This group is open to anyone transplanted to the Knoxville/Smoky Mountain area from other parts of the country or world. We are welcoming, inclusive, and tolerant to all and we expect our members to be the same. Join us if you are looking for friends, or networking, and things to do around town. Many of us have no family here. Examples of our meetups are dinners, brunches, festivals, entertainment events, game nights, free or cheap classes, outdoor activities. Members are expected to be active - either by coming to events or suggesting events; you are expected to show up to something at least every 6 months.
Due to problems with an ex-member, IT IS NOW MANDATORY THAT YOU HAVE A PHOTO OF YOURSELF AND A REAL NAME. This group is completely private, and only members will see your photo. When people don't post photos of themselves, I have to reject their membership, because I cannot trust them to add it later (they never do). If you get rejected, please fix the reason why and submit again. Thank you for your understanding.
I create many meetups that I do not attend, but that doesn't mean others can't. Everyone's interests are different and I try my best to please all of you. Our group is very diverse….singles, couples, parents, single parents, seniors, but for the most part, the majority of members do not have children under 18 at home. Therefore most of our social outings are adult-only but there are plenty of festivals and activities I create that are family-friendly. Just because I don't make meetups at bars or clubs doesn't mean we can't have that - we just need someone to host it (show up!). Anyone can create a meetup. Meetup locations are scattered around the area, there are not many held in far west Knoxville, because I live in Seymour. I could use more assistant organizers to plan events in Knoxville. I want everyone to feel that this is YOUR group and you can do what you want with it. We sure could use a guy to plan more "guy activities." I want this to be an active group and so I remove members who have been inactive for a year.
LASTLY....Please note that like the majority of other meetup groups, we have dues. Apparently some people are offended when they are asked to help offset the cost of meetup.com. If you have any problem paying dues, please do not join this group.
