Hosts at Sognefjord Hotel, Sogn Fjord Swimming Club's loyal supporters, are expecting a new member to their family in February. On Sunday 1st Advent, Lisett and Jack informed the club that they are expecting a little brother for their son Christian.

LEIKANGER: Sogn Fjord Swimming Club had their annual Christmas Party at the Sognefjord Hotell, Leikanger on Friday 19 November.

Before they tucked into Siv Eggum's Christmas buffet, the fjord swimmers chose to wet their appetite in the fjord. Eight loyal members jumped into a moonlit sognefjord, a touch on the warm side (probably about 7-8 degrees) for the perfect start to the Fjord Swimmers' Christmas Party 2010.

Afterwards, ten happy souls tucked into the hotel's culinary delights, followed by a presentation from Terje Eggum, with his photographs from a swimming expedition with Lewis Gordon Pugh at the base of Everest region, which he was part of in May this year. The partygoers continued the evening by reflecting over the year's activities and looking at photographs from the club's activities from 2010, before they danced the night away.

Another wonderfully social gathering for Sogn Fjord Swimming Club!
