What we're about

Ok, now the kids are older or out of the house and you're ready for the next great stage of your life. Want to meet others similar to yourself? Live in the area of NYC or Long Island? Then this group is for you.

Welcome to the "Greater NYC and Long Island Over 40 and Ready For Fun" Meetup group. This group is for all of us who want to put a big dose of fun into their lives by making new friends to share the joy of life with. It is not a "singles group" exclusively but is rather for anyone who likes to have fun which, I hope includes you!

I am trying to keep this a "Yes" only group so, if the timing of a certain event doesn't work for you or it is not something that you are interested in, we understand and we'll see you at some other event. In that case, please don't feel like you need to respond by RSVPing with a "No" but if you are planning to join us at an event, please RSVP "Yes" as early as possible to help us create some buzz about that event.

All members are invited to post events to the group and anyone who would like to become a sponsor of it is invited to do that as well for a small one time fee.

ABOUT In this crazy Coronavirus world, many of us are feeling isolated and need to socialize. We created Online trivia event to allow you to do just that, in a fun safe environment. The in person trivia events are some of our most popular and well attended meetups. Now we have developed a system where you can enjoy this event from the comfort and safety from your own home. HOW IT WORKS This completely online event will be LIVE and you will be able to see and hear the other participants while playing. In addition you get to meet and interact with other participants.

Once the round is over (about 6 questions), we will go through the answers and determine who had the highest score for the round. They will get a raffle ticket for a chance to win a prize at the end of the event. We will have multiple rounds of play and have a system to also virtually introduce you to other participants.
