Friends & Singles Out and About NW Burbs


It's hard for people to meet people outside of work. Especially those who do not deal with many people at work. It's also more fun to go out when you know you're likely to actually meet people that have similar interests!

So once month, we meet at Fox & Hound Pub & Grille in Schaumburg, near Golf and Roselle Road. Besides that, the assistant organizers create meetups throughout the month. We make road trips, we try out new bars, bowling alleys, restaurants, festivals, etc. There are always tons of things to do! It is rare we do CHICAGO events.

You will fit in this group if you are between the ages of 25-50 years old and are: newly divorced, grew apart from friends, new in the area, or just expanding your group of friends. Also, this is NOT a STRICTLY SINGLES group! If a guy or gal comes along who catches your eye, great, but mind your manners. Make a pest of yourself and you'll be asked to leave.



*** POLICIES ***

# 1 - MEMBER PHOTO - A clear picture of your pretty face is required to be in this group. We don't want people joining the group to cheat on their spouses and having to hide the fact they are here. Don't ask, there is no way around this.

# 2 - HARASSMENT - If people message me that you are willing to massage them or you are bothering other people in the group, you are out. No questions asked.

# 3 - RSVPs - Events are often arranged based on the number of "Yes" RSVPs, with promises made to our hosts and special deals worked out in advance. No-shows make us look bad and can cost us money. While I realize plans can change at the last minute, we plan on all "Yes" RSVPs on showing up. Please be considerate of your fellow friends and organizers. Please also remember that we do have a 3-Strike No-Show policy.

# 4 - ACTIVE MEMBERS - Inactive members may be removed at the discretion of the organizers.

# 5 - YOUR PART - This is a social group. While you will be welcomed and introduced to many people, but it will be up to you to develop friendships. My job is to gather all of you to one place; you mingle, have fun and get to know the others.

# 6 - MASS EMAILS - Due to some past abuse, mass emails have been disabled from this group. This may be changed in the future.

# 7 - EVENT CLONING -

Purpose
The purpose of this rule is to protect the integrity and chance of success of the original event. It is also intended reduce confusion of the members who are members of multiple groups.

Scope
The rule applies to all members of Friends & Singles - NW 'Burbs who are Organizers or Assistant Organizers of other groups or organizations.

Rule
Once an event is posted on Friends & Singles - NW 'Burbs ("F&S"), it should not be copied and posted on another website (including Meetup site) or other media within 7 days before or after the originally-posted event without the permission of the Organizer of F&S. This activity shall be referred to as “Event Cloning.” Conversely, the Assistant Organizer of F&S would not be permitted to “knowingly” clone an event of another group.

The “cloned” (copied) event can’t be on the same day and the same venue at the same time even if the name and other details are different.

Example
If someone posts an event at "Dave’s Restaurant" on F&S, it would not be permissible for a member to post an event at same place and the same time.

Some Reasons Why
1. Members of F&S could be confused as to which event they are signing up for and who the organizer is. This may result in people RSVP’ing for the wrong event or both events (resulting in a “no show” for one or both). It could result in people not being able to find the group and/or the organizer (again resulting in more “no shows”).
2. The competition for the same pool of people may cause the organizer not to make their “minimum” as agreed to with Dave’s, because the attendance is split. This could result in the Organizer losing money.
3. Dave’s may not have the seating to accommodate both groups.
4. Dave’s may not have enough cooks or wait staff to handle both groups. Service would be slower and both events suffer.

Exception
If it is deemed that the venue can handle both groups easily, it is OK with the original posting organizer and it is very clear to the membership that there are 2 different events and who the organizers are.

The “cloned” (copied) event with the same name and basic details cannot be posted within 7 days before or after the original event.

Example:
If someone posts a Massage Party on Jan 1, 2010, it would not be permissible for a member to post another “Massage Party” on Jan 2, 2010 at the same venue.

Some Reasons Why
1. Members of F&S could be confused as to which event they are signing up for and who the organizer is. This may result in people RSVP’ing for the wrong event or both events (resulting in a “no show” for one or both). It could result in people not being able to find the group and/or the organizer (again resulting in more “no shows”).
2. The competition for the same pool of people may cause the organizer not to make their “minimum” as agreed to with the massage parlor, because the attendance is split. This could result in the Organizer losing money.

Consequences
Violating member can be removed and/or banned from the group (at the discretion of the Organizer).

# 8 - FEES - Lastly, this group was created to help single people in the NW suburbs make friends and find fun things to do. This is not a for-profit endeavor. Meetup fees will be kept to the minimum ($1) and collected periodically only as necessary to recoup the cost meetup.com charges me.
