I want to get together those who want to come out of their shell a bit, have fun and talk about the things they love with like-minded people, in a comfortable and safe environment.
Meetups will be mostly low key, low cost, non-alcoholic meet & greets to just get to know each other and have a nice chat (read: geek out like crazy), for example, museum/exhibition visits, board game afternoons, once the weather gets warmer walks along the Clyde or in a park, picnics, and so on. Some meetups will be for ticketed activities such as going to the zoo, concerts, exhibitions and other events of the kind. Some bigger events in the calendar so far are MCM Comic Con Glasgow on 23rd/24th September 2018, Linlithgow Jousting in July and Ignition Festival 2019 (probably August).
Now that the group is established I would also like to ask Meetup participants to contribute to the running costs (£140 a year), so going forward I would request from those who attend a Meetup to contribute £1-£2.
NO SHOW POLICY:
It is extremely inconvenient to keep waiting for someone who was never going to show up, especially if a Meetup is for a timed event. If you realise you can't make it to a Meetup that you had RSVP'd to, please change your attendance asap or let me know via private message.
I understand that something can always come up, life happened while you made other plans or you just forgot to change your RSVP - that's okay. Therefore, if you haven't arrived by the time the Meetup starts, I will message you to ask if you will still be attending and if you let me know whether to expect you later on or if/why you weren't there, all is well.
However, if I haven't received a reply from you within 7 days, you will be removed from the group.
