What's this group all about? Social events for people ages 40+!
Singles group? This group is about meeting mostly single people & having fun!! Married folks MUST have that listed in your intro!! This is NOT a dating group - if you want to see someone outside of the group activities posted, please email them via their profile. PLEASE stop if asked to by the member! That will hopefully create a friendly, fun, & nonthreatening environment for all our members. Thanks a bunch!!
Cost - I am asking for a $10 ANNUAL Dues now (THAT'S ONLY 83 CENTS A MONTH). This fee is to help with the MeetUp Group Fee ($180 per yr) & expenses (approximately $85 for the Riverboat Cruise Pass/$100 for MN Zoo Membership/$100 for Smiley Face Balloons, Name Tags, Markers, Paper Goods For Parties & Decorations, etc) & is greatly appreciated! It costs me over $400 per year simply to do what I do with this group! I love doing these activities - it's definitely not free for me though!! Unfortunately, I haven't recd enough voluntary contributions (less than $100 during the last year) to pay most of these expenses. I have a 22 yr old College Student living with me & I don't believe I should be the only member financially contributing to this group. If you prefer to pay dues in cash, please just give it to me at a Fun & Friends Event - no major rush, unless you are getting emails that you will be kicked out for nonpayment of dues! Thanks for your support!!
Attendance Policy For Events - 3 Strikes You're Out!!! No Shows/Late Cancels have been a nasty problem for Event Organizers in lots of MeetUp Groups, including myself!! That said, anyone who cancels within 24 hrs of the start time of an event MUST let the Event Host/Event Organizer know why they are cancelling p late - it's simply the considerate thing to do!! No Shows will not be tolerated - it's simply rude!! I will not allow rudeness or inconsideration toward either the group members or toward any Event Organizers/Hosts!! We, of course, understand that emergencies do happen & we won't count an emergency against anyone!! As long as you notify the Event Organizer/Host it was an Emergency!! We do not possess psychic ability, at this time, & won't know what happened, if you don't let us know! Also, I'm a mom & I wonder when people don't show up - is he/she in a ditch somewhere?? I don't know & I worry!! If anyone ends up with 3 No Shows/Late Cancels, without notifying the Host/Event Organizer, you will be kicked out of the group & will not be allowed back in it!! PLEASE don't make me do that - I don't want to!!
Participate At Your Own Risk - The mgmt of this group is not responsible for anything bought or sold by anyone in this group. Any travel plans or tickets for ball games, etc that you purchase are being purchased at your own risk! Please be cautious! I've heard about incidents in other groups & hope that never happens to anyone in this group!!
I want this group to be fun for everyone, including me!! PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE & RESPECTFUL!!
Thanks a bunch & welcome to the group - let's make lots of fabulous memories!!
