Next Meeting
? ?


Following offers to host the 12th Earthrounder meeting from Ravinder Bansal for Buffalo in the USA, Bob Bates for Longreach in Australia and Soiuzbek Saliev for Bishkek in Kyrgyzstan we are leaning towards Kyrgyzstan and are watching the situation relative to Russia and Ukraine. An announcement will be made next June for a meeting in June 2025.

It was considered that as the Swiss meeting was delayed, it would be too soon to hold the next meeting after only 18 months, hence the 2 1/2 year gap.
