2020 Club Calendar
The following is a tentative and partial list of meetings and events for the upcoming year. Dates of events and specific activities will likely change as the 2020 TCMG Events Chair works out the calendar in January.
Information listed in the club calendar is subject to change without notice. Scheduled events, dates of those events, and meeting programs may be moved or swapped as needed to avoid conflicts or to accommodate our presenters. The calendar is updated regularly so please check often!
Note: “Unofficial Events” are those in which participation does not award points toward the Sargent “Use it or Lose it” trophy nor require participation to earn an Iron Bottom award. They are listed solely for their interest to TCMG members.
