If you ever find yourself in Chicago the second Saturday of the month, and you have a craving for some Torsk, the solution may be a visit to the Chicago Torske Klub. -Stavanger Aftenblad - 26 May 2006
Welcome to the Chicago Torske Klub Web Site at torskeklub.org! It's good to be in Chicago on the second Saturday of the month. We will update this monthly for current events and dinner meeting news.
Congratulations to the Honorable Perry Gulbrandsen
Our boss, Lowell Olberg, announced at the May Torske Klub lunncheon that our good member, the Hon. Perry Gulbrandsen (retired) has been selected to receive the Norwegian Royal Order of Merit. This award is given by the King of Norway to people outside the country who provide outstanding service in the interests of Norway. It is well deserved, given his work in the Norwegian Community, including the preservation of the 1896 Viking Ship.
Summer Break - See you in September
The summer months are reserverd for golf, fishing and family vacations. It gives the cod some time to grow before we reconvene on the second week of September for the start of the new Torsk season. Enjoy the summer!
