Long Beach, CA
Is this an active meetup?
Very much so! We usually have at least one event a month, but past experience has shown that meetups have generally been even more frequent. Take a look at some of the group pictures for events and meetups that we've had.
Are all of your meetups in Long Beach?
This is a Long beach based meetup, so most meetups do happen around the area. However, we do take "field trips" to eventgs outside the area, such as the Discovery Science Center in Anaheim, or the Renaissance Faire in Irwindale.
Am I too old/too young to join?
We have a large age range for this group. While the median age seems to be around mid-20s, we have some members in their teens, and some members who are middle aged. Most of our meetup events are age appropriate for almost anyone. We don't care how old you are. if you are looking to make friends and explore your favorite geeky past times (or get introduced to new ones) with a group of fun, respectful people, then this is the place for you!
I keep seeing references to Secret Passages; what's that all about?
Secret Passages was the sci-fi/fantasy/horror book and collectibles store owned by Sophie. This group was originally created as a social attachment to the store. Secret Passages has since closed, but the meetup remains active and has taken on a life of it's own!
Can anyone start a new meetup event?
Any group member can suggest a new meetup. As a general rule, once you have at least 3 people who have RSVPed for the event, then it goes from being a "suggested meetup" to a scheduled meetup. However, if the event is something you really want to see happen, contact Sophie beforehand, and she may not object to making your meetup scheduled before you get the 3 RSVPs.
