. But she did so much more than that, helping our club with events at the OR and elsewhere. We appreciate all the help that Eline has given us as well as her friendship. I hope that she will continue to be part of our Canadian Club in Norway.
Club Night for August was a nice summer evening outdoors at Lekter’n at Aker Brygge on Tuesday, August 14th. Good to see the turn out and meet some new faces as well.
Club Night for July was a good group at Fru Burums. The weather was not great but such is Norway.
Canada Day! turnout was a bit disappointing because of the weather, only 14 brave soles showed up at Frogner Park for our picnic. Hopefully next year we can have the tents and barbecues back in action.

Club Night April Club Night, was held at 3 Brødre on April 10th. Southern American influence was the theme of the evening before our friend and fellow Canadian Barry began playing fot the evening. Hard to imagine how we miss Gordon Lightfoot and Joni Mitchell so much.

Information Evening without the Ambassador. Our information evening was a intimate gathering but turned out to be very successful and interesting. Thanks goes to Eugenie Panitcherska from the Embassy for giving us and update on events in Canada as well as activities at the Embassy here in Norway. Thanks also for Miriam Segal and Barbara Woll for supplying dessert for us to enjoy.
We are losing our Pub-meister Derek. He is stepping down from organizing our monthly Club-Nights. But we will continue to forge ahead. We are looking for a new person that will take his place. In the meantime, we will be setting a rotating schedule between 3 places. These will be announced early in the new year. Anyone wishing to fill Derek's shoes as our new Pub-meister, please get in touch.

Club Night June 14th was a nice evening out on the patio. Olivia on Hegdehaugsveien served up good food and it was nice to see new and old faces. Seemed like a lack of Vancouver people out for this one! Maybe they are at home a little nervous about tonight's game?
Ski Weekend was a tremendous success for another year. Weather was perfect, conditions, food and company was also excellent. Those that missed it, can only hear from those in attendance as to how good it was! Thanx to Bruce for putting together the trip this year. Everyone is looking forward to next year already.
