What we're about

Over 40, single and wanting to engage in social activities in Fredericksburg and surrounding locales? Here's a Meetup group to meet your needs! GTR's purpose is to offer events and activities that bring individuals together providing mutual support and companionship while fostering friendships, having good times and making awesome memories. Activities are quite varied from happy hours, dinners, dancing, themed parties, outdoor activities, travel and special events. There are too many to mention and we have an open door policy for future events. If it brings us together to participate in great events, then join us today and let the GOOD TIMES REIGN.

Please note this group is NOT A DATING site. Our intentions are to provide engagement with others in a social group setting.

Meetup requirements:
1) Be of the age of 40 or over.

2) Single status (divorced, widowed or widower, or separated).

3) Must attend at least one event in a three month period. Failure or inability to do so, can result in your removal from the group with an invitation to return once personal situation permits for more active involvement in social events in GTR.

4) Refrain from contacting group members through Meetup Message tool (or private messaging) without having met member at a planned event first. Events are open for input and comments in the discussion section of the event. Meetup Message can be used to communicate with host or event coordinators for detailed specifics of events/RSVP changes, etc.

5) Provide a recent head shot when applying to group. This enables others to quickly recognize you and welcome you at scheduled events.

Harry's Alehouse

Harry's Alehouse

Well, we went to Harry's in October and decided that we would like to go here for awhile. Harry's also has a steak night on Monday nights which was also very good and the price even better than Sedona's in fact. For $10 you get a steak that is a little larger than Sedona's, parmesan mashed potatoes. At Harry's the veggies and sauce (gorgonzola, chimichuri or a third one but I can't recall it at the moment) come with the dinner. Like Sedona it is required that you purchase a beverage. So we will try this for a couple months and then change to something else. Hope you can join us.

Ride for Habitat for Humanity

Greater Fredericksburg Habitat for Humanity

This will be GTRs 3rd year participating. Last year Bob and I won best and worst hand. You do not have to have a motorcycle to join. You can follow route by car and still register and do the poker draws. We can coordinate closer to date of event. The RIDE VIRGINIA Poker Run is an annual fundraiser to engage motorcycle groups as well as local bikers who want to support Habitat. This event takes participants on a motorcycle tour of Habitat projects and local landmarks. Proceeds help support local build projects. Riders drive a designated route and draw playing cards at each planned stop. At the final destination, riders play their hand of poker and a cash prize is awarded to the best AND the worst hand.
