An Invitation to the September 2017 Charter Chapter Meeting in Newport Beach, California

Our featured speaker will be TCC Treasurer Tim Skeet.

Our next quarterly meeting of the TCC Charter Chapter (Los Angeles/Orange County) will be held on Saturday, Sept. 9, when we return to the popular Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse in Newport Beach, with a new twist — a Saturday Brunch! Our TCC Treasurer Tim Skeet from Calgary, Alberta, will offer a novel interactive presentation, reflecting some of his best photos and videos, posing the question: “What’s Your Adrenaline Rush?”

Fleming’s is located in Newport Center/Fashion Island on a bluff overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean and provides free parking in the large adjacent lots. Some exterior renovation work is underway, but don’t worry — the restaurant is open and is lovely inside.
