New to Auckland? Returned to Auckland? Been in Auckland a while and feel like getting out and about? This group has been created for all of those people who still question whether their bus will take them to Papakura or Albany... For the people who haven't realised that a night out in Ellerslie doesn't quite count as 'going to town'... This group is for those who are looking for a coffee shop where the chairs don't match -- and all they can find is Starbucks... Most importantly, this group is an excuse to get together with all those people you haven't visited in ages because you haven't been able to brave the motorway ;-)
If you have an idea you're welcome (and encouraged) to hit the 'Suggest Meetup' button. A social drinks night in your area, a day hike up Rangitoto or a Waiheke winery tour -- anything social and fun. You may host it yourself or leave that to the group organiser (when not out of town). Your meetup will be announced after approval from an organiser.
Events should be social, fun, interesting, and stimulating, but please -- no 'date nights'. This is a social group but not a dating group.
Please treat your RSVPs like any other social commitment. If you can't make it or change your mind then change your RSVP as soon as you can. It can rather spoil the mood if people don't turn up, so please respect your fellow Newbies and the organiser (whoever that happens to be) by honouring your commitments. Repeated no-showers may get a polite suggestion to find another group :-)
