Read only the bold to skim the below and get the jist of this meetup.
Doesn't it suck when the only meetups offered are expensive because someone's making money? Or completely free but without a lot of fun stuff to do?
Wouldn't it be awesome to pool your money together to do something super awesome and fun for much cheaper than can be done at a business? Resulting in the best-bang-for-your-buck, High Value meetups that are totally worth your money?
A lot of meetup groups don't allow for posting paid meetups, even if the money is only spent on the meetup itself! Which means the only meetups that are left are either:
Free and without a lot of cool stuff to do in order to keep expenses low.
Paid and cost a lot, and someone is lining their pockets.
Not anymore! Tired of paying $7 per hour per person plus tax per room at a karaoke place? Host your own, charge $5 flat towards buying those microphones! Want to host board game nights and charge a buck or two to buy the board game? Sure! So many things can be done for so much cheaper if we pool our money together!
Free meetups are welcome too of course!
For-profit events that are held at a business are also welcome as long as it's not required to purchase their product or they are providing a very high-value for the money, IE, a damn good deal.
This is the Goldilocks meetup group. Our meetups can be 100% free, and if they cost anything it will be non profit and a damn good deal!
================Instructions for posting your meetups================
Feel free to post your own hangouts even if they are on other meetup groups and websites (with permission of the host). The hangout may be free or may charge as long as the host is breaking-even on hangout costs, no profit should be made. Meetups at public venues where a purchase is option or it's still an amazing deal are also welcome.
