This group is geared towards ALREADY ACTIVE 25-49.9 year old singles in and around the East Valley who enjoy socializing with other already active singles who share similar outdoor interests. If you are looking to join this group because you WANT to be active and currently lead a sedentary lifestyle, this is not the group for you right now. I suggest you start with the Phoenix 2-Hour Beginners hiking group before joining our group on hikes. We hike at a moderate pace and don't host beginner hikes.
We are 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 previously 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
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)
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!
