What we're about

Hiking, Camping, Outdoors, Sports, Music, Volunteering for Good Causes, Food ! An all-inclusive platonic and fraternal group for easy-going guys of all walks of life. Honorable and noteworthy we are here to have Fun, enjoy life, Exercise, make friends & build community. Feel free to join and add your own ideas. Understanding there is usually some degree of controlled opposition, don't let that stop you from having fun. I believe many activities in this group have and will evolve more on an individual basis - it's just the way it is making friends. In the meantime - if I can keep this group rolling for a bit - it would be great meeting all of you. Creating good health with nature and good people transforms the ego's frailties and fears organically and literally from the ground up. From food to hockey and camping, we try to do things right. Beginning locally, easy and working toward ego-free, in the ascension of an exciting and more challenging group for fun and meeting new people. No false drama. We are here to learn and manifest peace and love for each other and our families, friends and community. Anything contrary is a mythical error. We create wisely, and from the heart with all that is good around us and we remember to offer something good in return where we can.

Future trips include The Swiss Alps, The White Mountains, Joanne Shenandoah "Peacemaker's Journey", Shenandoah National Park, The Redwood National Forest and Yosemite! Currently, and in reality, most events posted are local and attainable for all of New England, physically ecological with the goal of socializing, having fun, and moving. The human body is designed to move, so let's go! Humans are social creatures and science has proven that social connecting optimizes health and happiness. Either or is good and both is excellent. Additionally the group is here to facilitate meeting new people, build community, volunteer for good causes if desired, as well as to help and support each other(within manly reason, intelligence, spirit, strength, and humor). This group is open to all adult men of every background and ability where all are valued, equal in spirit, and never diminished. Whether or not you can attain a hike or activity, at the very least you will make a social connection with a good tribe or try out new outfits and uniforms. No capes. (joke). Who was Edna Mode?

legal stuff :

By Joining the group and/or RSVPing "yes" to one or more of our events, members of the New England Men's League Meetup Group and their guests agree to release, hold harmless, and indemnify the event organizer(s) and all members participating in the event from any and all legal claims for property damage, injury, and/or death while attending event. In consideration for accepting this entry, I, the registrant, intending to be legally bound, hereby for myself, my heirs, my executors and administrators, do waive and release any and all rights for damages I may have against any parties or persons connected with the New England Men's League Meetup Group for and related to any event which I attend. I attest and verify that I (and any guest(s) I bring) are able to participate, and that I assume all risks associated with the events I or my guest(s) voluntarily attend. I grant the New England Men's League Meetup Group permission to use any and all photographs, film, or videos of all events for any purpose. As always, be safe and have fun!

For good practice, for courtesy, and, toward the 100th monkey effect:

No group pressure for photographs (individual or group).

Permission, granted by the subject of photography, to photograph or video him is a good idea.

No photograph required.

For the well-being of myself and the group:

I retain the right to remove any membership(friends verify our loyalty to good and non-troublesome people) or event attendance for any reason especially misappropriated behavior (none of which diminishes your humanity - flawed as we may be - it may merely disqualify one from the group - so behave and have fun).
