- Adelaide Recreational Aviation Group Meets first Tuesday of the month held at the Hampstead hotel, with a table having been booked in the name of The Aviators. Casual gathering beforehand may not be available, so anticipate going directly to the table for pre-dinner drinks 6.30 ish. Expect that self-servicing may not be available for anything, ( which has certainly seen the end of smorgasbord!). Suggest dinner following, 7pm onwards as convenient.
