Club Meetings and Social evening

We typically meet on the first Thursday of every month from 8pm at the Elm Tree in Hightown, Ringwood (unless advised otherwise - check our home page!). The meetings are relaxed social events and a great chance to meet other members in a friendly atmosphere, talk about all aspects of free-flying and find out what is going on in the club. Some meetings also have guest speakers. Non-members are welcome to attend.
