We are The original "San Diego Baby Boomers" Meetup Group founded in October, 2008 by our friend Deb M. not to be confused with any others. We are a well established PRIVATE, not for profit group and proud of the 1,380+ past events that we've shared and look forward to continued success as an ALL ACTIVITY INCLUSIVE GROUP FOR BOOMERS and friends!
To join this group you should be a Baby Boomer and or comfortable with this era. If you are one of the 78 million people residing in the U.S. who were born between 1964 and 1946 then this group could be for you! We are the ones who are re-inventing age, seeing ourselves at least 12 years younger than we are and continually moving the age of the proverbial "hill". Our focus is to those who would like to make some new friends in our age range and see them again at upcoming events, including a variety such as themed dance parties, live music, kayaking, outdoor concerts, picnics by the bay, tennis, walks along our beautiful coast, wine tasting, cool inland hikes, rock & roll, salsa, swing, potlucks, cultural events, go-cart racing, happy hours, game nights, target shooting, movies, art tours and volunteering in our community. Our events typically range in attendance of 1 to 200 members throughout the year, depending on the activity and EVERYONE is welcomed to join in on the fun! We currently have Assistant Organizers and 5 Event Hosts, some retired who host events during the day, some are working part or full time and host early to late afternoons, evenings and sometimes on the weekends however all are seasoned leaders who donate their creativity and time, are passionate about their events and look forward to sharing them with you! We are not a dedicated "singles" group however if you meet someone GREAT, our goal is to simply make friends, have fun and share our Boomer experiences.
