Goings On Around the Clubhouse

Fall has come to Arizona and the high desert is finally cooling off. We closed the Cottonwood bookstore at the end of June due to the impending sale of the building in Old Town. We give a heartfelt thank you to Ranney Moss, who managed the store for over 18 years, and everyone who staffed it over that time. We will miss this piece of our business, but the Arizona clubhouse is still operational, and in fact just got a new Led Zeppelin pinball game that has been getting a lot of play lately. The bookstore in Illinois is open and the trees are starting to change colors. Take a drive through the country one sunny afternoon and visit!

My latest book, Andromeda: The Secret Files, is being released in late October. It covers the bizarre history of German flying saucer research and the mothership called Andromeda. Order a copy today! The new Season 14 of Ancient Aliens has been filming. Stay tuned for more information on when the new episodes might start airing.

We are hoping to make a trip in February to the fabulous Mayan city of Copan in Honduras and the Olmec areas of the highlands of Guatemala—an area hardly known to archeologists or tourists. We fly to Guatemala City and then our private bus takes us across southern Guatemala to the border town of Copan in Honduras, site of the Mayan ruins known for spectacularly-preserved artwork. We later go into the largely unexplored Olmec highlands of the Pacific Coast of Guatemala. Our private bus will take us through the lush hills and forests of the highlands to the ancient capital of the Quiché Mayans, Santa Cruz del Quiché. It will be an exciting time in these magical countries.

We are also planning a trip to Athens and then to the Peloponnese and Delphi to look at the many megalithic sites in Greece and Turkey in March. Give us a call or send an email if you are interested in this trip. Check out all the details at: https://wexclub.com/events

The WEX affiliated properties usually have a pinball machine or two and our latest web pages are meant to bring pinball enthusiasts, buyers and sellers together.

We have recently sold the Creature from the Black Lagoon machine, so one cryptoid is gone, but we still have Whitewater, which features bigfoot. We traded our Twilight Zone pinball game for a brand new Houdini game. It is a lot of fun with snippets of Houdini’s silent movies and other features. Have a look at www.pinballtrader.us for the top-20 pinball list and other pages.
