Sometimes being one-with-the-stars is what you want, but when you are looking for fellowship and camaraderie, there are meetings and other activities held by RASC Centres across the country almost every day of the week.

Use this list to see when the next Centre meeting is likely to be and then double-check for schedule changes and updates with the Centre Web site. Many Centre meetings are followed by "gastronomy" meetings at local pubs and restaurants where noted.
