Overview

This is an exciting year for the Connecticut Chapter as it is hosting this year's AMC Fall Gathering, from October 12 to 14 in Woodstock, CT. The Gathering is a major annual event involving all the chapters and usually attracting around 200 participants. In addition, to a whole range of other events, there will be a special audio-visual presentation entitled "Polar Journeys - To the North Pole" after dinner on Friday, October 12 at 8.30pm In this presentation, documentary photographer David Roberts will take us first to Antarctica, and then north to the Arctic region, visiting Iceland, Greenland, Spitzbergen, Russia's Franz Joseph Land, and finally through the ice all the way to the North Pole aboard the world's most powerful ice breaker, the Russian nuclear powered "Fifty Years of Victory." In addition to amazing scenery, David will feature penguins, whales, polar bears, walruses, and other wildlife, as well as talk about exploration in these vast frozen regions and the similarities and differences between them.
