Goings On Around the Clubhouse

The days are getting shorter at the Arizona clubhouse and the annual monsoon rains have stopped. The nights are crisp and clear, last weekend a huge harvest moon rose over the desert. The corn and soybeans are being harvested in the fields outside of the clubhouse in Kempton, Illinois. We have battened-up the pool for the next winter season but the squirrels are busy bouncing across the vast estate gathering walnuts.

My next gig is at the Alien Con 2016 convention from October 28 to 30 in Santa Clara, CA.

Giorgio Tsoukalos, William Henry, Johnathan Young and others will be at the convention as well. Check out the website at: www.thealiencon.com

It was fun speaking at the Edinburg Out of This World UFO Conference and Festival in the south Texas town of Edinburg, near McAllen, on August 12 and 13. Old friend Nick Redfern was there, as was Ben Hansen of TV’s Fact or Faked? show.

I had a good, but hot time at the Contact in the Desert conference at Joshua Tree, California from June 3 to 6. Friends Giorgio Tsoukalos, Erich von Daniken, Robert Bauval and Graham Hancock were all there and we were all together in a fascinating panel discussion one afternoon.

After consulting Mike Migliore, who runs WEX Club Cruises, we are changing the date for our 11-day expedition to Antarctica to December 2018. Standby by for exact dates. We will fly to Buenos Aires, Argentina and then fly to Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world. From there we will embark on the double-hulled exploration ship and spend five full days in Antarctica with lots of shore excursions. All meals and drinks are included in the package. Lots of special presentations will be given by me and others on this cruise. This might be the time to cross Antarctica off your bucket list! Check out the webpages at: www.wexclubcruises.com
