What we're about

Hello! Started in August, 2011 I/we decided to form this for people who enjoy Lake Minnetonka. While only about 10% of us live on or anywhere near “The Lake” (as we like to call it), our members are people who like to sometimes 'play' here. Our members host and attend events and make friends here. Some of our events are even posted 'last minute'. The age range is over 40 years old but 85 % of us are over 50 years old.

Our Meetups only happen because the members, and sometimes Edward D the Organizer, decide to host an event. We will sometimes meetup somewhere on or near Lake Minnetonka and nearby communities. Some of our events will, of course, be held elsewhere.

Some of our Meetup events are likely to be happy hour events, dinners, and other similar things. Events will occur at places where we can gather to “Meetup”. We welcome ideas and suggestions from our members for Meetups. We need you, our members to volunteer to host (or co-host) an event whenever you can, and of course to attend wherever possible.

As is the case elsewhere on Meetup we are trying to connect people and to provide a variety of FUN activities, outings, events, etc. It is towards that purpose we are formed and dedicated.

Below is a partial list of some of our activities and reasons people like Meetup and this group, too.

Make new friends/Meet new people/Meetup!!

ANYTHING related to being on or near “The Lake” (as we like to call it)

Boating / Canoeing / Kayaking

Walking, hiking, etc

Happy Hours, dining out

House based Potlucks and BBQ Themed Parties

Music, Dancing, and nightclubs

Bicycling / Biking

Volunteering (e.g. Feed My Starving Children, Meals on Wheels, etc)

All of our members are also members of other Meetup Groups. I hope you will explore them as well. (Ask the Organizer of this group how to easily find more Meetup groups to join. It is easy to search Meetup for your favorite activities, interests, affinities, etc.) PS If you do not join more Meetup groups you will not find the MANY calendars of events and activities that you would like to do. Event details are sometimes known only to members so by joining more group you will have more options on any given day.

In this group while you may simply “belong” here, and come as frequently (or seldom) as you want, "belonging" is not much fun. We hope that you will not only attend an event when you want but that you MIGHT also help plan and organize or co-host a Meetup event.

Respectfully,

Edward D.
