happy new year!

Welcome to 2023

We decided to show this imaginative, iconic art piece from 1912 to toast the New Year. Looks like Circumnavigators are sharing bubbly with countries around the world. We have now struggled through three challenging years. Let’s hope for a fresh start in 2023. The Club would like to wish a Happy New Year to our members, family and friends. Our mission to make the world a better place is as important as ever.

A number of Circumnavigators have ventured to Antarctica recently, some making it their 7th Continent to visit.

dills and minks antartica

Circumnavigators Jon Melody Dill and Dottie & David Mink (Naples Chapter) touched down in Antarctica last month, opting to fly from Chile to avoid the often rough Drake Passage. They picked up a cruise there and marveled at the magnificent scenery.

Walter Suslak 7th continent

Circumnavigator Walter Suslak (At large, Jacksonville, FL) and wife Sally made it to their 7th Continent. Some of Walter’s excellent photos will be featured in the next issue of The LOG.

Lisa Brighton Antartica

Circumnavigator Lisa Brighton (Michigan Chapter) got a work out in the icy waters of Antarctica. She loved her month-long journey to this part of the world.

At this writing, a least two more club members are off to the bottom of the world on separate adventures. They are Michael Puldy (Pacific SW Chapter) and Mark Pross (Washington DC Chapter). Mark is repeating a trip to Antarctica during which he contracted Covid and couldn’t leave his ship for the land excursions. Have you been to Antarctica or plan to go soon? Please let us know at club@circumnavigators.org because we will feature this venue in the next issue of The LOG.

Circumnavigator Ann Swinford (Michigan Chapter) was one of the Americans who ventured to London for the magnificent House of Lords dinner for Circumnavigators. Why not consider attending this wonderful event next December?

Pam & Bill Girtman

Circumnavigators Pam Bill Girtman (Naples Chapter) visited Jamaica where they got this iconic shot of a local street vendor.


Touchdown for the Petersons

Circumnavigators Melanie & Dan Peterson (Chicago Chapter) have enjoyed attending a lot of pro and college football recently. In addition to four NFL games (one each with Circumnavigator son Andrew (At-Large) and daughter Charlotte (At-Large)), Dan flew Melanie in his plane to Philadelphia and back for the Army-Navy Game.  Later it was on to Miami (by airline) for the Orange Bowl, joined by their other Circumnavigator son Matthew (At-Large) for a Tennessee victory. Sixteen hours later Dan was in Phoenix for the CFP Semi-Final Fiesta Bowl and a TCU victory.  And next week Melanie, Dan and Andrew are headed to Los Angeles for the CFP National Championship Game.  For Dan, Club 1st VP, that will push him more than halfway to his goal of seeing a game in all 30 NFL stadiums.
