Explorers Club Dinner

Tonight was a meeting and dinner for the Minnesota Sub-Chapter of The Explores Club and Explorer Will Steger gave a presentation: “Crossing Both Poles by Dog Team.” The meeting and dinner was held at Stella’s Fish Cafe in Minneapolis, but because of the terrible roads and traffic (from the snow storm two days ago) getting […]

Election results on a very bad day

On an otherwise terrible, horrible day for my family (let me just say that hospital really suck), one fun, happy email arrives and its the results from the first Minnesota Sub-Chapter of the Explorers Club election: “3) Do you want Melissa Aho as our Event Coordinator and Secretary through June 30, 2013? PASSED. 9 Yea […]

The Vote

Today’s mail brings the 1st official ballot from the Minnesota Sub-Chapter of the Explorers Club. While I was elected Event Location Coordinator and Secretary, apparently we are now following Roberts Rules of Order and a more official vote is needed then a few members at a dinner. So here is my name of the ballot. […]

The new Minnesota sub-chapter of the Explorers Club!

Its official… The Minnesota members of The Explorers Club have formed a sub-chapter (on our way to becoming a chapter) and I am now the event location coordinator & secretary. Hmm…reminds me of the lovely Chinese curse “May you live in interesting times.”

The Explorers Club event

Tonight was the summer meeting of the Minnesota members of the Explorers Club, which was held at the lovely Pool and Yacht Club in Lilydale. We were hoping for a record attendance event, but unfortunately the Duluth flood and other events prevented more members from attending. As usual it was a fantastic night filled with some […]

Membership card!

I received my new membership card and certificate today for The Explorers Club! I am very impressed by the membership card. Its plastic, has a beautiful image (I believe its a nebula), and even has a ruler on the reverse side (back in ye olden days I guess we would have called it the Side-B).

The Explorers Club gathering

Tonight I attended a small gathering of some of the Minnesota members of The Explorers Club. A fantastic meal of pheasant stroganoff, wild rice, and various salads, plus good conversation, and Inuit art made it a very fun night.

The Explorers Club!

I got in! I got in! I just received word via email (the ‘official’ letter is in the mail) that I am a new Member National (MN) of The Explorers Club! I have wanted to join The Explorers Club since the mid-1990s, but I figured I would never get in. Then over a year ago I […]


Waiting…waiting….waiting…   Snail mail (USPS) why are you so slow?    

The Explorers Club Mixer

Tonight I attended and had a great time at my first The Explorers Club event! I have been working on my application for The Explorers Club for a while and unfortunately the closest chapter is in Chicago, but there are a lot of members in Minnesota. So tonight I got to meet some of the […]
