This group is geared towards 25-49.9 year old singles in and around the East Valley who enjoy an active lifestyle and socializing with other singles who share similar outdoor interests. We are now a private group and you will need to be approved by an organizer to become a member. This group does not host (and won't host) large "drink fest" mixers.
Some examples of events hosted by this meetup include:
day hikes / sightseeing trips
fitness oriented events in the Scottsdale green belt
indoor events like rock climbing, ice skating, and bowling
How are we different from other singles groups? Lisa (the organizer of this group) and Leana (the co-organizer) care more about active membership numbers than inflated membership numbers. As a result after 9 months of inactivity members are removed from the group. Some Meetup groups don't remove any members due to inactivity and membership numbers are mostly inactive members. Another way we are different is our core organizing team likes to get to know all of our members who show up for events. If you come to more than 1 event we know who you are when you come back! We try very hard to socialize with everyone. We have been told by several members lately that our group is their favorite meetup group. Fantastic!
The organizers of this group appreciate when members change their RSVPs if they can not attend an event for which they have scheduled. The Meetup standard is 50% turnout and we tend to have closer to 90% because we seem to attract more thoughtful members! :0) Of course a few times so many members have changed their RSVPs that we have to cancel the event. But I would rather do that than go and wait for half an hour for nobody.
Please note that we mostly host events in Tempe and South Scottsdale because we have found those locations attract a lot of members. We also don't consider San Tan Valley the "east valley" since it is in Pinal County and not Maricopa County. People living in San Tan Valley are welcome to join the group, but we don't host events anywhere near San Tan Valley.
If you are interested in hosting events please reach out one of organizers and we would happy to discuss that with you!
