I will endeavour to publish allmaterial submitted but reserve the right todetermine the suitability of material to bepublished. Any material published does notnecessarily reflect the opinion of the DanishClub or the Editor.From the Editor .Kære Medlemmer og Venner af Heimdal.Ulla Uhlott og assistent, Sandy, har tilbudt atlave medlemsbladet.Til næste generalforsamling i august vil jeghermed nominere Ulla Uhlott som Redaktør afHeimdal’s Medlemsblad.Første udgave med ny redaktør vil bliveseptember udgaven.På gensyn i HeimdalAageDer har været nogen diskussion på bestyrelsen ommedlemsskab af klubben skulle være per person istedet for som nu per familie.Nu betaler en familie $50 per år og har 2 stemmer(ved generalforsamlinger), een for hver voksen.Børn under 18 år har ikke stemmeret i klubben.Det nuværende familie-medlemskab omfatter detvoksne par samt deres børn. Børn, der er 18 år ellerældre, skal selv betale familie- medlemsskab $50 perår.Resultatet er, at der er meget få børn over 18 år, derer medlem af klubben. Det ændrer sig som oftestførst, når barnet får en partner og sine egne børn.Enlige personer (over 18 år) kan kun tegne familiemedlemsskab til $50 per år og har een stemme.En ny kategory kunne kaldes person medlemsskabtil $35 pr. år og vil kun øge arbejdet for medlemsofficerenen smule.Det koster for tiden klubben ca. $20 om året atudsende dette medlemsblad per medlem, uansetmedlemskategorien. Derfor er det nokrimligt, at et person medlemsskab skulle blive mereend halv pris af et familie medlemsskab.Har du en mening om dette emne, så send migdin kommentar, så vil jeg prøve at sætte noglesynspunkter i næste udgave af bladet og på voreshjemmeside under ”Synspunkt”.Et uddrag af Klubbens regler, vedrørendeændring af regler, er på side 4.Photo by Alan PrzybylakWebmaster and Editor:Aage Christoffersen18 Boardman StreetKallangur, QLD 4503Ph (07) 3204 5761Skype: lydatronicE-mail: note:The Danish Function is usually on the 2 ndSaturday of the month.Café Danmark is usually on the 4 th Friday ofthe month.Page

ISABELLA HENRIETTA INGRID MARGRETHEDet blev det lidt overraskende navn, den lille prinsesse fik da hun søndag formiddag blevdøbt I Fredensborg SlotskirkeHendes Kongelige Højhed prinsesse IsabellaFoto: Steen BrogaardMange havde sikkert gættet på, at både Ingrid, Margrethe og Henrietta ville indgå i den godtto måneder gamle prinsesses navn. Men der har ikke været mange bud på Isabella.Dermed går kronprinsparret i traditionens fodspor og giver deres anden fødte et lidtutraditionelt navn.Ligesom til prins Christians dåb var det også denne gang mor Mary, der førte den lilleprinsesse mod døbefronten. Der ventede Københavns biskop Erik Norman Svendsen, somogså døbte Christian og viede Frederik og Mary, med tempereret vand.Selve dåben tog prinsesse Isabella rigtig fint – hun sov nemlig trygt mens præsten østevand på hendes lille royale hoved.Men ellers så både Christian og den lille pige noget betuttet ud i kirken, men så tog farFrederik sig af den store mens mor Mary, ligesom til Christians dåb, stillede sin lillefinger tilrådighed når den lille var utilfreds.Da prins Christian blev døbt, havde han ikke mindre end otte prominente faddere, men denlille prinsesse måtte tage til takke med seks, deriblandt nære venner af kronprinsparret ogto prinsesser – Mathilde af Belgien og prinsesse Alexia.Efter dåben inviterede Mary og Frederik deres 120 gæster på en frokost i Kancellihusetsbaghave.Camilla Albrechtsen (Se og Hør) page 11
