The Bristol and District SF Club (AKA BaD) was formed in September, 1965, shortly after Loncon II. Fourteen people showed up for its first meeting. The leading force behind the club was Tony Walsh, who apparently hosted many of the meetings, including the first. Other prominent members included Peter Roberts and Graham Boak and other ex-Cheltenham Circle members.

It published a clubzine, Badinage, edited by Graham Boak.

The club folded when Boak left Bristol University in mid-1968 for job in aerospace industry and Roberts left to go to Keele University.

This is a club page. Please extend it by adding information about when and where the club met, when and by whom it was founded, how long it was active, notable accomplishments, well-known members, clubzines, any conventions it ran, external links to the club's website, other club pages, etc.

When there's a floreat (Fl.), this indicates the time or times for which we have found evidence that the club existed. This is probably not going to represent the club's full lifetime, so please update it if you can!
