Regional Events

This year we are going to use maps, as shown on cigarette cards, and we hope to find a map that features every place we meet, though sometimes the same set will have to be used more than once, at least until you tell us of others where the name of the venue is shown. And, I must add, these maps are not up to date, though I am certain that finding out the ways that they differ will provide you much enjoyment.

Now because of size limitations, not all the information about the meetings or the branches and clubs are on this page. However each of those branches and clubs has a home page, and you just have to click on their respective branch name to be whirled over to it. 

And so, without further rambling, let us get started, and reveal when and where we are off to next -
