Ongoing OGHC activities

Members have organized a number of regularly occurring activities for the Old Grace  common room.

This page lists those events and their organizers. OGHC members can participate in these activities, although in the case of some lessons or courses there may be an instructor’s fee or a requirement that a member have reached a certain skill level.

Groups without outside instructors might be able to cancel their activity to allow for another OGHC booking if the organizer is contacted in advance.
