Are you going to Washington DC?
Circumnavigators and guests are in store for a spectacular weekend when our historic Order of Magellan event is held in Washington DC on April 10-11. The main event will be on Saturday evening, April 11, honoring ground-breaking journalist Ann Compton. Hosted by our Washington DC Chapter, the Magellan event will be held at the famed Cosmos Club, which has counted among its members Presidents, Vice Presidents, Supreme Court justices and Nobel Prize winners.
If you did not receive your invitation, please contact Tracy at headquarters or see the PDF with details and reservation form here. For overnight accommodations, please note there are no longer rooms available at the Army and Navy Club. Please contact the Embassy Row Hotel at 855-893-1011.
The Log needs your help!
The next issue of The Log is in the works, and, as always, we need contributions from Circumnavigators.
Here are some things you can do:
Do you have a good photo for our photo spread or, perhaps, for the cover? The photo spread will have a “faces” theme, such as the one taken here by Roger Baker on a recent trip to India. If you have a good shot of someone you have encountered on your travels, please submit it for consideration. It does not have to be recent. Send your photo by email attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Regarding Roger’s photo, it was taken in Varanasi. Notice the pre-photo gratuity that the gentleman is holding his hand!
Let us know about your travels. Our All Over the Map column features the recent travels of our members. Send us a line or two about where you have traveled or where you are going. Photos of members “on the road” are welcome.
Also, the Scuttlebutt column reports news about members. Let us know if you have moved to a new location, gotten a degree, written a book, been honored by an organization. Photos welcome.
Do you have a travel story to share? Story ideas from members are always encouraged. Let us know if you have a story that can be developed into a piece for The Log. Please do not send completed stories. We will work with you to put it together.
