September 2019 Charter Chapter Lunch Features the ‘Rooftop of the World’ and a Beautiful Day on the Bay

TCC Vice President Tim Skeet enthralled us with his presentation on “Tibet: Rooftop of the World” at our September meeting (see more photos below).

Some 45 TCC members and guests gathered on the waterfront at the Newport Beach Yacht Club for the Charter Chapter’s quarterly lunch meeting on Saturday, Sept. 14.

TCC Vice President Tim Skeet took us to Tibet, the “Rooftop of the World,” where he and his wife Lana spent a week on an arranged tour — now the only way to access the country. Tim shared the logistics, tours chosen, and experience of Mount Everest from Tibet’s base camp, as well as visits to the famed Potala Palace in the capital city Lhasa, other monasteries and temples, and additional adventures in southeastern China.

We enjoyed a beautiful day on the bay and hosted visitors from Arizona and Illinois as well as our Pacific Northwest Chapter Coordinator, Cindy Shurtleff, in addition to some new members and several first-time attendees.

We invite all TCC members to join us for our Annual International Holiday Luncheon in Beverly Hills on Saturday, Dec. 14. Detailed information is available online.
