Just so there is a 'hub' for these, I thought it would be good to list these threads here, and any others that crop up. Might be a good idea just to make this thread 'sticky' but carry on adding any other regions you like ...

Always good to give people the heads up to where their local club is and when/if they meet up as a lot of people haven't got the time to go searching out whats about :D I'm co-founder of The Old Volks Club in Bristol and we've been going for nearly 5 years yet it's amazing how many people come up to me at shows who want to join a club but don't know how to so giving people these different options and contacts can only be a good thing.

We have monthly club meets every second Sunday of the month at a local coffee shop as well as hitting the major shows and orgainising cruises and weekends away so people can get out and use their dubs :cheers: check out the site at www.theoldvolksclub.co.uk
