Official information on Greenland.

- - - -

Then, turning some confusion on my part into further knowledge ...

Quote:
Regentparret ankommer til Narsarsuaq (Reigning Pair arrive in Narsarsuaq)
I thought Narsaruaq was the 'new name' for Sondre Stroemfjord (SSF).

From a post of further on below, I now know Narsaruaq to be far away from SSF.

However, some background information on SSF -
At one time, SSF was the only commercially available long runway in Greenland. In the early days - the late 1950's - airplanes had to stop there to refuel, because at that time they weren't able to make the long hops over the Atlantic that they are now capable of doing.

There is a short runway in Nuuk, which - if memory serves me correct - caters to prop-jobs and is beset by closures because it has a poor layout weatherwise.

Some links for SSF :
Kangerlussuaq = Sonder Stroemfiord is in West Greenland
SSF was US Air Force Base until 1992. I didn't know that. I passed through in ~1985. Mind you, I was on the east? side of the airport, and on the west side I could see a trio of F-16's (Belgium, Denmark and the Netherlands. If memory serves me correct, it was a joint purchase at that time. It was the beginning of a successful run of Falcon sales overseas that continues to this date).

Other general interest links :
ice cap is always moving
general pictures

airline connections in Greenland courtesy of Greenland Air. How come there's almost nothing on the east coast?

I'm filling their itinerary in here. :)

Sunday, June 20
Reigning Pair steaming on Royal Ship Dannebrog to capital of Greenland.


Questions ... will there be a private church service onboard on this day, how devout is the Danish RF?

Other than that, probably a review of the forthcoming events with "Le Chef du Protocol" .... memorizing names and significants events per person. [BTW, I hear this is the item that "blows people away" with the Queen of England .. is, how much she knows of the person's history when she is conversing with said person.]

Meanwhile in Nuuk, things are probably running at a "fever pitch" ! .... Never have they had two Royal Couples in attendance. Quite the honour they are being accorded.

I imagine last minute changes are wreaking their effect with the officials - who will be more stressed, the Greenland natives or those who emigrated from Denmark? More 'dry runs' ?!

Let's see what the schedule for official events is, in Nuuk, for this date:

According to the "Time Zone" calculator on my computer, Greenland is
2 hours behind mainland European Time,
2 hours ahead of Eastern Daylight Time, and
5 hours ahead of Pacific Daylight Time,

so that means the arrival time (of 07.45 hrs) for Colony Harbour Time equates to
09.45 hrs for (breakfast) mainland Europe time,
05.45 hrs for (wake-up alarm) Eastern Daylight Time, and
02.45 hrs for (in REM sleep) Pacific Daylight Time.


Tuesday, June 22
Crown Prince Pair arrive in Nuuk ( Godthåb ) after flying from Copenhagen.


Reception onboard beginning at 19.30 (minus 12 = 7.30 pm for those not on bilingual time)
The ship leaves at 22.00.

On kongehuset, I picked up on a few receptions onboard the Royal Ship Dannebrog, so I've amended a few of the earlier posts. So sorry ... :P

What do you figure the chances of being a 'common' Dane
- who is posted / assigned to Greenland at this time -
has of having a quiet tete-a-tete with the Royals during their visit to Greenland,

as opposed to applying to receive an invitation to a regular crowded event, during a regular life-time of living in Denmark ?

Just so you know, on this date, they take a "puddle-jumper" or something bigger (likely) to hop over Greenland.
So they leave the northwest corner, and go to the northeast corner.

..... to Daneborg, to visit the sled patrol base Sirius. Overnight in Daneborg.


http://www.cphpost.dk/get/77695.html
".... the tour will embrace 12 townships in Greenland, including the capital Nuuk and settlements along the eastern and western coasts with visits to the Sirius Sledge Patrol's bases at Daneborg ...

This will be familiar to Prince Frederik, as he took part in the tough Sirius 2000 Sledge Patrol in eastern Greenland several years ago."

http://www.cphpost.dk/get/56588.html
"Royal Polar Expedition

26-11-1998

Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark was named last week as one of six members of a specially formed team due to participate in an expedition to Greenland in the year 2000. The expedition has been planned as part of celebrations to mark the 50th anniversary of the Sirius Expedition in 1950, and will be the first Danish expedition to Greenland in the new millennium.

The tough 'Expedition Sirius 2000' is due to begin in February 2000 with the six-man team setting off from Thule/Qaanaag in the north west of Greenland. From there the Prince and his colleagues will travel by husky-drawn sleighs northwards, following the icy coastline of the Polar Sea and finally down along the east coast until they reach the sleigh patrol's base Weather Station Daneborg. The approximate length of the trip is 3,500 kilometers.

The overland expedition, with sleighs drawn by 42 husky dogs, involves six men in all. Most of the men, like the Prince have a military background, and four are former members of Greenland's Sirius Patrol. With his background as a Danish navy seal, as well as several trips to Greenland in the past, Crown Prince Frederik's has been deemed more than qualified to make the physically and mentally demanding trip.

Cameraman Morten Søborg will be joining Prince Frederik and his colleagues on the expedition in order to record it for a TV2 documentary. The resulting five-part television documentary will be the first time in TV history that viewers will be able to follow such an expedition at close hand. According to organisers the expedition will be outfitted with a wealth of modern communications equipment which will ensure that Prince Frederik and his companions are in daily contact with the rest of the world. A direct link to the Internet is also due to be set up providing users with daily pictures, information and on some special occasions, a direct chat link.

The filming of the Expedition Sirius 2000 will be the most comprehensive TV and Internet project in Denmark to date, and the most extensive documentary on the world's biggest island to date.

The Prince's expedition partners are Steen Broen Jensen 32, Kresten Mathiasen 29, Søren Bredvig Nielsen 30, Kurt Jørgensen 32, and cameraman Morten Søborg 34."

environmental considerations through time in Greeland

winter vacation

http://www.philagroup.es/news/news2004-05.htm#gnl
"Time and time again he has been elected the most popular man in Denmark. He likes demanding sports, runs marathons, is a certified frogman and more than once he has surpassed his own limits. Even though he is a prince, he is also one of the people. When he was younger, he was shy; but now, although he can still be a little awkward, he is genuine and pleasant. For a long time he lived a bachelor's life. With time he has received more and more ceremonial duties and it looks as if he enjoys it.

She is beautiful, intelligent and well educated - and she comes from the other side of the world. She is a grown-up and sporty Australian, who seems to be made of the right Queen-material. She seems kind and she is able to listen and - not the least of her qualities - be tactful.

They sound like the perfect couple, a couple of our times; the cool Crown Prince Frederik and his future Crown Princess Mary, and there is much that points in their favour. Together they will lead the Danish monarchy safely through the next several decades - a perilous task in this 21st century, in which the magic and the myths have to be preserved, in which the monarchy relies on its actors and in which these ought to be above any political or financial interests - a true act of balance.

When they put on their work clothes after the wedding on 14 May (and their honeymoon on 22 June to an unknown destination) and they [color=[purple]embark on their first official journey together - the trip to Greenland ... the beginning of a lifelong, serious working life as Denmark's Crown Prince couple, both within and outside the Danish Commonwealth.[/color]

A special honour

That Greenland was chosen to be visited by the newly-weds, travelling from Nuuk via Qaanaaq and ending in Illoqqortoormiut .... is not surprising. Crown Prince Frederik is not the only member of the Danish royal family who has a close relationship with Greenland. Queen Margrethe has always had a profound fascination for both the Greenlandic and the Faeroese societies, just like her parents King Frederik IX and Queen Ingrid before her. To Crown Prince Frederik, however, Greenland still holds something special for him. In 2000 he participated in the Sirius Expedition 2000 marking the 50th anniversary of the Sledge Patrol Sirius: a 2,800 km journey together with five friends, three sledges and 42 dogs from Qaanaaq in Northwest Greenland to Daneborg in Northeast Greenland. When a part of Northeast Greenland subsequently was named after him: "Crown Prince Frederik Land" he must rightfully have been very proud.

He is not the first member of the royal family to be bestowed this honour. He is, however, the first to actually visit the place named after him. The expedition turned out to be a "journey in life" for him, where he was able to live in the present. To him Greenland became "a forever thing that will always be there. Be forever", he has said. Now we can look forward to seeing the new Crown Princess in Greenland's national costume and the Crown Prince can look forward to showing his wife the country he has become so fascinated by."

if you plan a sport expedition ...
