Club Meetings

As restrictions are now being lifted we are able to hold physical meetings – these are listed below. We must still adhere to government guidelines and we cannot guarantee that every event will take place, so if making a special journey please check with the regional chairman beforehand. We will of course keep this page updated through the year.

Many regions are continuing to hold regular ‘ZOOM’ meetings – the information for these is in the current Tailboard magazine – please contact your regional chairman for information about the Zoom meetings and how to join in.
