There’s lots happening every month at Beaumaris Probus
Beaumaris Probus meets on 3rd Tuesday each month at the Black Rock Yacht Club

We are an active and friendly club formed in 1987, with some 120 members. We are a men’s club, but apart from the monthly meeting, wives, partners and friends are an integral part of our social events.

Our members come from a great variety of backgrounds – professional, business and technical – and our wide-ranging activities mean there is something of interest for all. Nothing is compulsory and you’ll find we are non political, non sectarian and non fund-raising. We meet to expand our interests and to enjoy the company of others.

A typical month at Beaumaris Probus

The monthly meeting

Every 3rd Tuesday (except in December) at the Beaumaris Probus meets at the Black Rock Yacht Club. The meeting starts at 10.00 am. Members are expected to wear a jacket, tie optional.

Each month we have a guest speaker. We try hard to source excellent speakers and they cover almost every subject imaginable. Also, each month, one of our members shares an experience, interest or story in a 10 minute talk. The diverse range of expertise and skills that exist within our group of members is very impressive. The ten minute talk enables us to  know one another better.

The monthly meeting is a time and place to meet old and new friends, to listen to our speakers, learn something new and also have a few laughs.

Many opportunities to get involved

Every month there are plenty of things happening. Obviously, the more a member participates in these activities, the more they get out of their membership, but the level of participation is entirely the member’s choice.

Here are just some of the things going on!

  • Major club dinners and luncheons
  • Regular restaurant nights out – we call it Tastes
  • Regular Pub Lunches at VERY reasonable prices.
  • Day trips to places of interest
  • Visits to Art Galleries and Exhibitions
  • Annual Golf and Croquet Championships
  • Digital Technology awareness sessions that help build our knowledge
  • Cycling – regular rides and monthly trips
  • Theatres
  • Travel Group
  • Single Malt Whisky appreciation group
  • Wine Appreciation groups
  • Discussion groups –  that meet monthly and solve all the world’s problems!
  • Footy Tipping Competition
