International Weekend in New York City

International Weekend began with a Goodwill Reception on Thursday, October 26 at the Cornell Club in New York City. New York members welcomed fellow members from around the globe.

On October 27, members and guest honored Solar Impulse Pilot André Borschberg at a black-tie event held at the historic Penn Club in New York City. The evening began with a wonderful cocktail hour where members and guests had a chance to meet Mr. Borschberg and enjoy each other’s company. John Philip Sousa’s Circumnavigators Club March welcomed everyone into the dining room to be seated.

International President Ellen Parke welcomed members and guests to this historic event. Past President and Magellan Award Committee Chair Howard Matson gave his introductory remarks and called to the podium the Officers, Governors, Past Presidents, Chapter Presidents and representatives of the Circumnavigators Club to present the Order of Magellan to André Borschberg.

Mr. Borschberg gave an extraordinary address and a wonderful dinner was enjoyed by all.

Mountain View, USA, April 23rd 2016: Solar Impulse landed at Moffett Airfield, completing the Pacific crossing.

The black-tie event will be held at the Penn Club in New York City on Friday October 27. The deadline for registering is quickly approaching— October 6. Also, the deadline for rooms at the Penn and Yale Clubs is October 3. Members and guests won’t want to miss this event honoring Borschberg who co-piloted the around-the-world flight of Solar Impulse 2. More details about attending the event are available here.

 

Circumnavigators and North Korea…

Many club members have traveled to North Korea over the past many years. With the newsworthiness of travel to this forbidding country, our club can offer a unique perspective. We are planning a report for the next issue of The LOG. If you have been to North Korea, please contact David Mink by email davidamink@me.com. All names will be kept strictly confidential and anonymous upon request. Some members who went to North Korea had to sign an agreement not to write about their trip in order to protect the tour company.

A member who wishes to remain anonymous took this shot in North Korea.

 

The LOG needs your help…

We are looking for travel info from our members for the column All Over the Map. Just drop us a line by email to David at the above address or Editor Tracy Sancilio at info@circumnavigators.org.

Photo contest postponed…

For technical reasons our Photo Contest has been postponed until later in the year. Details to follow.

The Last Shot

Circumnavigator Katie Koontz, who is studying abroad this semester in Morocco, shot this scene at the beach near Rabat.

 

Luck to you!
