This group is for people who are interested in activities in the East / Outer Eastern suburbs (mainly Ringwood to Yarra Glen / Chirnside Park to Wantirna) such as having coffee, brunch, lunch or dinner or going to the movies in Croydon, Boronia, Chirnside Park, Eastland or Knox.
Please remember: As the organiser this is a voluntary position and I also work. I may not get to answering your request for membership immediately and it may take between 2 & 3 weeks, depending on whether I am busy with the group activities / personal life / work life.
If you follow the simple instructions for answering the membership questions it will certainly make for approval of your request for membership faster.
Generally the age group ranges from early 30s to mid 60s with married and single members.
This is NOT a match making / singles group, this is purely a group for making new friends.
Please treat each member in this group with respect.
The rules are few and far between.
If you RSVP “yes” to an event, please make sure you turn up - or cancel your RSVP by changing your status – this needs to be changed prior to the closing date for the event, otherwise you will be marked a “No Show”. A No Show is particularly annoying if there is a waiting list for an event.
Please do not respond “No” to every event, it only blocks up the emails of the hosts. You only need to change your RSVP from Yes to No if you can’t attend.
I cull the membership on a monthly basis and delete members who have not checked in for 3 months. I also removed members who have not attended a function every 3 months. We assume that if we have not put on an event in 3 months that appeals to you, then it is assumed that we are not offering what you are looking for and will remove you from the group.
One failure to attend functions will be forgiven.
Two failures to attend functions will be frowned upon.
Three failures to attend functions will result in you being banned.
