RULES OF CONDUCT - PLEASE READ BEFORE JOINING:
COMMUNICATION: This is your group. Our goal is to make new friends and have fun. With the amount of members we will have, we can’t always expect that everyone will get along. We are all adults so we expect everyone to at least try to be cordial to everyone else. Think of it as a work situation and try to just get along. If you are having an issue with someone, please let an organizer know. Send us an email or text, or let us know in person that you are having issues with someone. Negativity in the group will be addressed. We don’t want anyone to feel uncomfortable.
RSVPs: If you RSVP “yes” to an event, PLEASE SHOW UP! This way we will know who to look for and wait for. If you don’t think you are going to make it to an event, please change your status to “no” and let an organizer or event host know if possible. You will only be counted as a “no-show” if you don’t show up AND don’t contact an organizer or event host to let them know you aren’t able to make it to an event. Please don't just show up at an event without RSVPing first. We need to know how many people to plan for. If you are at an event and need/want to leave early or want to go exploring by yourself, please let the event host know. We always like to keep track of everyone in attendance so no one gets left behind.
ATTENDANCE: We encourage all members to attend at least one event every three months. We always have something going on each month! Members who have not attended an event in six months may be removed from the group. Failure to show up at an event without contacting an organizer or event host may get you removed from the group if it becomes a pattern. Understandably, things sometimes come up. If you RSVP’d “yes” and cannot make the event, at last-minute, please contact an organizer or event host.

ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION: Please be responsible for your alcohol consumption. We want every member to get home safe. If you feel you’ve had too much, please let one of us know so we can help find a way to get you home!
EVENT COSTS: Simply put, if you can’t afford to go to an event that is costly, then don’t go! You are expected to pay your own way. While we prefer to have events that are free or very low cost, there are some that are more costly than others. Don’t expect others to pay your way. This includes asking others to borrow money for tickets to an event or to pay for dinner, or to give you a ride without giving them a predetermined agreed amount of money for gas.
TRANSPORTATION: You are responsible for getting yourself to and from each event. We do have many events where we carpool. In these cases, please be courteous to your driver and pitch in a couple of bucks for gas. Please do not make others feel guilty about you not being able to attend an event because you don’t have transportation.
ACCOMMODATIONS: If you require special needs when attending an event, please make the appropriate accommodations beforehand. The Organizers can not and will not be held liable for any potential situation that may result. Please read the legal disclaimer.
GUESTS: Guests and friends are encouraged to attend, so if you want to bring someone who is not in our group along, please add the number of guests when you RSVP. No more more than 2 guests, please.
PROFILES: While we respect your privacy, members must post a picture of themselves in their profile.
BUSINESS PROMOTION: Please refrain from promoting your business or enterprise at events. If you would like to help sponsor our group, that’s great! We can arrange for advertising your business on this site. Please see or contact an organizer for details.
BANNED MEMBERS: Unfortunately, we may have to ban a few members from the group. Banned members will not be able to rejoin if they try to under another name, alias or e-mail address.
IDEAS FOR EVENTS: This is your group! Members are encouraged to post ideas up that may be turned into actual events at some point. So, if you see something in the newspaper, or an area event magazine that sounds interesting, please post it up on the site or let us know. Our members are the eyes and ears of the organization!
GOLDEN RULE: Treat others with respect, the way you would wish to be treated! We want everyone to make new friends within this group!
We look forward to meeting you, and we hope you have fun here, and make some new friends!
