THIS IS NOT A DATING SITE/IS NOT A SITE FOR ADVERTISING/OR PROMOTING YOUR PARTICULAR POINTS OF VIEWS/RELIGIOUS/POLITICAL OR OTHERWISE-ANYONE DOING SO WILL BE BANNED WITHOUT NOTICE.
ALWAYS CHECK EVENT POSTINGS FOR UPDATES/CANCELLATIONS/RAIN DATES/CHANGES IN DETAILS ETC. (including just prior to event). If you are leading an event, please post a phone #, so people can contact you by phoning/texting you just prior to event-in case they are lost/nearby etc.
We wait "just" a few minutes for late-comers/so give yourself plenty time to arrive on time as a group courtesy(especially if this is a new venue for you). STRICT RULE: AT LEAST 3 PEOPLE NEED TO SHOW IN ORDER FOR AN EVENT TO PROCEED.
POSTED Events must be at a Public Venue. **To post a private venue event you must be a member for at least one year.
If you do become a dating couple, it is expected that you both will take a leave from the group. You can always rejoin if things don't work out. ALL MEMBERS ARE EXPECTED TO ATTEND AT LEAST 4 ACTIVITIES/EVENTS/HIKES * EVENTS/HIKES ARE NOT PROFESSIONALLY RUN AND OFTEN NOT WELL-KNOWN BY MEMBERS WHO POST THEM INCLUDING MYSELF (ORGANIZER). If you have a need to be more informed you are free to investigate the venue yourself. We do not necessarily have a sweep at hikes unless someone volunteers. YOU MUST BE FLEXIBLE/NO CRITICS ALLOWED. PLEASE BRING/CARRY AN EMERGENCY PHONE NUMBER WITH YOU.
ALL EVENTS ARE AT YOUR OWN RISK AND BY JOINING US AT ANY EVENT YOU ARE AGREEING TO THIS PREMISE. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ADD VARIETY/NEW EXPERIENCES BY POSTING AN EVENT/HIKE. HIKES ARE EASY(flat) 3 miles TO MODERATE, (with inclines) TO 4-8 MILES LENGTH. Some members post hikes that are longer/more moderate to strenouous. **IF YOU CAN'T HANDLE A LITTLE UNCERTAINTY, ARE NOT OVER 50, OR UNATTACHED OR IF THIS GROUP IS NOT A GOOD FIT FOR YOU THEN OTHER MEETUP GROUPS MAY BE MORE APPROPRIATE (OR YOU COULD START YOUR OWN GROUP). SINGLE GUESTS OVER 50 ARE ALLOWED "occasionally"(BUT NOT BOYFRIENDS/GIRLFRIENDS).
It is important to keep your RSVP up to date, so change it if you decide to not come afterall-THAT WAY WE CAN KEEP AN ACCURATE HEAD COUNT at the site. AND,PLEASE DO NOT RSVP TO EVENTS THAT HAVE BEEN LIMITED TO A CERTAIN NUMBER UNLESS YOU ARE FAIRLY SURE YOU WILL BE ABLE TO ATTEND. Anyone who "repetitively" does not show a sincere effort to abide by rules to a significant degree will be deleted from the group by myself without further notice.
I AM ON MANY HIKES AND MY PHONE (908) 917-7291. I WILL RECEIVE CALLS ONLY ONE HALF HR. PRIOR TO THE EVENT IN CASE YOU ARE CLOSE BY AND WE CAN TRY AND HELP YOU WITH LAST MINUTE DIRECTIONS. *THE GROUP WAITS 10 MINS. AFTER POST- TIME, BUT USUALLY NO LONGER. FOR HIKES ALWAY BRING ENOUGH LAYERS, PROPER FOOTWEAR, LIQUID/NOURISHMENT AND A EMERGENCY CONTACT #.
IMPORTANT: AGAIN, REMEMBER TO CHECK FOR ANY CANCELLATIONS (RE-SCHEDULES) JUST PRIOR TO LEAVING YOUR HOME.
MOST IMPORTANT REQUIREMENT- LET'S HAVE FUN!!!! No kids/no pets.
Please take a few minutes to read BELOW also so you really understand who we are! You are responsible for getting yourself to the activity site-give yourself plenty of travel time, especially if the venue is new to you. AND, CARPOOLS CAN BE ARRANGED DIRECTLY WITH ONE ANOTHER OR SOMETIMES A CARPOOL MTG. SITE IS POSTED.
Great opportunity to meet some nice, fun, people--don't miss out!! Just show up-THE REST IS EASY!
More than one hikeevent for the same day. If you aren’t able to travel to a hike/event, go ahead and post one closer to you. There can be multiple events for the same day. It's easy to post just follow the cues (begin with red icon on left side pg.)follow the prompts.
