Help support your MeetupChip in
Before you consider joining this group, please read this photo policy first. We are a private Meetup group and non-members cannot see your profile. Our policy is that you add a full-face photo of just yourself !! This helps organizers and members put a face with your name. No sunglasses, no photo-shopping, no couples photos-even if you are both joining, no UFO's, no Aliens, no babies, cars, bikes, animals, ghosts, cartoons, landscapes....JUST YOU!! There is a very good reason why we require this.
We have been having a problem with new members not adhering to our photo policy. You will not be approved if this photo policy is not accepted by you. Also, please use your real first name! (you don't need to add a last name unless you want to.)
For certain member's privacy you must live locally, within a 30 to 40 mile radius to ensure participation in meetings. For specific reasons, no one under 18 is permitted to attend these meetings.
On April 2016, we celebrated our 8 year anniversary. In June 2016, we started video taping our guest speakers.
Who We Are: Our group is for serious minded adults interested in the UFO phenomena. We also discuss various other current world news situations of special or critical significance. You should have some knowledge on this subject to keep up with our general discussions. Our members are very knowledgeable and our meetings are always interesting as well as educational. Member participation is always encouraged.
There are no membership fees to attend the monthly meetings unless we have an in-house guest. We often invite internationally known UFO researchers and authors to SKYPE in, or if available come in person to our monthly meetings to present to our group. For those meetings we charge $15.pp for our guests overnight hotel accommodations, their travel expenses, dinner immediately following the meeting and breakfast the next day before they leave.
As of August 2016, we are now able to afford to fly in presenters, starting with Nick Redfern, best-selling author of 36 books and world famous researcher and presenter.
