NORDIC FEST 2010 - Excursion info

Postby XeNoMoRpH » Wed Oct 06, 2010 9:09

This year's excursion will be on Friday Oct. 29, and go to Skedsmo Kirke, a stone church with roots that go all the way back to 1180. Before the stone church was built, there was a wood church in the same spot that could possibly be dated to before 1022, when Olav Haraldsson (Olav den Hellige) passed through this area on his mission to convert the vikings of Norway to Christianity. We will get a guided tour of the church, followed by a service inside the church. More info to come about the service.

Image

The guided tour will start at 13:30. We will leave "the cave" at 12:50 with 1 or 2 buses depending on how many people sign up for the trip. The price for the bus ride will be 50 NOK.

You can also drive there by car. Head north from Oslo on E6 towards Trondheim, take exit 45 at Skedsmokorset (Shell gas stations on both sides of the highway). Take a right at the upcoming roundabout towards Lillestrøm, and then the first exit to the right. You will see the church from there. It's a 20 minute drive from downtown Oslo.


To sign up send an e-mail to nordicfest2010excursion@gmail.com, or reply to this thread on the forum.

Important: The price of 50 NOK is only for the bus trip, the tour is free. It is important that when you sign up you specify whether or not you will be on the bus. If you drive a car, or ride with somebody, write that as well.

We hope to see you there.

Too bad that I live in a small appartment so I cannot invite the whole busload of people over for a cup of coffee after the service.

I don't want to sound difficult, but could I get on the bus from downtown Oslo? Where will the bus(es) drop people off after the tour, downtown or cave?

In any case, I'm signing up for the tour.

^ I will think about it. I know that it sounds like an awfully slow morning staying at the cave until 12:50. We haven't quite decided if we wanna give you sometime to wake up, or if we're gonna rush your breakfast and take you to a good view point of Oslo before we go to the church. If we do wait until 12:50, there is an option that one or both buses drive through the drop off point near the train station.

And yes, the buses will take you back downtown Oslo, to the SubScene area.


So let's make a list here as well, with "Bus" or "No Bus" after your name:

1. Mauritz (Bus)
2. Atle (No Bus)
3. Stefan (Bus)
4. Matti (Bus)
5. Thor (Bus driver)

Atle: I'm guessing you're not on the bus, or do you need a seat to get to Oslo afterwards? The price is still the same.

Interesting spelling of my name there.
Reminds me of this guy:

Edited!

I'm sorry, is it correct now? It seems I'm picking up some occasional dyslexia lately.
