The Travellers Club meets five times a year to hear and see accounts of travels around the world by members and others. They range widely in subject and area, from volcanoes and cities to the Galapagos Islands and North Korea. The meetings have lately been in March, May, July, September and November; dates for 2016 are 8th March, 15th May, 10th July, 11th September and 13th November.
The venue for meetings is the Irvine Room at Norths (North Sydney Leagues Club), 12 Abbott Street Cammeray. At Norths there are 30 surface parking spaces in front of the building, including several for those with a disabled permit, but if none is vacant proceed to Palmer Street, turn left and within 30 metres enter the parking station. The 4th level is the roof, open to the sky. It is at the same level as the ground floor of the club and you can walk straight in to the foyer. Then proceed by stairs or lift to the 1st floor and turn left to our space, the Irvine Room. The travellers gather from 2.30pm for drinks and biscuits, the talk is between 3.00 and 4.00pm, followed by coffee and cake. All that for $10. Many of the regulars have been on one or more of Colin Sale’s highly rated overseas tours, so there is much to talk about.
It is essential to know the number to cater for, so, whether you are already on the mailing list or coming for the first time, please inform the Society’s office (Bronwyn Bate) of your attendance. Contacts: (0413) 894 454 or 4736 0959, or by email through our Contact Us form. If in desperate need, you can contact the Club’s convenor, Dr Bob Solomon, at 9516 2139.
