Our Hot Air Balloon Meets - everyone welcome!
DUE TO THE CURRENT COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS ON SOCIETY AT PRESENT, OUR BALLOON MEETS ARE ON HOLD. HOWEVER WE HOPE TO BE BACK IN 2021 AND HAVE ALREADY BEEN BUSY BOOKING IN WITH SITES.

PLEASE KEEP CHECKING HERE TO ENSURE MEETS ARE GOING AHEAD

STAY SAFE EVERYONE AND WE WILL BE BACK IN THE SKIES AS SOON AS WE CAN.

Our club meets are not restricted to club members, everyone is welcome.

There isn't a charge to attend our meets 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 20/08/2021  - 22/08/2021
Thirsk, North Yorkshire
THIS HAS BEEN MOVED AGAIN!
WE LISTENED AND ACTED UPON YOUR COMMENTS REGARDING A LOT OF STANDING CROP IN JULY.

2021 meet is to be held on 20th to 22nd August. Same venue as usual.

This is one of the longest running meets in our calendar, (2019 was our 21st visit!) and we have great pleasure in inviting everyone along again 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!

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

The year we have a very special event taking place on Saturday afternoon (as long as all the boxes can be ticked to get it there)

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