2024 SAOC National

Priest House, Kings Mills, Castle Donington DE74 2RR

16th - 18th August 2024

Planning is well underway for this year's national.  The location is the Priest House hotel and restaurant in the hamlet of Kings Mills about a mile away from Castle Donington and easily accessible from the M1, A50 and A42 / M42.

Accommodation can be booked directly with the hotel, quoting the SAOC National.  Camping and motorhomes/caravans can be accommodated in the grounds of the hotel and adjacent to the river Trent, which can be secured using the Booking form.  Once the Priest House is fully booked there are numerous other hotels available within a 5-mile radius.  

To attend the event please complete the attached Booking Form, note the EARLYBIRD booking prices are DISCOUNTED, the price for bookings later than 30th June increases by 35%.  Booking as soon as you can helps us prepare for the event and gives us a better idea on attendance and the budget that we can spend on little extras.  

You will find the Saturday night dinner menu on the Booking Form.  If you are wishing to attend the dinner please indicate the choices for you and your party and as at recent Nationals your dinner tickets, showing your choices, will be in your welcome pack.

Your welcome pack will also include a name badge for use at the meet & greet on the Friday evening and a memento of the weekend.

Please use the entrance signposted SAOC and showing the clubs feather flags.

Hopefully the weather will be kind to us but if not, we have it covered with the use of the Priest House hospitality rooms and a large Tee Pee Marquee tent.
