Club Activities & Events

The "Urunga Radio Convention" sadly has been "Cancelled for Easter "

the "Covid-19" Concern for our visitors has made this necessary.

It will be on again when the "Covid 19" has been resolved and the restrictions are lifted, we have been in contact with the Hall committee, and the safety restrictions, to safe Guard our visitors,make this unavoidable.
Hoping this will soon be over., we miss our Foxhunting friends.
