Welcome new Meetup member. We are glad that you have chosen to take a look at our group. The policies that we have put into place are for your protection. We want you to feel safe to meet new friends and make lasting memories. We have been planning Meetup events for 7 years now and believe we are the best Meetup group in South Florida. Please take a few moments to look over our site, our events and photographs of 2007-2014. Also, please read the information below to assist you in your decision making.
I have always promoted that this group is a safe haven for everyone and that our main purpose is to gather and make social friends. This is not a dating group, a singles hook-up group or a one night stand group. If this is what you are looking for, please do not sign up. There are other groups for that.
We want this to be a group of men and women that can be friends and look out for each other as well. If you belong to a singles group please abide by the guidelines of Tri County Adventures when you attend our events. While we understand the law of attraction, we do not condone trolling for dates and pick ups at our Meetups.
Anti-Solicitation Policy:Networking Marketing, MLMs and anything of that type of set up is not welcome in this group. If we find that you have joined this group under any other pretext than being social, you will be removed. Please do not hand out any business cards at any of our Meetups unless you first have the permission from Big Dave.
Our group as well as others in Meetup are very good at policing odd, strange and/or bad behavior. If you see or hear of any anti-social or aggressive behavior in the group, please feel free to contact me to discuss the matter further.
We are a free-spirited, easy going and welcoming group. We pride ourselves in being inclusive. We are not afraid, however, to confront aggressive behavior and provide solutions that may include removal from the group.
Charities: For some of our events we will bring in a charity and raise money for a cause. So know you are helping to support a good cause while having fun. These events are coming soon.
Group disclaimer: By joining this group you acknowledge that you have done so of your own free will and understand that membership is voluntary and expressly waive any and all such claims against each and every other member in the group.
Real person policy: All profiles must be of a actual person. Any profile representing a business or organization is not acceptable. We reserve the right to remove any such profile at this time. If you are interesting in sponsoring or advertising on this site, please contact Big Dave.
Anti-Harassment policy: We reserve the right to remove any member @ any time for any inappropriate action or remarks made toward other members. This includes, but is not limited to message boards, posts, direct emails, profile comments and /or live interaction at any of our events. If you are being harassed in any way please let me or one of the organizers know so that we can handle it accordingly. All discussions will be held in confidentiality and anonymously.
Harassment and Stalking are strong accusations and must therefore be investigated. Please come to me within a reasonable amount of time so that we can properly investigate. Please do not spread rumors of harassment and stalking within the group as these are serious accusations and can be construed as intimidation within itself.
Anti-Poaching policy: We reserve the right to remove any member at any time for attempting to poach or solicit other members for other Meetup groups.This includes mentioning other Meetup groups in your RSVP, your comments, discussion in person or on the Meetup site. Members are free to join any group they choose and there shouldn't be any reason to poach members for your Meetup group. Your Meetup group should speak for itself. This could be construed as a form of harassment and subject to immediate removal.
No show policy: At the discretion of the organizer or host , if you do not show up to an event that you RSVPd for, the host has the right to put you on the waiting list for the same recurring event.
The NO policy: This policy is being implemented for 2014. There are members of this group that respond "no" to every event. If you respond "no" more than 100 times in this group, you may be removed.
Videos and photograph policy: By joining this group and attending any Meetup with Tri County Adventures you agree to allow your photograph and/or video taken for promotional and social purposes. Your photos will show up in the Internet and You Tube. The organizers have the right to remove any photos of any event at any time.
By joining Tri County you agree to abide by these rules and uphold them to the best of your ability.
Thank your participation and involvement with our group here at Tri County Adventures. We want to keep this group safe for all members to move around and meet new friends.
