We're new to the area and looking forward to meeting people who share some of our interests and favorite activities. We use the word "geek" as shorthand for people who have interests that tend towards science fiction, fantasy, games, movies, technology, maker culture, anime, and so on. But most importantly, we are looking for people who are accepting, open, curious, friendly, and excited about enjoying common interests with others.
We are co-founders and former organizers of the Geek Club--Peninsula Chapter, recently transplanted here in lovely Santa Cruz and hoping that we can create a community as fun and friendly as our last. This time though we're also hoping to create a group that is all-ages, with events designated as either adults-only or family-friendly. We have two kids who would love to get in on some of the geek fun!
As overly busy adults, we run our groups to be casual, mellow, and low-maintenance--tending to host one or two events a month and welcoming people to post their own events. Although hosting might sound intimidating, it's really quite easy. We're always happy to help with the posting/hosting process when we can.
If this group sounds right for you, then please take a few minutes to answer our member profile questions and also make sure you include a profile photo even if it's just a photo of your cat. This helps people feel more comfortable hosting and is a great way to start getting to know other members. Please don't use Geek Club as a dating group or avenue for promoting your business. Thanks!
