Special Note to Travelers:  The coronavirus has hit the travel and entertainment industry hard.  Right now there are a lot of unknowns and more questions than answers.  The Fun Club has been fielding a lot of calls concerning specific activities.  Please be assured that our traveler’s health and safety are of utmost importance.  We are very supportive of the recommendations of the President’s Task Force to curb the spread of the virus and very aware that what we all do in the next several weeks will make a difference in how long this lasts.  Below is information on some of our scheduled activities that have been affected by the virus.
