Thank you for checking us out and just maybe joining our group - Anything But Couches.
*Anything But Couches (ABC's) started in December 2015.
The primary goal is to bring you a wide variety of events. Something everyone can enjoy. We welcome everyone!
We will be planning events to have fun, to stay active, to get people out of their homes, off their couches, to try some new/old activities, to meet new people and maybe meet some new friends along the way.
This group will be open to everyone (single and/or couples) over the age of 18 *Note: some events may be available where youths may attend (with a supervised adult) and this will be posted well in advance. There may also be events listed for Singles- please respect this tag and only plan to attend such events if you are single.
For safety reasons and to help the organizers recognize members at an event, every member should have a clear picture of themselves for their profile. At the discretion of the individual hosts, if you do not have a clear photo of yourself you may not be allowed to attend an event [and note that this decision may vary between hosts]. So the easiest thing to do is to have a CLEAR PHOTO of yourself =) TY
In a similar vein, this is not a dating list, so please refrain from messaging anyone unless you have met them at an event. If you do receive such messages, let me know so I can deal with it.
Please only post comments that pertain to an event and that are needed. For example - If the event is a week away and you are taking your cat to the vet, having to work... members do not need to hear about it. Please understand, if you post the comment, the members attending get an updated email on this comment.
Your profile must have your first name and (to make it easier for the organizers) your last initial. For safety/privacy reasons, we strongly suggest that you do not use your full name on any of your profile meetups.
The ABC events will depend on the interest of the group, the number of organizers, the members’ involvement... If there are events that are popular, we will keep posting them. If you have some ideas on new events, tell us!
At each event, members are responsible for paying their costs/tab/fees… Some events may require pre-payment and it will be clearly posted.
Each event will have a minimum amount of time to change your RSVP to a no, if you cannot make it to the event. We understand that things come up in life and at the same time, we need to be respectful of others members who would like to attend (with more than a little notice), that organizers need to keep the event venues updated, that costs for an event may change (with the number of members attending)... It is up to each member to communicate to the organizers. If we see "no shows" chances are we will assume it is lack of respect for the organizers and members in the group and you run the risk of being removed from the Group.
Note: If a member does not change their RSVP within the posted minimum timeline, the organizer (for that event) will make the decision to mark you as a "No Show". For members that have over "3 No Shows" the organizers will have the option to remove you from that meetup or change your name to the waitlist and only to be allowed to attend if space comes available on the day of the event.
By joining your name to the ABC’s meetups (Anything but Couches) and MEETUP are not and will not be held responsible for any loss or damages, which you may occur from *your activities at an event. Members understand and agree to join at their own risk (*including other people that you may bring with you to an event).
