Ya know, half the people I fly FPV with are peeps I have met at clubs.
Just go along, get a feel for the place, if they are having a laugh even if it's only LOS, join up and fly,  there's almost always a closet FPV'er lurking somewhere.
Tentatively use the 'F' word and see if someone says 'OH yeah I do that too'.
Or suggest it and demonstrate it - chances are someone will put the goggles on and say 'Cor Blimey, I've gotta try this'!

  I think it depends on the age group of the Club Members. Most I fly with are let's say, older, and as such a bit set in their LOS ways. A couple of younger types have dabbled and one of the really young ones is well into FPV. The Club Chairman has sent a quad on a P to P Mission on occasion too.
   Im pretty much left to my own devices although they keep an eye on me but tend to leave me alone now. Having spent 3 years without any fly aways or mishaps has made them confident in my ability not to take too many risks. There is one Club Member who would definitely like to ban FPV if he could. The other Members wont let him.
  I did get some stick when I started hand launching my models using Autolaunch....lol.

I have zero interest in joining a club though - see ETs comment above, there's always one gimp who would annoy me. Feeling like people were "keeping an eye on me" would start to grate quickly.

Gordon Bennet, if you have zero interest in meeting like minded model flyers, then you are destined to spend your life flying alone dude.
A club of 30 will have 20 'sensible' LOS flyers, 8 lark about flyers and 2 'up for anything' flyers.
Forget and ignore the gimp.
Just join up, sus them out and see who might be up for FPV.
The alternative is wusser...

There's a big difference between joining a club and flying with like-minded people.

WRONG!
You join the club.
Suss out the like-minded peeps.
And extract them from the club to go FPV with them up on the moors, or behind the bike shed, or whatever!!
Just FPV Steve, there's a lot of it out there...

I tried joining a club around here a few years ago now - none of them were my kind of people let's put it that way :D :D
