Hello and welcome to our wonderful group, Ladies on the Loose!
Looking for like-minded "50-70 something" ladies to socialize and travel with? Let's get together and plan some great adventures! Day trips, cruises, or a weekend in San Francisco. Anything is possible when a group of focused ladies get together. This is our opportunity to carry out our "bucket list"...
Karen Ramos is our organizer. Karen and Kathy Stevens have been co-organizers for the past year - and thanks to supporting LOTL for the past year. Sue S began this group over 4 years ago - and we owe her a great thanks to offering women of the somewhat "older" variety a place to meet like-minded women for travel, movies, and anything else that involves smiling and laughing together! Let's keep the adventures going for a lot more years of fun activities!
The intention of the group is to bring straight, females, between the ages of 50 - 75 who like to socialize and travel from the greater Sacramento area. This would include local events, movie nights, day trips, plays, dinners, hiking, biking, kayaking, golf, wine tasting , weekend getaways and even extended vacations and cruises. We also do some volunteering! The list is endless.
We welcome all your suggestions and we encourage each of our members to be active and post activities. Please let Karen Ramos (or any of the event hosts) know your ideas and we will help you turn it into an event! We encourage everyone to host something and post their ideas. We are a pretty energetic group of women so look forward to your ideas and participation!
All members must post a profile picture of the themselves. This is more of safety issue and concern. This will enable all of us members to know who is attending our events, this is especially important if members open their homes for activities. Please comply with this request. Please contact Karen Ramos if there are circumstances where posting your picture may be a risk to you - we understand that this happens!
Membership dues are $10.00 per calendar year and are not pro-rated or refundable. Once membership is approved you have ONE MONTH from approval date to submit your dues. If dues are NOT submitted within one month it will be assumed you do not want to join and you will be removed from this membership.
We do not use the dues paymnet tool from Meetup due to cost. Therefore, please contact Karen Ramos or Sue S if you wish to mail a check, and you can also give us cash or check at an event.
For members on the roll as of January 1, 2015, you will have until January 31st to pay your membership fees.
When you RSVP "yes" for an event, please, do so conscientiously. If you are unable to attend you may change your RSVP or email the Organizer / host directly up to 48 hours PRIOR to an event date - cancellation later than 48 hours prior will be counted as a "no show". If you accumulate 3 "no shows" you may be dropped from the group. Thank you for understanding and complying. Please note this is extremely important, especially if there is a waitlist where we have to limit the number of people attending. This will enable other members, who would love to attend these events, to do so.
If you commit to an event and it cost money such as a hotel, play, or concert tickets you are committed to pay even if you have to cancel; provided the tickets and reservations have already been made. In addition; if you carpool, the riders should offer to pay gas to the driver. Please be considerate.
Please email Karen Ramos if you have questions, ideas, or concerns. Thank you for your interest and looking forward to meeting you at the next event!
