We are a bunch of random British and Irish expats who find ourselves on the other side of the Atlantic and generally happy to be here (enjoying the weather) . Along with a few South Africans, Kiwis, and Aussies who all fit in beautifully. (Sorry, but having British or Irish heritage is not enough - you need to have lived there to join this group.)
I guess what we all seem to be missing most is pub nights out, a few beers, a glass of wine, a meal with good company, a chat, the opportunity to hang out with people from the same part of the world, and the same sense of humour!
An evening/afternoon of laughter and chat awaits you, so see you at the next meet up.
Please try to update your RSVP if you are not going to be able to make it. If you are persistently a no-show after RSVPing Yes three times or more, you will be removed from the group - it's no fun sitting there holding seats in bars/restaurants etc. So thanks for updating in a timely manner. These meetup events are ONLY open to Members and their Spouse/Partner/Friend. We know it's hard coming along for the first time but once you've made it to a meeting, it only gets easier! We do try and keep it within our group, otherwise we would just be any old social club.
Don't feel you need to RSVP No, unless you're changing your RSVP from Yes, but please do change it if you realise you won't be able to join. You can edit your emails for each group you belong to and turn off reminders and emails. I get an email every time you change it or respond. :-)
TO BELONG TO THIS GROUP YOU NEED A RECOGNIZABLE PHOTO, HEADSHOT ETC. NO SCENIC PHOTOS PLEASE! I AM NOT GOING TO THINK "DID THAT PERSON TURN UP OR NOT?". I WILL LOOK FOR YOU AND MAKE YOU FEEL WELCOME TO THE GROUP. NO PHOTO, NO MEMBERSHIP.
I do want to note that our meetups are not for selling stuff unless you set up a date specifically and then if people want to go to a jewellery/Tupperware/Mary Kay/whatever party they can. If you turn up to a normal get-together and try to start selling you will be excluded from the group.
Organizers of Meetup groups have to pay for the group to continue. If you feel like contributing to these costs please use the green "Chip in" button on the left. Anything above the cost of membership will go towards something communal - drinks, food, whatever.
If you have any ideas and are willing to host, please let me know.
