Adventure Travelers' video quiz By Members Joy and Geoff Ashton

Joy Ashton
                   Geoff and Joy presenting the Annual Holiday Quiz

There was a brand new Travelers'Quiz designed specifically for Adventurer’s Club members. Twenty questions, each with three parts and a bonus if all three parts to a question were answered correctly. Prizes for the winners.  We changed team size from eight to six this year, because eight proved awkward with the Treetops seating arrangement. For the quiz, arrange yourselves in teams of not more than six people.
You may do the quiz by yourself if you wish, or with a team of less than six members.
Check with Erika on your desired seating arrangement.

The Marine Life of Hawaii and the Waikiki Aquarium
By Guest Dr. Andrew Rossiter
Thursday, September 16 at the Outrigger Canoe Club, 2509 Kalakaua Avenue
     Dr. Andrew Rossiter is the Director of the Waikiki Aquarium. He is a native of Wales, in the United
Kingdom. He received his Ph.D. in zoology in 1983, and three days later was on his way to Japan, initially for two years only. He seems to have liked it there, and eventually left twenty one years later, in April 2004, to become the Director of the Waikiki Aquarium.
     An aquatic biologist by training, his studies have taken him to five continents, and have included research on stream insects, lake fishes & coral reef fishes in Japan, fishes in Lake Tanganyika, Africa, sturgeons in Canada, fishes in Lake Baikal, Siberia, which involved diving beneath ice, and also studies of tortoises in Africa.
     The scholarly results of his work include three books, one translated volume, and nearly thirty scientific papers, and have earned him many awards from such prestigious institutions as the Royal Society of London, and the Linnean Society.
     His presentation concerns his several changes, renovating and replacing exhibits where needed and adding new exhibits to the Waikiki Aquarium. His ambition is to use the Aquarium to educate and inform residents and visitors about the unique and amazing marine life around the Hawaiian islands.
