We are a fun loving social group that likes to meet NEW people, do something DIFFERENT and have tons of FUN.
The best part is that this group holds interesting things for singles, couples, all age ranges,first timers, or the experienced and you can join no matter where you live (the Organizers are from Longmont but we'll be having events in Longmont and where ever there's a fun place to go.)
Our fun loving group allows and encourages all members to post events and we encourage any type of group event including but not limited to: adventure, socializing, happy hours, presentations, support groups, group projects/activities, class/workshop, business networking, day trips, overnights.
Whatever you feel like doing, you can post it for others to sign up and join you, and you'll always have people to go to events with.
Don't worry about coming to events alone -- practically everyone does. We'll make sure that you have an opportunity to meet tons of great people (our members are awesome) and make friends.
Events can be anything our members feel like hosting: Dining, Happy Hour, Dancing, House Parties, Games, Snowboarding; Skiing, Rafting, Sky Diving, Wine Tasting, Dance Classes, Paintball, Corn Mazes, Horse Back Riding, Gun Shooting, Archery, Fishing, Hiking, Ghost Busting, Skating, Rock Climbing, BINGO, Fruit Picking, Cooking and Health Classes, Fly Helicopters, Fencing, Snowboarding, Bowling, Plays, Lectures, and anything else you can think of.
Just check our CALENDAR for upcoming events and feel free to post events to our calendar by becoming an Event Host (contact Kendra to become an Event Host).
Who might be a good fit for the group? If any of the following apply to you: You like to be social and you are interested in making friends. You want to learn new things. You have a talent or knowledge you want to share with others in the group, You want to be actively involved in a group and maybe host an event or Maybe you love having fun and hanging out but hate planning stuff.
How often will you meet? We're aiming to have a packed calendar of events to give you lots of options for things to do. We will meet at least once a week. The event calendar will be dependent on how many members post events.
Why did you start the Meetup Group? We started the Meetup Group because we want to be a part of a supportive and fun social community. We also seek an infinite range of possible events instead of being confined to a small niche interest.
What sort of goals or aspirations do you have for the group? Our goal is increased happiness, fun, meaningful friendship and a sense of community and support.
What do you expect of the members? We prefer members to participate in the events and activities at least on a monthly basis and to post events they want to host. We hope that all members will host an event and spread the word about the Meetup to their friends and family. The more the merrier!
Photos We do require that each member have a profile photo that is a close up of your face only (no one else in the photo) so that our event organizers will recognize you and for safety purposes. Meetup Fees Our annual fees cost $180/yr. so we gladly accept donations from members to help us break even and to contribute to our party fund which helps defray the costs of the parties. It is preferable to donate cash instead of the Chip In button because Meetup.com takes 7%.
*Attendance Courtesy: If you want to attend an event, please RSVP "Yes" on the event page. If you have to cancel, please update your RSVP on the upper right corner of event page by clicking the green "Change" button to "No" as soon as possible.
Out of consideration of our hosts and venues, please try to refrain from canceling out of an event with less than 24 hours notice -- if you are canceling less than 2 hours notice, please call/text/message an event host in addition to changing your RSVP.
A "No-Show" means not showing up to an event while your RSVP says "Yes." (Canceling with less than 2 hours notice can also be considered a "No-Show" especially if there's a waiting list or reservations at the venue). After 2 no-shows, we ask for a $5 donation to remain in the group.
Thank you for becoming a part of our friendly Longmont Social Meetup Family and we all looking forward to meeting you soon!
Sincerely, Kendra Pearsall, Organizer and the LSM Organizational Team and our wonderful Members
