For those Circumnavigators from the United States, we wish you and your families a festive holiday. For our International members, best wishes to you as well. As Circumnavigators discover the world, we come to appreciate the freedoms and opportunities that exist in some countries, but not in others. So, we continue our efforts to make the world a better place through friendship and understanding.
New & Improved Club Roster is coming…
The online version of our Club directory will be greatly enhanced in upcoming weeks. The new roster will be user friendly and easy to access. The new roster is available now on the web site in an early version. IMPORTANT! PLEASE GO TO THE CURRENT ROSTER AND MAKE SURE YOUR INFORMATION IS ACCURATE. On this website, go to the Membership tab at the top. Scroll down and click on Roster. You can also access the roster in the right column under “Members Only Section”. This will require the password. If you do not know the password (same for all members), contact Tracy at headquarters by email or phone and she will give it to you. Thanks for your help.
The LOG will arrive this month…
We think you will enjoy the upcoming version of our venerable club publication with great stories and photos from our members. Please send us your feedback! We will run selected comments on the web site. Also, let us know if you have any suggestions for stories. Please do not send finished stories to The LOG. We will work with you to develop stories. Also important, send us word about your travels for All Over the Map. Finally, are you a collector? We will be running Collector’s Corner in each issue about travel-related collections.
At the Annual Meeting, our speaker, Adventurer Albert Podell asked our help in identifying one of his many photos that remained a mystery. He has shown it to more than 20 groups, and thanks to our Web Coordinator, Beth Tindall, The Circumnavigators Club came up with the answer. The building, shown below, is the Academy of Fine Arts in Sarajevo.
The Last Shot
Albert Podell was delighted that we identified his mystery photo, and now he has another request. He recently discovered from a Bulgarian that he has been misidentifying this photo as Sofia (Bulgaria) at dusk. Can a Circumnavigator come up with the right venue? Albert says it was taken in Eastern Europe in 2014.
