Every Friday night from 6pm (unless advised otherwise) you can join us in the members bar at RYCV for some casual drinks and our weekly Members’ Draw.

The bar is open to late and there are lots of prizes to be won so it’s a great opportunity to spend some quality time socialising with your fellow members.

Keep an eye on our social calendar for special dinners and guest speakers.

We encourage all of our members to come along to enjoy the night – you must be there to win!
