Monthly General Meeting

Join us for friendship, camaraderie, fun, men's work, and personal growth. The South Bay Nation of Men meets on the first Saturday of each month, rain or shine, promptly at 8 AM. Breakfast (no charge) is served immediately afterwards. New members are always welcomed. 8-10 AM, Bramhall Park in San Jose. 

Attendance is generally 50 or so men. The Nation of Men is about friendship and camaraderie with mutual support to help us all be better men. Meetings mix social interaction with opportunities for introspection or personal growth and fun. 

The free breakfast after the meeting gives you an additional chance to meet members. All men are welcome and there is no charge to attend the meetings. We might even give you a cigar!

New to the Nation of Men and Want to Find out More? Plan on staying for the orientation that takes place after the general meeting. It helps men become part of the organization quickly. You will meet many of the members, learn our customs and principles, and have opportunities for growth and relationship.

    Wow! Very excellent meeting. Even though it was drizzling we still had over 50 men show up! Great energy and I loved the way the new men fully participated. I had a conflict and was not going to come. Had to leave while most men were enjoying a wonder feast.

    Glad I showed up.

    Awesome meeting John!

    60 men gathering together in the rain....what could be better! The content around leadership/king-energy was compelling and breakfast was sensational.

    I liked the opening when we spontaniously asked the "old timers" to explain to the new guests why we were meeting at 8 am on a winter Saturday morning in the rain

    got a little rain and a little wind but nothing bad. Turnout was great, content was great, the men were great and the food was outstanding. I was glad to see so many men show up with the weather as questionable as it was.

    Excellent meeting -- it started out raining, but that did not seem to dampen our spirits.

    I very much look forward to seeing you men, as well as enjoying free breakfast by Free Lunch, which is kind've confusing.

    Mike, I appreciate this stance: bringing our own cups and flatware to breakfast. This kind of stewardship is a "kingly" attribute.

    Very good of you for giving us the thorough heads up, Mike! As such and in many other ways, you are a "model man". : )

    Free Lunch is doing breakfast at this Saturday's General Meeting. In the interest of the environment, we will only have very minimal plates, cups, spoons, forks, etc., and they will be prioritized for kids, those who are aren't on -Essential or MeetUp, and anyone else with a good excuse for why they didn't know to bring their own. So please bring what eating equipment you need.

    Other than a cup, though, most of you probably won't strictly need anything. The breakfast can generally be hand-held unless you are on a low-carb or gluten-free diet (but if you are, definitely bring a plate and a fork).

    The current weather forecast for Saturday morning in San Jose is decreasing chance of rain (70% at 7am, 30% at 10am). Dress accordingly.

    See you on Saturday!

    -- Mike (and the rest of Free Lunch)
