The photos below are from the 2013 Scandinavian Retreat at Beaver Creek Park Reserve at Fall Creek Wisconsin.
Norden Folk sponsors this academic retreat for students in Scandinavian studies from several different colleges throughout Minnesota and Wisconsin.
In memory of the late Norden Folk President Jerry Revelle, the retreat participants named the outdoor competitions for him,"The Jerry Revelle Axe casting and spark sled race competitions." Jerry died on January 4, 2013. He had served on the Norden Folk board for many years, perhaps exceeding a decade.
