Welcome to Birmingham and Beyond!! If you want to meet new people and socialize this is absolutely the right group! We are based out for Birmingham but you do NOT have to live in BIrmingham to be part of this group or to be called a "Birmie"! While we enjoy and most our activites are located in or near Birmingham, we are open to new ideas of venturing out of the area if the membership wants to try new venues or ideas! At this time we do many Happy Hours, Dinners, and will make an attempt at theatrical outings.
As with any group we have come to note the following issues need to be adhered over the last 6 years so we can continue to have a healthy and respectful group of folks:
We require a current photo of yourself so we can recognize and authenticate you at events. Do not post yourself with a group since we need to know who you are. Do not post pictures of your pet (alone), a flower or other object. We need to see you!
We are open to all ages and marital status however most of our members are over 45. All you have to do is have a smile, and show an interest in getting to know new people.
This group is not available to those who want to promote their business interests..... Do not use this membership as a way to send invitations for private business concerns or as a free dating site. There are other meetups for that purpose.
All events require the attendees see the host to account for their attendance. After 3 "no shows" the member will no longer be allowed to remain in this group. A last minute cancellation counts as a no show; however, if there is an emergency you still have 2 more no shows so don't worry. This is a to respect the host business, the other members on the wait list, and myself for the time and effort put into creating these venues. It is your responsibility to make sure your attendance is recorded.
Last but not least, you MUST be of sound mind and physical ability to attend a function. We are not equipped or designed to care for those who cannot fully participate appropriately in the posted meetups. Be aware before becoming involved since you are expected to care for yourself appropriately.
