Members’ Events – non club (MENOC)

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

MENOC – Members Events Not Organised by the Club

In most cases the events appearing in the Newsletter Calendar, and on the website, are official Club events.  However the Club offers members the opportunity to advertise certain events that they organise themselves, but which the Club would not ordinarily choose to run as an official Club event.  Such events will fall into one of the following categories:

Events that are not packages but involve commitment to expensive accommodation.

Events that are packages as defined by the Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements Regulations 2018 (PHR).

Members intending to participate in these non-Club events must accept that any arrangement is between them and the organiser of the proposed event, not with AAC(UK).  When such an event is arranged through, and monies paid to a tour operator, the tour operator is the organiser, not the member initiating the event. If the event is a package within the definition of the Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements Regulations 2018 (PHR), AAC(UK) recommends that such an organiser should be a PHR-compliant tour operator and, if appropriate, ATOL bonded (where a UK tour operator includes air travel in the package).

AAC(UK) cannot vouch for the validity of any information provided for these events.  Nevertheless, members wishing to invite other members to join them on specific events by advertising in this section of the Calendar should send their Calendar entry, and a copy of the information they will be supplying to enquirers (this is purely to check that the Club’s name is not misused), to the aac.office@aacuk.org.uk

If you wish to organise a MENOC please read the MENOC protocol.

For meets and tours that are within the Club’s official programme, please see Meets and Tours – in the UK or Meets and Tours – overseas.

For Activities organised by members click to see the members’ Facebook group and WhatsApp groups.

During an optional 2-day extension, ski safely into the crater of an active volcano getting up there on a mighty 6WD monster truck.  Scheduled departures and private groups from 3. Costs start at €1980 p/p and depend on the group size. Safe deposits. Cheap subsidized flights.

Costs of €1880 p/p also include a jeep safari inside the crater of an active volcano, with sulphur and steam vents, and observing marine wildlife on a day sea cruise. Safe deposits.
