DFRC holds different social events across the year and always welcomes spectators to any events to support and learn (help too if you can!). We have two key social events, the AGM held at the end of the club year alongside our presentation evening and the DFRC club camp usually held in the summer at Somerford Park. Next years Camp is being held on the 3-5June 2022.
You will find details of the AGM in the newsletter and sent via email to you nearer the time. In 2020 due to Covid we produced a virtual AGM which you can view here.
Camp places fill up very quickly so contact Cathy London for more information and look out for updates in the Newsletter and on this page.
