Focus: We do a lot of hikes and bike rides, usually in the San Jose / Campbell area. Most will be kept short and easy to make them accessible for beginners or intermediates. Some occasional camping and skiing trips may also be offered.
Other Events: We may also explore and offer other types of events at times, including: Movies, group dinners, bowling, sports events, cultural events and other social events. Your ideas are welcome...
Volunteering: If you attend any activities in this group, and you enjoy yourself, consider volunteering as an Event Host. You may enjoy sharing the activity with others, and it can also be a great way to meet others, too.
Donations: When you attend an event, you may be asked to donate $1. There are many expenses in keeping this group running, including fees paid to meetup.com for this web site, and other permits, parking passes, phone, gas, printing, etc. This does not cover the time spent organizing, planning, and communicating with members, but being able to cover related costs is a big help. Thank you! (P.S. - if you have donated $5 or more within one years time, consider yourself done. Thanks!).
Profiles: Meetup limits us to have only one profile photograph. Therefore, all members (existing and prospective) must have a complete profile with an appropriate primary photograph. If your profile photo has an image that's too small, shows "no photo yet', has you wearing a hat, sunglasses or something that obscures your face, contains an image of a pet, cartoon, landscape, or of someone else, it needs to be changed because obviously these are not appropriate. Make your primary photo big enough and clear enough so we know it's you. While you're updating your photo, please complete the questions about your interests for the profile.
"3 Strikes" Rule and Zero Tolerance Rule: There are certain "bad behaviors" that are frowned upon that could ultimately get you removed from this Meetup: excessive late change (of under 12 hours) of RSVPs to "NO", no-shows, crashing of Meetups and not following event rules. This Meetup has a standing "3 Strikes And You're Out" rule for these infractions. Other "bad behaviors" are definite no-nos for which we have Zero Tolerance. A notable one is stalking or harassing Meetup staff or members. That will get you permanently banned.
Events both big and small: Meetup has grown rather large since it began, and our group currently is in the thousands of members. At the same time, I know that smaller group sizes (of 10 people or less) are ideal for getting to know each other. For these reasons, I will try to offer monthly events for both large and smaller groups. And if you want to get into an event but can't because of popularity, you can always talk with me about volunteering...
Thank you, and I welcome your feedback.
