Annual Trip Presentation

The Annual Trip Presentation was very well attended on Sunday, August 23, 2021 with over 100 people in attendance! Each trip made a presentation and check deposits were made for trips. If you missed the meeting you can download the PowerPoint file (PDF), which contains the slides used by each trip and overall information.

International Travel

For our international travelers you can check the U.S. State Department website by country for specific travel requirements relative to COVID-19. Check this site for re-entry requirements into the United States. U.S. citizens may want to consider registering for the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP.state.gov) so you can receive important information from your nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate, including alerts and updates to Travel Advisories.

The way things are developing, if you intend to do any international travel  expect to have to be FULLY Vaccinated (COVID-19 card) AND show evidence of a Negative COVID-19 test PRIOR to leaving the U.S. AND  returningThree things to keep in mind: (1) find out which test you will need to have; (2) how many hours in advance of travel does it needs to be given; AND (3) the form of payment accepted, especially in a foreign country - you may need to bring extra cash. One tip - when you get your COVID-19 card make a copyfront/back and take the copy to a business who can laminate the card. Put your ORIGINAL card in a safe place - so when/if it needs to be updated you will still have your original card. I'd also take a picture of it with your phone.
