Not only do we commemorate the 200th. anniversary of the Norwegian constitution this year, Gamvik municipality also celebrates its first century as an independent entity of local government. Given these extraordinary cirumstances, it was only natural that the first part of the National Day celebrations took place at Slettnes. With public broadcaster NRK present, we were happy that the weather gods were in a mood we don’t see very often. Thanks to everyone who contributed and participated, including the group of Swedish birders who took the disturbances in a sporty way.
