Meets and Tours – Overseas

If you are a member please login to see full details.

This programme of non-UK Club meets and tours, mostly organised by members for members, provides an opportunity for you to take part in a wide variety of events, outside the UK. Please join in. Your company is welcome; your enthusiasm, help and expertise are needed. If you can arrange an event of any kind, please contact the relevant co-ordinator well in advance. Meets require long lead times and should be planned, and booked, well ahead.

All meets and tours: Plan and book early to avoid disappointment. A non-returnable deposit or full payment is required to book a place.  Please also supply an SAE, unless the Meet Organiser is willing to communicate by email. Please do not approach any accommodation proprietor to attempt to vary any aspect of the Meet Organiser’s accommodation booking; only the Meet Organiser may do this.

For other Overseas meets and holidays that are outside the Club’s official programme, please see Members’ events – non club (MENOC)
