We meet on the second and fourth Saturday of every month from 10:00am to 5:00pm (with the occasional exception). The venue is Linton Village Hall, Linton Hill (A229), Maidstone. Detailed directions are here. For details of meeting dates and games, see the diary.
Our annual subscription stands at £60 (£30 for concessions) which covers all 20+ meetings during the year. There is an alternative single-meeting fee of £8 per meeting. Subs can be paid in a single £60 instalment by cash or cheque in January.

For new members who don't necessarily know who the committee members are, we've prepared a Meet The Committee page with brief biogs and pictures.

We do have them occasionally. About once a year, in fact !
