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.
March 10, 2018 - Father, Son, Daughter Day - Forging the Viking Sword
Our featured speaker this month is Richard Furrer from Door County Forgeworks, the blacksmith featured on PBS show Nova - Secrets of the Viking Sword showing the making of Ulfberht sword. Not only Mr. Furrer is coming but the Northwestern University professor, Greg Olson, who developed the steel alloy used to make the sword will also attend and give a 10-15 minute introduction leading to Furrer's presentation.
February 10, 2018 - Ladies Day- "If Statues Could Talk, What Would They Say?"
The Annual Ladies Day Luncheon invited the ladies in the lives of our members, their friends and guests to the February gathering. Our speaker for that day was Beth Sair, who agreeded to speak and share her passion and presentation about the Statues of Chicago.
We were also joined by Normennenes, who is the oldest continuously performing Norwegian Singing society of North America. They started our luncheon with traditional numbers.
Thanks to Perry Gulbrandsen, who served as Torskemaster and to the many that made the luncheon enjoyable.
