At our Annual December Holiday Luncheon at Lawry’s The Prime Rib in Beverly Hills, the guest speaker will be former TCC President Kevin Hughes, who will present a fascinating film documentary on his historic 66-day odyssey around the “White Continent” aboard the Russian icebreaker, Kapitan Khlebnikov. This “Circumnavigation of Antarctica” will feature the historical sites of the Scott and Shackleton expeditions, live-action rescue of an ice-trapped supply ship, actual operations being conducted including a unique transfer of supplies and passengers from ship to ship, seldom visited bases, ice-breaking operations, the “Dry Valleys” near the U.S. base, helicopter rides on aging Russian choppers, plenty of ice and a cast of thousands … of emperor penguins! You won’t want to miss this incredible adventure, just in time to get you ready for winter!
