We are a group of single people who like to participate in outdoor activities. We go hiking, biking, kayaking and camping. When the weather cooperates, we go ice skating, sledding and cross country skiing. We aren't into "extreme" sports...we let those for other groups. We plan some indoor activities too (but FRO/IGS wasn't a catchy name). We are 45 years old or older, and lead active lifestyles. We are minimal or non drinkers and all of our activities are alcohol-free. We are looking to meet other singles with these same interests.
IF ACCEPTED INTO FROGS, I AGREE TO:
...abide by the Members Only policy and will not bring Non-Members to events. If I think someone I know would enjoy FROGS, I will encourage her/him to explore membership via the FROGS Meetup website. I accept that the group is for adult FROGS only and I will not bring 'tadpoles' to the events.
...pay my FROGS membership dues of $10 per calendar year at the first event I attend each year. (I understand that if I join near the end of the calendar year, I may have my dues prorated to the next year, at the Organizer's discretion.)
...participate in at least 4 FROGS events per calendar year, which contributes to a feeling of group cohesiveness. If circumstances arise that make this difficult to comply with, I will notify the Organizer, who can put my membership 'on hold' and may carry a portion of my membership dues over to the next year.
...provide the Organizer with ideas for events, if inclined to do so, but I will not post my own activities on the FROGS website.
...act in a safe, respectful and friendly manner while on FROGS events, and I will be especially encouraging to those who may be trying a new activity for the first time.
...avoid the use of alcohol and non-prescribed drugs while participating in FROGS events, and while traveling to and from FROGS events.
...sign a waiver at each FROGS event, which releases the Organizer of any liability should an injury or accident occur while participating in a FROGS event, or while traveling to and from the event.
Thanks for carefully considering these requests before you apply for membership in FROGS. By doing so, you have significantly increased the likelihood that the group is a 'fit' for you, and, hopefully, increases your overall satisfaction with the group.
