2016 San Diego Chapter Events


In May 2016 the San Diego TRA chapter visited the Roynon Museum of Earth Science and Paleontology in Escondido, and were given a private tour of the large collection of fossils and gems by the founder himself.

The San Diego TRA Chapter for the past three years has had an annual July outing to Del Mar Racetrack during the thoroughbred summer season. A few hours of wagering on the ponies are then followed by a delicious dinner at the nearby seafood restaurant Brigantine.

The San Diego TRA chapter holds events every other month, and in September 2016 was pleased to welcome retired Vice President and Radio Systems GM Dave Vandervoet to lead a discussion on, and tasting of, world class chocolates. Dave is an expert on the subject, being a member of the Hawaii Cocoa Council. Almost 40 members and guests attended the session at the Bernardo Heights Country Club, and were treated to a delicious sampling and fascinating briefing.
