IMG 2605A salute welcomed 21 American travel agents.

The 21 Americans, who were special guests to Aalborg and North Jutland, arrived on their last evening of their visit to Nytorv in Aalborg. Here they were received with a salute, fired by Aalborg Kanonlaug before entering Jens Bang Stenhus to be initiated into the Guild of Christian the Fourth.

The 21 Americans had been guests since Thursday, October 3, and were invited to Aalborg and North Jutland by a number of companies to experience our Region. The 21 people are executive travel agents in the United States.

This Monday evening - the last night of their adventure tour - the 21 travel agents were to finish their tour in North Jutland in Aalborg, with being admitted into the Guild of Christian the Fourth.
Chiefbencher Niels Voss Hansen warmly welcomed the guests into Christian the Fourth Guild in the old wine cellar in Jens Bang's Stenhus. The guests were festively presented to the guild and its activities, including a presentation of the guild's brothers. They were told the history of the guild, before they got a key to the secret entrance to the premises. To find this secret entrance, the newly initiated were led around in the city under musical guidance to the entrance, where one of the new members, on behalf of all the others, tested that the key could open the door.

Back in the wine cellar, the new members were invited to the galla dinner of the Guild of Christian the Fourth, consisting of two wonderful red sausages, a glass of beer and a glass of potatojuice (snaps).

After the ceremonial the travel agents and their hosts went to a farewell dinner at the Utzon Center, which marked the final of their visit to Aalborg and North Jutland.
