What we're about

CLOSED to new members as of 9/12/20 due to COVID-19. ASG will welcome new members post COVID-19. Thanks for your understanding.

We are a fun and friendly group in the far northwest suburbs! We do a variety of activities and are always open to suggestions. Let's get together for activities in our area to include happy hours, karaoke, live music, wine/beer tastings, paint and sip parties, hiking, kayaking, bar bingo, dining, movies, festivals and more! Most members are 40-50 something years young, but all are welcome! Come join us for our next event!

This group will be kept small and active, with more intimate events so often the number of attendees is limited, depending upon the event and whether or not a reservation needs to be made with the establishment - so there are a few rules as follow.

Group rules:

-no party crashing; showing up to an event with no RSVP or while still on a waitlist (it’s not fair to others left on a waitlist who can’t/don’t attend). Also, it might make other members feel uneasy by you showing up unexpectedly due to not being on the list of attendees. Even if you sit by yourself or with others you might bring with you, why would you want to be the elephant(s) in the room? Cliques from other groups are unwelcome...we aren’t in high school anymore. Lastly, there likely will not be seat(s) for you, depending upon the event.

-in keeping with the focus to keep the group small and active, please attend events at least every month or two or you will be removed for lack of attendance

-keep your RSVPs current or you will be flagged as a no show; too many no shows and you’re out (it’s not fair to those left on a waitlist and unable to attend, and leaves an empty seat at the table).

-be kind and considerate to others in the group and at the places we go; come to me with any issues that might need addressed.

Please Note: We have no self serving interests and will never make you pay a fee to attend our events. Our focus is to create opportunities to socialize, meet people and have fun! While there will never be a meetup fee at any event, donations will be accepted and appreciated! Once the organizer’s monthly meetup fee is recouped, the remainder, if any, will be donated to the Fish Food Pantry. Thank you in advance for your generosity and support!

Disclaimers:

Algonquin Social Group is not a dating group. Although we are happy when two people meet and connect for something meaningful, please be respectful. Those making unwelcome advances, or otherwise making another member feel uncomfortable, might be asked to adjust their behavior, or leave the group.

We want every ASG member, male and female, to feel comfortable getting together for an enjoyable time.

We also ask that you please drink responsibly and arrange for transportation if you enjoy yourself a little more than you intended.

Be advised, we reserve the right to dismiss any individual that we feel may cause harm, disruption and/or general discomfort to other members.

Indemnification, Release and Hold Harmless. By requesting to join this group and participating in its activities, you agree to release, indemnify and hold harmless the organizer, any co-organizer and/or any event host from any and all liability in connection with any injury or damage incurred by you, including any of your guests and invitees, at any of the group’s events and you hereby release the organizer, co-organizers and event hosts from any and all liability whatsoever.

Finally, by joining the group and attending its events, you acknowledge and agree that group photos are often taken and give permission to post photos in which you might appear (I try not to post any photos which might be unflattering :).

All that aside, let’s have tons of fun and make some great memories!
