What we're about

This group is a spin off or extension of the incredibly popular 5280 Singles, with the idea singles over 40 or 45 can now attend events occasionally designed for singles from their 40's through their mid sixties. Nearly half of the 5280 Singles membership are under 40 which is wonderful, but sometimes intimidating if you are fifty something or even 60. We will attend many non age-specific events with the original 5280 Singles groups but also start to offer many age exclusive events apart from the original group.

Welcome to Colorado's largest singles organization. Our group's success is with hosting organized low key events as well as professionally run social events. We will host as many as 20 events per month, and at least 5 varieties of events each month. We are a private group that you may become a member for free or increase your involvement and savings with the purchase of a 5280 Singles membership card for only $30. The current card is good through 2020 and allows our members to save $5 on each admission to our popular singles mixers, our BBQ's, large dance parties and special events. It is also recognized around town at many eateries and bars where presenting your card allows you to get your first two drinks for the price of one every time you visit, (one BOGO per visit). There are savings on many other contractors and vendors around town as well. Members can also attend our networking after hours happy hours at no cost to market their businesses for free as well as use their membership card to advertise on our website at no cost. Details of our discounts and events can be found at our website at www.5280singles.org, where you can purchase your membership card today. We ask that you submit a recognizable picture of yourself to be approved for this Meetup group.

Our groups' challenge is to organize the best large and small events for singles and non married couples along the front range. Some of our large events are also open for married couples to attend, such as large dance parties, sporting events, movies and dinners. We know having fun is the best way to make friends, meet other people and build relationships. We are not a dating group. If you are joining this group just to email and hit on other group members whom you have not gotten to know in person, you will be banned from Meetup entirely. We will occasionally host mixers and other events that could help singles meet other singles. If you would like to meet someone nice or someone new in this group, you will need to attend our events. Please do not email or harass our members or you will be reported to Meetup and banned for good. We are targeting people in their 30's, 40's and 50's but welcome every age above 21. We would love for you to join us if you would like to attend any of these events:

We are an event based group so we require every member to attend at least one event each calendar year. We will take attendance at some events and remove any members who have RSVP'd and who do not show up three or more times. It is important for our membership to know that just signing up for this group or sending an RSVP is not the way to have fun and meet others, which is our primary purpose. Additionally if we try to reserve space for a certain amount of people and less than half of them actually show, we can loose our ability to schedule the event or venue again. By requiring attendance to one event each year and promoting the purchase of a membership card by our members, we will have higher turnouts for our events than other groups, allowing for more events and a larger variety of events. We are only letting 1,000 members purchase membership cards each year, so please purchase your 5280 Singles Membership card soon, before we run out. Also make sure you do attend at least one event per year so you can stay in the group.

20. The membership cost is less than one Uber/Lyft ride or one tank of gas and will deliver well more than your initial investment in savings each year.

We request that you don't email members that you have not gotten to know in person, as this is not a dating site. Members who do this should be reported to Meetup and to the organizer so they can be removed from the group or Meetup.com entirely. We do encourage you to attend one of our next events and you can even bring a friend or two if there is room..
