Welcome to Fit Fun and Friendly Olympians. This Meetup group is for people that enjoy exploring the Pacific Northwest through hiking, walking, and other outdoor-related fitness activities. Our Meetup events are usually scheduled in or near the Olympia area, typically last 2-4 hours, and are usually held on Saturday or Sunday mornings, rain or shine. In addition to hikes and walks that vary in difficulty, our group may post events such as cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, trail running, and a variety of social activities that have a focus on health and fitness. The events are occasionally followed up with a lunch or coffee. We are not fitness instructors, personal trainers or nutritionists. However, we are a diverse group of people who believe that getting fit, or staying fit, and living a healthy lifestyle is more fun with health conscious, like-minded friends.
This Meetup is jointly managed by a group of three volunteer co-organizers.
Dues: The dues for this meetup are $5 per year. The dues currently go towards the cost of the meetup up platform which is currently $106.76 every six months and sometimes in the past (hopefully again after COVID-19) things like annual events or picnics. After a 14 day trial period, if you wish to remain a member of the group, please pay your dues. Our membership roles are occasionally purged of folks that do not pay dues to protect the privacy of other members. If you opt to leave the group rather than pay dues because you are not interested in participating in the events right now, you can rejoin in the future.
Punctuality and No-Show Policy: We recognize that life happens and people are sometimes late as a result. We like to start on time and we ask that you try to be 5 minutes early so that we can leave on time. If you RSVP and do not show we may worry about you. If your plans at the last minute change and you opt to not attend the Meetup, please contact the event organizer to let them know.
