The 2018 Arctic Club Dinner was held in the New Club, Princes St., Edinburgh on Saturday 8th December 2018 with Ian Frearson as President.

It was a most memorable occasion, with 88 diners from the Arctic Club, the Scottish Arctic Club, the John Rae Society and guests, enjoying a splendid dinner and company with exciting presentations. Further talks were givien on Sunday morning. Many thanks indeed to all the speakers, and to the staff of the New Club, especially from our Honorary Secretary, Penny Goodman.

A special presentation was made to Geoffrey Halliday to mark his 58th successive Arctic Club Dinner and the completion of his Flora of the Central Fjord Region of East Greenland. Congratulations!
