Thank YouThis is still the official website for Derricks 50th birthday (perhaps we should start a count-down to my 60th!!!).
It is still possible to download pictures from the gallery.
However I would like to use this front page to thank the many people who made the party such an unforgettable evening:
These people are:
Monika Bevreus, Simon Jones and Jamie Lever from the Hilton Hotel and all their staff, who did an absolutely wonderful job of decoration, planning, cooking, menu compilation, wine selection and many other behind the scenes jobs which contributed to the success of the entire evening.
Bendix for blowing in his bagpipes and making people wonder what on earth they had let themselves in for when the first arrived.
Jens Christian Wandt for his delightful versions of Bordets Glæder, Nessun Dorma, O Sole Mio and for singing a birthday song.
Peter Anderson aka Turn on Tina for a wonderful show.
Bryan Rice for his songs.
Jimmy Colding and Danny Linde aka Zididada for their wonderful performance and for rushing all the way from Skive in Jutland to perform and drink whisky with us.
Charlotte Vigel and Back to the 80's for providing the best party dance music possible.
Carlo the roadie for pushing the buttons and twidling the knobs on all the sound equipment.
Anders Eskelund who is the real brains behind this website.
Bo Gervig for coordinating all the performing artists, designing the invitations, menus, place cards etc.
Anne Schyum for being such a great help before and on the evening allowing me to enjoy myself 100%.
David Bateson for being compere for the evening.
John Rydam for being toastmaster.
Alistair (my brother) and Graeme (Cousin) plus their respective spouses (Linda and Norma) for flying the haggis in from Scotland.
Jim for his kind words
And absolutely most important of all, to Lene, my poor long suffering wife who has put up with endeless discussions and planning and without whose support, the great party which we have just enjoyed would not have been possible.
also a big thank-you to all of you who participated on the evening making it a memorable evening for me. if you enjoyed the party half as much as i did then you must have had a great time.
