What do you hope to see in this group, in terms of activities and events, or just in general?
We are a group of adult women (18+) focused on providing a non-judgmental social environment to bring geek girls together for friendship and fun. We welcome all types of geekdom, whether you are a gamer, bookworm, arts and crafts enthusiast, movie buff, anime nut, tech geek or a huge fan of something niche!
We do our very best to provide a wide variety of geeky activities, while bringing business to our local comic stores, conventions, costume shops, game stores, libraries and restaurants.
Some of our regular events include:
Monthly General Meetup at a local community center! Monthly sci-fi and fantasy book club! Monthly crafting get-together--bring your own project! Quarterly Geek Girls party with creative themes & prizes! Weekly themed board game sessions on Fridays! Weekly hikes and other fitness-friendly activities! Weekly (or bimonthly) tabletop RPG sessions! Weekly Magic: The Gathering on Tuesdays!
We also schedule plenty of other activities as we go, such as: Art studio projects Brunches & dinners Conventions & faires Co-working sessions Exploring local attractions Movie matinees Museum visits Theater shows Viewing parties
Join us and (after your membership is approved) you will be able to join in on these fun events, and many more! We welcome both cis and trans women in our group.
A note about the application process:
Generally what we're looking for through the application is some idea of your personality and how you self-identify as a geek. For best results, please answer all application questions (a short sentence per answer is fine) and make sure your application and Meetup profile include at least three of the following criteria: A user name that looks like a real, human name A photo of yourself Creative application answers (questions 1-3) Specific geeky activities you want to do with us (question 4) Refer to yourself as female in some way Belong to other meetups that are female-centric Have geeky activities in your Meetup interests
If you do decide to reapply, also consider revealing a bit more about yourself on Meetup.com. Having your real-life photo, list of Meetups joined, or list of Meetup interests visible gives us more to work with when judging whether you are a fit for our group.
The Leadership Team reserves final judgment on whether to approve or decline an application.
