What we're about

The Florence Adventure Club is not for profit and is focused on fun socializing while pursuing outdoor, indoor, and travel adventures. Membership is primarily for those living within an hours drive of Florence Oregon; circle including Newport, Eugene, and NorthBend/CoosBay. By joining FAC, you agree to abide by the policies voiced in the {click here (https://www.meetup.com/Florence-Oregon-Outdoor-Indoor-Travel-Adventure-Club/about/)} question and answer section.

Please keep in mind that events happen in these groups only when members offer to setup/offer/lead them. If you are going for a hike then just write it up to share it with others. If driving to a festival in Eugene, write it up to share and have a car pooled trip. If going kayaking, write it up to enjoy company on the paddle. Want some left overs, write up a potluck party where all you need is to offer your home and perhaps a theme. Typically only 6-12 show up to events even with groups numbering a thousand; exception are the potluck parties.

Those looking to create a "hiking only", "games only", "friends only", "coastal only", "tennis only", "museum only", "dining out only", etc. "only" group are encouraged to join this general group since we are inclusionary. Members living in the greater Florence area are quickly made into "Event Organizers" with virtually all the control that a "Group Organizer" has while skipping the MeetUp fees and site management hassles. I see so many groups set up, run for a year, and then die off due to the exclusionary "creator" becoming disillusioned anor burned out. How embarrassing when as an "Event Organizer" you could have just stopped setting up "___ only" events while continuing to enjoy all the other event offerings. I have been doing these groups for decades and know what to expect, what works long term, and the costs related. And this group is open source to suggestions to make it better for the membership.
