Alate Meaning: Winged Like, the word is comprised of the Latin roots āla meaning "wing" and the suffix -ate which was used in Latin to make a word an adjective."You were born with wings, why prefer to crawl through life?"
Joining Alate Events & Adventures will allow you to Spread your Wings and try activities you have always wanted to, but maybe just did not have anyone to do them with or you did not know how to plan it out and make it happen.
The planning will be done for you! So come out of your shell, come out of yourself, Spread Your Wings and Grow. Come and share in the fun of various events & adventures such as theme parties, dancing, concerts, dining, rafting, bowling, kayaking, motorcycle riding, hiking, cruising, overnight trips, day trips, wine tasting, the options are endless. Each event will post the descriptions and details for you to determine if it's a good fit for you. For example if a motorcycle ride is posted and you do not own a bike, ride a bike or want to be a passenger then this would not be the event for you to sign up for. But if you like to ride bicycles and a bike riding event is posted then this would be right up your alley.
And just think, you don’t have to go it alone, you will always have a group to share the experiences with.
Join the group if you are in the age range of 35+.
Activities could be small intimate affairs to large group events. Events will be held in various locations from the East Bay, South Bay, Tri Valley, Peninsula and more.
There may be times when events are posted as an FYI Unhosted only to share the information with the members. I might not be attending to host them. In these cases I will ask the members if there is someone who would like to step in as the Event Host and if no volunteers then it will be marked as Unhosted Event. So still do RSVP so that other members know who will be going and then you can make arrangements for carpooling, meeting up etc.
Each member is asked to pay $5.00 annual membership upon joining, or cash at the first event you attend within 2 months. This nominal fee will assist the organizers to off set MeetUp Web and Administrative costs.
Some activities may have a charge involved and PayPal will be used when required for payments to be remitted.
If you like variety and you like to stay active then join us and get ready to Spread Your Wings!
****Be sure to read the group guidelines posted under the More tab/ Files Section, they are subject to change as the group evolves.
An actual profile picture of "you" is required to join please. Not your pet, or a flower or the sunset but you.
No Show Policy,
The goal is to provide everyone with a wonderful experience. When someone is a “no-show” it can keep the group waiting, leaves spots empty and it’s not fair to our events’ host at reserved seating events. The spirit of this rule is to encourage attendance so that all our members can look forward to a good turnout at our events.
A “no-show” is someone who signs up for an event and does not attend the event. If a member fails to attend three events during the calendar year in which they RSVP’d “yes” to, that member will be removed from the Meetup group. We understand that last minute things happen, but failing to let us know beforehand or making a habit of not showing up will result in being removed from this group.
