An Invitation to the August 2024 Charter Chapter Meeting in Newport Beach

Peter Narins, TCC Gold Level member and research professor, will discuss life and work in Antarctica at our August lunch meeting.

Our next meeting of the TCC Charter Chapter (Los Angeles/Orange County) will be held on Saturday, Aug. 10, when, in more ways than one, we will “cool-off” at the waterfront with a summer gathering at the Newport Beach Yacht Club.

TCC member and research professor Peter Narins will take us on a fascinating journey to Antarctica where he lived and worked on a scientific research project for one month and, most recently, hosted an expedition there this past January. Peter has participated in nearly 60 research projects around the world and has titled this talk: “Being in three places at once: Life near the bottom of the world.”

The Newport Beach Yacht Club is located on the mainland just before crossing the bridge to Balboa Island. For easiest access from Pacific Coast Highway (in either direction), turn south onto Bayside Drive and continue to the NBYC, on your right, at the intersection of Jamboree Road. Note: Taking Jamboree south from PCH to Bayside is NOT recommended as an awkward and dangerous right turn and U-turn is required to enter the parking lot.
