Report From the April 2019 United Kingdom Chapter Meeting in London

Springtime gathering of the United Kingdom TCC Chapter in April 2019 (see more photos below)

Dear TCC Member,

The TCC United Kingdom Chapter held its spring 2019 meeting on Sunday, April 14, returning to Doggett’s Coat and Badge, Southbank, London. There were 29 members in attendance, including familiar faces, members attending their first TCC meeting, and guests in attendance. Our group included UK-based members and members from the Czech Republic, the Netherlands, Turks and Caicos and the United States.

Our speaker was Chris Hudson, who spoke about the Art of Travel, covering points of interest from West Africa to the Silk Road in Western China. Chris also discussed the current status of TCC countries and provided more information to the group about the process of how countries are accepted (or removed), prompting the inevitable lively conversations.

We continued our informal tradition of holding another picture quiz where each table formed a team. Each team was challenged to identify mountains, travel-related songs, river ferries, and national food and beverages. Correct answers provided clues to solving an anagram. Unfortunately, although one team achieved a high score of 18/20, none of the teams were able to work out the anagram to the HINT: Traveler’s feeling of relief after a panic, which was “I just found my passport.”

The UK Chapter’s next meeting will be held in the autumn, generously invited by RAC and TCC member Angus Palmer to return to the RAC. Date options will be announced by the end of April.

Best regards,

Donna Marsh
Chapter Coordinator, United Kingdom and Ireland
