Central Mass Singles- 25-47 Pages
Central Mass Singles After work social hours at local bars, clubs, and restaurants.
CMS is for those singles ages 25-45, that want to socialize with other singles in Central Massachusetts. Central Mass is more than just Worcester County, and although most of our members are from the Worcester area, people are welcome to join from the surrounding areas - please join us! We will have activities both inside Central Mass and outside, although most will be in Worcester County, and in the city of Worcester.
We are a very active group, with several events each month. We currently hold 3+ events per week, with some regularly scheduled events while the rest are random or less frequently recurring events; you will always be meeting new people. Our events are a mix of indoor and outdoor activities.
Some of our events in the past have included:
Dinner at local restaurants and pubs, downscale and upscale.
Bike rides on nearby trails.
Movie nights at local theaters.
Hikes in local parks and reservations.
Live music or karaoke at local bars and pubs.
Indoor activities such as billiards, bowling, and rock climbing.
Cultural events, such as visiting local museums or art exhibitions.
Game and card nights or pool parties and BBQs at members' houses.
Day trips to the casinos, harbor party cruises, or fishing cruises.
Outdoor sports, such as flag football, softball, volleyball, and ultimate.
Other outdoor activities, such as mini golf, paintball and road races.
Stump team trivia at local restaurants and bars.
Attending local minor league baseball and hockey games.
Weekend camping trips.
We want to keep the calendar full, but it can be hard for Organizers to schedule and attend events every week. If you have boundless energy - or even only a little bit of energy but a strong interest in some activity or location, please volunteer to help out! We're always looking for new Event Organizers. If being an Organizer is too much of a commitment, please post your event ideas and suggestions in the message board. It is a great way to drum up interest for an activity you would like to see!
Membership is completely free of charge at this time, although some activities may be assessed a fee to cover upfront costs or to ensure that Yes RSVPs are honored. The Group Organizer pays Meetup to keep the group open, and the Assistant Organizers & Event Organizers spend time planning and keeping the calendar full - so buying us a beer every now and then would be a great way to show your appreciation!
These rules are mostly common sense, good manners, and respect. Unfortunately, we have had problems and misunderstandings in the past, so we want to be explicit with our expectations. Our goals are for members to have fun and meet people while feeling safe and comfortable attending our events. The rules serve to further our goals, and to help keep the group manageable for the Organizers.
Profile Photo. Members MUST have a clear, RECENT, recognizable photograph of themselves as this group's primary photo. The pictures help members recognize each other at events, which serves to make members more comfortable, while allowing Event Organizers to recognize members as well. Any member without an acceptable photo may be removed from the group.
Profile Questions. We are a social group, and part of that is getting to know each other. The profile questions help members to get to know each other. So we would like you to fill out the profile questions.
Private. We are a private group and your membership in the group must be approved by the Organizers. Your membership request will typically be approved within a few days. Membership will be delayed and could be declined if the photo is not acceptable.
Single. This group is for single people. If you are married, you should not be in this group. If you are separated, but not yet divorced, you may join the group, but please do not misrepresent yourself. We leave it up to members discretion to remove themselves from the group if they are no longer single.
Single does not mean "looking". The group welcomes both those who are looking to meet someone and those who simply want to expand their circle of friends. Please DO NOT ASSUME that other members are looking for a date.
Respect other members. Members are under no obligation to make or accept advances. "No thanks" means "No thanks" - do not persist in unwanted contact. This group is not a substitute for internet dating sites Do NOT contact other members that you have not met and who have not otherwise indicated a desire to be contacted. If you are attracted to another member, then go to an event that they are also attending!
General behavior. The Organizers put time, effort, and money into running the group and we want to have successful and fun events. If a member is creating a disturbance in the group, then an Organizer will take action to maintain the health of the group. For minor problems, an Organizer may talk to the offending member about the behavior and ask them to stop. However, for major problems or repeated minor incidents, the member will simply be removed from the group without warning. If you have concerns about another member, PLEASE bring your concerns to the attention of the Organizer. Your concerns will be treated as confidential to the extent possible.
Welcoming. We don't want to create a "popularity contest" atmosphere; we welcome anyone who is single. We do not discriminate on race, religion, politics, nationality, ancestry, body type, being divorced, having kids, education, job, home town, sexual orientation, whatever... Even Yankees fans are allowed!
Pay for yourself. Members are responsible for paying all event costs for admission, meals, or fees for themselves, including taxes and gratuity. Do not short the bill and do not stiff the wait staff. And please bring CASH! - some establishments will not split the bill across multiple credit cards.
Message board. Members are encouraged to use the message board to discuss the group and activities. Please refrain from outside discussions such as business solicitation, politics, and personal affairs. Organizers have the right to remove all inappropriate discussions on the message board.
RSVP. RSVP is used to let others know if you will be attending an event. Please RSVP Yes or No and honor your commitment. Organizers plan events, make reservations, reserve tables, and work with establishments to plan these events for all of us and they depend on the RSVP list in order to plan a successful event. We understand circumstances change, so please be respectful of the Event Organizers and update your attendence as necessary. Should you no longer be able to attend an event please make every attempt to change your RSVP, contact the Organizer of the event, or post a comment on the event page. This will prevent you from being considered a "No Show". Be aware of RSVP limits, time frames, and waiting lists as set forth by the Organizer of the Event. Make sure to note your position and status in the waiting list as your RSVP may become a YES if space permits. This is controlled by the Organizer of the event.
Inactivity. We want you to attend events and meet people - that's why we're here! But we are also a singles' group, which is often only a temporary state. Any member inactive for 5 months will be removed from the group. An RSVP or attendance to an event is not required to be considered "active". Simply log onto our Meetup page at any time.
Event Cancellation. Sometimes events will be canceled if there is not sufficient interest, or due to circumstances beyond our control (such as the weather for outdoor events). The minimum attendance will vary depending on the event and Organizer and may not be explicitly listed. Events may be canceled at any time up to the RSVP deadline. If you RSVP Yes to an event, you will be notified if the event is canceled.
You are responsible for yourself at all events attended. When joining CMS and attending events you agree to abide by all local and state laws, rules, and regulations. You also agree to NOT hold Organizers of events or Meetup responsible for any incidents that may arise.
