Hi All-apparently to date we are the only meetup group "worldwide" for over 50 single hikers. (Note: Not anymore, apparently there are now 3 world-wide);
--SO WE WERE THE FIRST!!!
**Disclaimer: As a MEMBER/ATTENDEE AT ANY OF OUR GROUP ACTIVITIES, you agree that you and any guests are capable of participating in this event, will abide by all rules, regulations, laws and ordinances imposed by the venue, park or municipality and will not hold the organizer or any member of the leadership team liable for any losses, damages or personal injury incurred as a result of participation.
Please do not make any changes to group event plans UNLESS you confer with the person who posted the event first. Please post 1 event/year-it's easy, but not a requirement. JUST ASK ME FOR brief format/or to show you how/walk you thru it.
DO NOT POST YOUR LAST NAME. POST A PICTURE OF YOURSELF. ALWAYS CHECK FOR CANCELLATIONS (ESPECIALLY LAST MINUTE) PRIOR TO LEAVING YOUR HOME/OFFICE
Members can pay their $5/year membership fee via Meetup.
Each member's yearly payment will be automatically tracked. For members who choose not to use this method of payment, you can mail it to your group organizer: Pat Medallis, 706 Bermuda Drive, Branchburg, NJ 08853 ph: (908)917-7291 or give to me at an event (envelope with full name on it). I will note you pd. within a few days.
Each member will be expected to attend 2-4 hikes or events/year (that's one each season about). If you don't plan on being active enough, please don't join up at this time. * Bring a guest/friend if you like to help you "warm up". SINGLE Guests can attend a few times before joining/paying a membership fee. This meetup is for TRUE singles only (not for those who are in ANY kind of relationship). All comments need to be appropriate. If in doubt, don't post your comment. *If you do form a relationship with another member/once you realize it's going to be long-term, please resign (ie. after a few months). You can always rejoin again. **Meetup Org. now apparently automatically closes your membership if there is no activity for some time and/or if dues is not pd. It is mandatory that you change your rsvp if you change your mind about attending an event. Please do not carry on arguments with each other, especially on the site. If there are any problems, please let me know and I will try to problem solve.
We do not have any sponsors supporting our group. I'm hoping hikes/activities will occur all over NJ and surrounding areas for years to come. ANYONE can post a hike or activity and it's Very easy to do. (Just clk. on the red calendar icon on left to begin/calendar opens up/ clk. the tiny calendar icon again/then follow the prompts-don't forget to pg. all the way down and finalize). You can't make a mistake/and can edit-update as many times as you need to. Hikes/activities/carpools SHOULD NOT OCCUR if less than 3 people show up for safety reasons. The RULE IS if only 2 people show up at site of the activity it's needs to be canceled.
*** Looking forward to hiking/socializing/adventuring/getting or staying physically fit with all of you.
p.s. Each activity bring an emergency contact name/number in pocket in case emergency/or have your cell phone with an "in case of emergency"(ICE) number on it (on your person). Bring enough water, snacks, bug spray, sunscreen, walking sticks, sunglasses are a great help, waterproof hiking shoes are highly recommended. In winter dress in multiple layers, scarves, mittens (are better then gloves), hats, x-tra socks?
I'M SURE MOST EVERYONE IS FAMILIAR WITH AT LEAST ONE EASY-TO-MODERATE 3/4-6/7 mile HIKE, SO PLEASE POST SOME HIKE/ACTIVITY, as it helps with variety. NOT A REQUIREMENT, HOWEVER. Hike/activty CAN BE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD-really. It is imperative that you collect all "NON"-REFUNDABLE monies BEFORE making any reservations *And, remember if things don't go exactly as planned to enjoy the activity anyway!!! Group should always stay together. Thanks for remaining mindful/and abiding with ALL of the above information. Noone wants to be a policeman and neither do I. Pat M. (Organizer)
