Hi Welcome to Fun Times with Friends Social Group :-)
This Social group is for singles, 45 and older who enjoy live music, dancing, kayaking, comedy clubs, dinners, local festivals, movies etc,
Our Group motto: All friends were strangers at one point in time.
Our group was founded with the intent to create a time and place for people to get together, let the cares of the week go, have a good time and develop friendships. Kindness, welcoming smiles, chatting with those sitting around you and good times develop friendships.
***Keep in mind this is NOT a 'dating or hook up group', if this is the reason you are joining this group please look elsewhere.
Most of our events are around music venues, the best time to socialize is the time allotted before the music.
Please review the ground rules for our group. All members are responsible for honoring these guidelines as a member of our group.
Membership: You must post a profile photo of yourself. Photo must be a profile type pic so event hosts can recognize you from the pic (Could you find the host if their profile photo was of a zebra?) If your profession is one in which a profile pic may pose concern for you due to facial recognition technologies, once this is verified we will accept an alternate pic as it is understood with these days a profile pic may not be ideal for you.
**Members of this group will agree to follow the following ground rules GROUP GROUND RULES**
[*] Kindness and Respect at all times. We are here to have a good time. Although there will be personality differences kindness is always the best choice. Gossiping about another member is NOT kind. Please keep any negativity to yourself. If the leadership team determines you to be negative or disrespectful within the group you may no longer be a member. No one likes everyone, however respect and kindness are still beneficial to all.
[*]Be mindful with your RSVP. RSVP of Yes indicate that you will be sitting with, socializing and participating in our events. Not showing up and last minute cancellations, are disrespectful to your fellow meetup members, those on the wait list, the venues, and the staff of the venues we frequent.
[*]When you RSVP = U will be there within 30 minutes of the stated RSVP time, if you know this is not possible, you should not RSVP. You can still show up and hang out, just not guaranteed a seat with us. Reserved seats unoccupied after 30 minutes of the RSVP will be released. Unoccupied reserved seats do not put a smile on the faces of management of the places we visit. This includes your plus 1.
[*]If you are on the wait list you can still attend, it just means you are not guaranteed a seat. if someone is a no show there may be seats :-)
[*]Cancellations the same day of an event will = a No Show. The definition of a No Show is when you sign up for an event and do not show up . Three No Shows and you will be removed from the group.
Understandably things can come up at the last minute, Please message me if you have an illness or emergency.
[*]If you are unable to make it, please do not post this in the comment section of the meet up,
[*]In the unfortunate instance we have to remove someone for disregarding the rules; our groups calendar is not to be shared with them, the person can not be a plus one of an RSVP, nor are they to sit with the group and an RSVP-ed table.
These rules are very basic and truly come down to respect and kindness, if you compare our group to others, it is one of the least stringent.
If at any time you feel uncomfortable, for any reason please let the host or the organizer know.
Welcome to Fun Times with Friends Come out and Enjoy!
Thank you to all the members who make this group so enjoyable.
Every 8 - 12 months or so the data base will be purged to identify the members who have not attended an event. If after this amount of time a member has not attended an event they may be removed.
