TCA 30th Anniversary Commemoration

Your Committee is asking for suggestions for suitable and affordable ways to mark the 30th Anniversary of the Association which falls in August 2017.

It is hoped that members will make suggestions that can be considered by the Committee Meeting in March and that one (or more), may be implemented during 2017, though not necessarily in August. Please send suggestions to Hon Sec ASAP. clickhereTo kick off the process, it is proposed that we might include some element of Commemoration on to the two established dates in our calendar: the Committee Meeting on 11th March at the Royal Maritime Club, Portsmouth and the Reunion on 14th October at the Hallmark Hotel, Derby.

All members are welcome to attend the Committee Meeting (which has become a TCA Social event as well) and it is proposed that this year we should have dinner together. If we dine in Horatio’s restaurant prices are:  

3 courses £15.75 with Coffee or 2 courses £14.00, with drinks from the bar. If numbers warrant, we could have the Nelson Room with a carvery.

Pre-booking of numbers before 1st March is essential, so please let HonSec know if you would like to attend this dinner.

It is recognised that some members may not find it convenient to travel to either Portsmouth or Derby, so it is suggested that Area Officers may like to arrange suitable gatherings closer to home at another time.


If you have not held an event in your area for some time, why not arrange a sociable gathering in a pub or restaurant for some serious lamp-swinging ?

We would be pleased to publicise YOUR LOCAL EVENT in TON Talk and our website www.tca2000.co.uk
