Solent Gaffers

THE SOLENT AREA OF THE OGA

Solent Events

Welcome to our 2019  Solent Gaffering season !

The chronological list of events below includes our very own home-grown events along with all the others we know about in The Solent which welcome Gaffers.  If you have looked at an earlier version of the programme, please note that for a variety of reasons we can’t proceed with the July Bucklers Hard Rally; maybe next year.  

As booking for each of our own events ‘goes live’, about 4-6 weeks ahead, members will receive an email inviting you to register and you will also find a link to the booking form from this site. Have your membership number handy!

  

We would welcome any help in organising and running our events that you can offer, please get in touch with the Secretary (solsec [at] oga [dot] org [dot] uk) if you think you can assist.

 

You can download the NEW  2019 Solent Event Calendar below for essential dates.  We will add details so do check from time to time.
