Bay Area Social (BAS) 40+ is a group for active people looking to expand their circle of friends and have fun along the way!
We understand that sometimes meeting new people can be nerve-wracking but will do everything we can to make you feel welcome and be a part of BAS 40+. Additionally we will do our best to organize events where the ratio of men and women is equal.
This group is not about numbers or how many people are in it ; it's rather having fun doing activities we enjoy together.
