Vegas Viking President Erik Pappa

Erik Pappa

We had an outstanding time and what was probably our best appearance yet, at the Age of Chivalry Renaissance Festival at Sunset Park.
Visitors loved our Viking ship and encampment, with more than 1,300 boarding the ship for fun and a photo opp.  (377 on Friday, 559 Saturday and probably more than 400 on Sunday, when the counter broke).
We imparted a lot of lessons about Norway and the Vikings and we collected a number of names, email addresses and phone numbers of people who were interested in our lodge.  We're reaching out to them to hopefully get them involved.
Some of them liked our work so much that they donated funds -- $294 to be exact.
Tusen takk to everyone who helped out -- I hope you all enjoyed it!  That includes Jim and Linder Turner for hauling the ship and all the heavy stuff in storage to and from the site and for your participation during the event, Chuck and Jeanette Grove for continuing to let us keep the ship at your place and for helping set up and tear down and your participation.  I also want to thank Rick Senzig, David and Terri Anderson and their daughter Katherine and her friend, Jessie, Andy Agan, Karen Holien, Leslie Starkey-Smith (see her cool photos on our Facebook page), James Smith, Bob Sturgeon, Doug and Vicdan Kittelson, Maureen Anderson, Sally Eldridge, Vicky Brenes and Gregg Leduc.  This event would not have been possible without all of your help.
November will be a good time for us.  I'm looking forward to Doug Kittelson's presentation on his recent journey on Norway's Hurtigruten at our November 1st lodge meeting.  Don’t forget: November 17th and the Scandinavian Holiday Bazaar that is always enjoyable for meeting and conversing with others and of course the shopping.


District News from: Luella Grangaard
President, District Six

Translating the word "Kretsstevne" :
"Krets" means a circle and "stevne" means a gathering, so Kretsstevne is translated as "a circle of friends getting together".

Kretsstevne    This fall we had three very successful District Kretsstevnes.  What happens at a Kretsstevne?  Members of Sons of Norway get together to celebrate our heritage, eat, drink, sing, dance, play horseshoes, Viking games, taste wine, food demonstrations and enjoy time with all our fraternal sisters and brothers.  In addition our Kretsstevnes also raise money for Camp Norge.  Three Kretsstevnes were held this year, the Northern was held at Camp Norge, the Central held in Buellton, CA and the southern in Banning, CA.  Approximately 20 different lodges participated in the three events.  I was fortunate to attend all three.  This year the three Kretsstevne raise over $4000 for Camp Norge.  Thank you to all the volunteers and members who donate their time, food, items for auctions and drawings.  Your efforts are appreciated by the members of District Six.  I encourage everyone in our district to take the opportunity to visit and use Camp Norge.  Also watch next spring for postings for the 2019 Krestsstevnes and mark your calendars.  I would like to meet you at one of these fraternal events.

Rømmegrøt by Microwave - Serves 16 (this is not actually rømme grøt because it does not use any sour ceream, but still very good)
1 cup butter
1 cup all-purpose flour
3 cups half & half
1 cup whole milk
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 tsp salt
Direction: Melt butter in large microwave-safe bowl.  Stir in flour with wire whisk.  Cook until mixture bubbles; cook 30 seconds longer. Heat half & half and milk together, slowly add to flour mixture.  Stir with wire whisk while mixing.  Return to microwave until mixture begins to boil, about 2 minutes. Remove from microwave; stir in sugar and salt. Microwave 30 seconds longer.  Add more hot milk if necessary to reach desired consistency.
Serve with melted butter, cinnamon, sugar, if desired.

Thanks to Victor Tiden

so many inquiries for a super good lefse recipe, so here it is............

8 cups Russet potatoes, boiled and riced
1 cup whipping cream
2 tsp salt
3 tsp sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 cups flour

Directions - Cover and chill in refrigerator overnight.  Makes it easy to roll out.
Next day add flour and mix well.  Measure out about 1/4 cup of mix per lefse.  Form into balls and keep in refrigerator until ready to roll.
Roll on pastry cloth to about 10-12 inch in size, fry both sides on hot lefse grill at 450°.
Butter the lefse and sprinkle with a mix of cinnamon and sugar.  Enjoy!!
If you need a lefse grill, just do a search on Google.  I have the non-stick Teflon grill.

Where to find Scandinavian foods in Las Vegas:

IKEA in Las Vegas - Address: 6500 IKEA Way, Las Vegas, NV 89148

Click here to visit IKEA

The international Market, just South on Decatur by Tropicana.  I just went there last week and found multer (cloud berries), Vestland Lefse, Daim sjokolade.  I am a happy camper!!!  Also bought gul ost, geit ost, sursild and blueberry and black currant juice.   Fiskeboller and knekkebrød.  You have to do some searching to find the Scandinavian foods, most are in the back just before the fresh vegetables but they really do have some goodies.
They will also order special items if you fill out a request.  The more people that go there and purchase Scandinavian food, the more they will get and keep re-stocking. So, if you want to be able to buy Scandinavian foods in Las Vegas, please go there.  It is an amazing store and great prices.

Linie Aquavit Total Wine & More now carry Linie Aquavit here in Las Vegas.  I know many people have asked where to find that.  Stop in and tell them how great this is and get some for that special occation.
