annual meeting postposed May 15, 2020

The Circumnavigators Club has decided to postpone its Annual Meeting, scheduled in New York City on May 15. We are disappointed to make this decision resulting from the uncertainties of the current coronavirus pandemic and the restrictions in New York. The meeting will be rescheduled in 2020 when the situation is clear.
We thank our guest speaker, author Patricia Schultz, and all the members who planned to attend from around the country for their understanding.

Luck to you in these trying times!

Spring is on its way

Welcome to March with spring flowers and warm temperatures coming soon. Circumnavigators aren’t seasonal travelers; they travel year round. But spring does offer some new travel opportunities. We would like to remind members to send us a photo or two and a couple of lines about their trips to be used in The LOG feature All Over the Map. It is a great way to share travel experiences.


Singapore Tradition

The Singapore Chapter started 2020 in its traditional fashion by holding its Annual General Meeting followed by cocktails and dinner in January. A wonderful evening of great food and wine and many a song was sung supported by its usual band.

President Michael Palmer’s review revealed a full membership with a waiting list, finances in very good health and a calendar full of excellent monthly events. The President gave special mention to the Singapore Chapter being invited to open the Singapore Stock Exchange market trading by sounding the gong.


Save the dates


Members are invited to attend upcoming events in New York. On March 12, the Club will receive a presentation from Circumnavigator Edwin Galkin who has done three circumnavigations in his single-engine plane and is planning to head off for his fourth Round-the-World trip. Edwin’s mission is to increase awareness and support to fight Alzheimer’s. On April 22, the guest speaker will be Elizabeth Sharland, actress and author who has written numerous novels and books about theater and travel. Invitations will be sent soon. On May 15,we will hold our Annual Meeting with guest speaker Patricia Schultz who wrote “1000 Places to See Before You Die”.
