Our Hot Air Balloon Meets - everyone welcome!
Our club meets are not restricted to club members, everyone is welcome.

There isn't a charge to attend our meets either, with or without a balloon, there may be a small charge towards overnight stays in tents/caravans and motorhomes and this will be specified on the entry form. These need to be booked in advance please.

The closing date for entries is usually the Saturday prior to the meet to allow us to finalise the details with the site. However, if you have left it too late and the deadline has passed by, don't worry, just get in touch and we will try to fit you in.

For more information about our meets, please contact the club's meet organisers; Alex and Elaine Smith, via the email address; meets@prba.org.uk or telephone 07974 316123

White Horse Meet 19/08/2022  - 21/08/2022
Thirsk Racecourse, Newsham Road, North Yorkshire
WE LISTENED AND ACTED UPON YOUR COMMENTS REGARDING A LOT OF STANDING CROP IN JULY and moved the White Horse meet into August to help with this.

Same venue as usual. Thirsk Racecourse horsebox park, off Newsham Road.

This is one of the longest running meets in our calendar, (2022 will be our 23rd visit!) and we have great pleasure in inviting everyone along to take part in the fun and friendly rivalry with the pilots trying their luck to win the White Horse trophy.

Once again, our trophy is currently residing over the border in Lancashire, so come on Yorkshire pilots, let's get it back home this year! Even so, Lancashire pilots are still welcome.........as is everyone.

As before, we have the usual well-drained camping and launch area.

REGISTRATION BY 14/08/2022 PLEASE

All on-site overnight stays must be pre-booked and paid for please.

Members and friends of the PRBA have been invited to a weekend of fun at Fishburn Airfield in County Durham.
