Beyond BBF will be appropriate to mention teams from our region in this context.
Solørlaget in Oslo was founded 13 December 1896. The purpose was to collect Solungs (common name for people living in the municipalities Brandval, Grue, Hof, Aasnes and Valer) in the capital of comradely interaction, thereby strengthening the cohesion among them. And to keep contact with the origin municipalities Brandval, Grue, Hof, Åsnes and Valer.
We have previously been an active team, we participated in sports (skiing, football and baseball), we had a theater group, an elderly group (those over 32år) and special group for kids .
Today we consist only of one group with 129 members as of. 31.12.2012.
Solørlaget in Oslo is still working actively to collect Solungs in social contexts such as Christmas, spring, and autumn party, trips to the mountains and sea, theater and opera performances. Similarly, we have given our members the opportunity to participate in events where they can learn more about Oslo, such as walks along Aker and Alna river.
