ACTIVITIES

 

Leikarring Folk Dance Group Eidsvold Lodge's Leikarring was originally formed in 1947 by members Margarete and Andy Gilstein.  Members wear the National Hardanger costume (bunad).
Traditionally, the group performs four classifications of Norwegian folkdance: Bygdedans (village dance), Gammeldans (old dance), Turdans (figure dance, and Sangdans (song dance).
They have performed at local Lodge events, for schools and seniors' centers, the opening for the 1994 Commonwealth Games, and as far away as Stavanger, Norway in 2000 for the Nordleck Scandinavian Dance Festival.
The group meets at Norway House  on Tuesdays at 7 P.M.
Contact Mel Klassen at
250-595-7052 for more information.

 


The Eidsvold Walking Club
meets on the first Saturday of each month at pre-determined locations around Greater Victoria for a scenic and leisurely walk of about 4-5 kms.  After the walk, the group gets together for lunch at a nearby restaurant or pub for an enjoyable meal together.
All Lodge members and guests are welcome!  Times and locations can be found below or in the latest issue of the 'Runer' on our Newsletters page.
