Inauguration of 20 Norwegians from Risør and Southern Norway March 23

IMG 7505Finally, an inauguration of Norwegians. Around twenty individuals from southern Norway had made their way to Duus's wine cellar, where they eagerly awaited admission into the Guild. They encountered a special experience as chief bencher Ole B. Kristensen functioned as chief bencher for the first time, which he did with success; the benchers were also pleased, as something new was happening, making them particularly attentive and participative. Guild historian Peter Reinau recounted the Guild's history in his usual inspiring manner, both inside and outside the secret passage.

Our two troubadours concluded the recording with their usual excellent playing and singing.
A delightful morning ended, where everyone enjoyed hearing Norwegian in the cellar once again. Subsequently, the acting chief bencher received well-deserved praise from the benchers.
