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. To offer a tour you will need to have a leader’s qualification (Übungsleiter) – see Training: Austrian Courses, Leadership page. Meets and tours 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/Tour Leader is willing to communicate by email. Please do not approach any accommodation proprietor to attempt to vary any aspect of the Organiser’s/Leader’s accommodation booking; only the Meet Organiser/Tour Leader may do this.

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