Anyone interested in an Old Blues group in Scandinavia?

Hello everyone

Is anyone interested in a Scandinavian Old Blues group?
Gina Skillings suggested it, and I voluntered to try and start one. I was at Hertford 1960-67 (1s & 4s) and have lived in Denmark since 1977, first in Copenhagen and then in Ebeltoft, a small town an hour's drive from Aarhus, since 1982. I am a freelance translator from Danish to English, with a little Norwegian and Swedish occasionally.

I understand there are three other Old Blues in Denmark, and some in Sweden, Norway and Finland. I suggest meeting in Copenhagen the first time for those who can, as the one person who has contacted me lives in the region. However, since we are so scattered, I am envisaging perhaps a Facebook group or LinkedIn - I don't normally do much on Facebook, but have to admit it might be the best way to keep in touch, as we are so scattered.

Anyone living in the UK - or the rest of the world for that matter - with Scandinavian connections would be very welcome to join in, and all suggestions as to what we would actually do, apart from exchange news, will be most welcome.
Hoping people will get in touch

Only just saw this.

I'm in Turku, Finland. There are a few OBs dotted around the country. We met for a meal a few years back but nothing since.

If anything's happening, feel free to share.

Hello Maria

There was only one response to the suggestion, and one way and another we did not meet up - we left the whole thing on hold. A recent leaver contacted me just a couple of weeks ago - she is in Stockholm for a year, then going to Oxford. I am on the move for the next few weeks and not online much... So I am afraid not much will happen until mid October! I will try and get in touch again then.

Anyone else interested in the meantime, please let me know - I will check my mails etc. when I can.

All the best
