Things we regularly schedule: hiking, pub crawls, dancing, dining out, beach activities, picnics, pizza parties, pool parties, costume parties, beer & wine tasting, karaoke, golf, sailing cruises, party bus, just to name a few.
Members can be of any age although many of our members are between 30-60. A clear photo is required to join. Our new member committee reviews every request to vett fake profiles.
We have a 60 day free trial period. After that Membership dues only $5/yr per person. This money is to cover expenses I pay to meetup.com in order to have a group, buy supplies & subsidize event costs. Sure there are free groups out there, but many dissolve when it's time to pay the annual dues, or the events are poorly organized with low attendance. Take a look--our events are popular, diverse, and fun.
If you have trouble re-joining after your free trial expires, try logging in from a computer or the desktop version vs phone app. I recommend paying before the trial expires as some people had issues with the payment software or want to use cash. I cannot "add" you on after trial expires. It's not like Facebook. The request must come from the member. Message me if any questions
The focus of I.G.A. is for socializing and activities, not primarily dating. If you do choose to date that's cool, just keep drama out of the club. Promotion of business is strictly prohibited. We also ask to please abstain from discussing politics or religion. We have a zero tolerance policy for harassment or drama of any kind.
ATTENDANCE: We take roll at each event. If you can't go please simply change your reservation to NO. No explanation is needed. Please avoid being a no-show. We like to start our functions on time. For our hikes we will wait 5 minutes after the designated start time. When signing up for events please read the entire description for specific instructions.
