Our Hot Air Balloon Meets - everyone welcome!
Below you will find listed our forthcoming meets, but please keep checking as the list will change when new meets are ready to be advertised. Our club meets are not restricted to club members, everyone is welcome.

There isn't a charge to attend our meets without a balloon, and it is just 10 registration with 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.

If you would like to join us, we ask that you register via the relevant meet entry form below under "Click for Entry form and Meet Info". This is simply so we can keep you up to date with what is going on and to let you have further details as necessary.

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

Splash and Dash Meet ***NEW VENUE*** 20/09/2019  - 22/09/2019
The Wolds Gliding Club, Pocklington, York
We have decided to move away from Naburn Lock to give our meets a bit more variety, and so there isn't two York meets within a week of each other to save the farmers!


Caravans, motorhomes and tents on site at 15 per night.

Also available are a number of double rooms at 22 per room per night.

Bar on site too, what more could we ask for?!

Autumn Gold (TRAINING MEET) **NEW MEET** 11/10/2019  - 13/10/2019
Hibaldstow Airfield
Members and friends of the PRBA have been invited to a weekend of fun AND training at Hibaldstow Aerodrome.

This is hopefully following along the lines of the Easter training meet with the possibility of a licence add for dropping meat bombs, and possibly RT licence too. Still TBC.

We will be based on the airfield (camping free of charge). There are also rooms available in the bunk house ranging from dorm style to family rooms. Showers, toilets, a cafe/restaurant, a bar, and lots of people jumping out of planes!

The rooms available to book are hot property so get in touch very quickly as they are booked up well in advance. Also, the village pub, The Wheatsheaf, have four double/twin rooms at around 65-70/night. Bargain! We have test driven the food there too and it was really good. Tel: 01652 659595 or email wheatsheafhotel@outlook.com, the landlord would love a flight by the way!

As well as training, get your competition hats on and compete for the Autumn Gold Trophy. The task is set by whoever won the trophy last year.

We haven't had a balloon meet in this area for a long number of years so come along and take advantage of a bargain weekend.
