ZoomerangZ (Gals 55+ making Pals) Pages

Look back while going forward and clear that bucket list. You can do it with your Zoomerang Pals.

Make it happen with friends - visit, laugh, relax, movies, day trips, read, shop, card games, travel, etc. etc. Whatever event or experience you can think of, someone will be there to enjoy it with you. Have “Fun” and start enjoying life with new friends.

We are a 55+ women’s only social group. All women, single, married, retired, homemakers etc. are most welcome!

As our membership is limited, we encourage our members to socialize regularly. The group’s mission is to provide a great variety of social activities for our members; we have lunches, cards, book clubs, theatre, day trips, golf, stitch and bitch, and many other events. The goal is for our members to create friendships that will last a lifetime. So if you’re over 55 and looking to have some fun with some new gal pals please join us, we’re always looking for new members!

Organization

The group has an Organizer, an Assistant Organizer, and an Organizing Committee with 3 members and a Finance Committee with 4 members. All members are encouraged to join these committees on a rotating basis.

There is a $10.00 bi-annual fee to cover the cost of our membership in Meetup.com. Should you leave for whatever reason this will be returned to you.

We are embarking on an Ambassador Program for the Newcomer. Rather than have a lot of expectations it is hoped everyone will chip in. When a newcomer joins, if they so desire, they will be hooked up with a member who has at least a year’s standing to meet them at their first meet up, show them the ropes, explain the Calendar and Discussion Board to them and follow through with them with one or two emails to get them off of the ground. This is on a voluntary basis and when your name is called, you are highly encouraged to help volunteer. This should not be left for the Organizer to handle. It will only take 15 minutes out of your life.


Privacy and Other Policies

Please note that your first event must be in a public place. Please do not RSVP to a member’s home event if you have not attended an event at a public place. This is for the protection of all our members. Also, please do not bring a friend to a member’s home. Other events stipulate the option of bringing friends.

When adding your profile to the site use only your first name and an initial for your last name and enter your birth month and day for birthday greetings. A recent picture must also be posted.

We will not share your Personal Information, such as your e-mail address or name, with any organizations or persons outside our group. You can choose to submit your phone number to the group list if you wish. This list is only and exclusively shared with other members who submit their phone numbers. Members will not use the phone list to solicit members for any purpose or in any way. You may also opt-out at any time by sending a written request through our site to the group organizer.

We love to take pictures at our events! These pictures are for the private enjoyment and sharing on our ZoomerangZ site only so permission is not given to re-post anywhere else such as Facebook or other social media sites. By joining, you will have read the “Pages” section of the site and agree that all pictures taken at our events become property of the ZoomerangZ site forever and fully release the ZoomerangZ from any future liability related to the photographs. Pictures will not be removed from the event page and the Photo section of our site. As part of our Privacy Policy, we will never use them in marketing our group, nor will they be shared with any organization nor used for any solicitation. They are memories of our time together.

We do recognize that some people do not want their picture taken so if you do not wish your picture to be taken, please tell the woman taking the shot not to include you. If that’s not possible, please ask her to wait until you walk away, or, you hold up a menu!


Policies

Once our new members familiarize themselves with the group and its members it is hoped that they will start to post events themselves No event is too small. A night at the movies is a great first event. We welcome variety so please bring your favorite events and hobbies to the group; you never know who may enjoy them too. Please contact anyone who is noted as an Event Organizer under the Members tab on the website for help with the website logistics.

When signing up for an event please make every effort to attend. We realize that last minute cancellations are inevitable, life happens, but please respect your hostess and the time she has taken to plan the event.

Criticism of another member or of a meet up on a public forum will not be tolerated. A warning will be issued to the offender and if they receive 3 warnings than the organizing committee and organizer shall deal with offender and the penalty could be removal.

As our group’s mission is to socialize, members are encouraged to attend either/ or at least every other bi-monthly Chit Chat and Mingle event or brunch. These are the events where our newcomers are welcomed and introduced to other members of the group so attendance is strongly encouraged. Please remember the greeting you were accorded and give back.

Please do not wear perfumes or scented products to Zoomerang events. There are a number of women in the group who have allergies and have sensitivities to scented products.

The policies you agreed to when you joined meetup.com are at www.meetup.com. These policies similarly apply to the ZoomerangZ.

One Final Thing

We are not a political organization and we discourage unproductive complaining about members or events. However, we recognize that problems in any group are sometimes unavoidable. If you have a problem or a complaint please come forward to the Organizer, Assistant Organizer, Organizing Committee or any senior member of the group. We will do our best to resolve it before small problems become big problems.
