Yosemite is that amazing place you want to go but have not yet. You have heard it's amazing but you did not want to go on your own and none of your friends were willing to join you or be adventurous. & you have not been able to get out for a while too! & you want to get out and be safe! Camping is a very safe activity as we are outdoors and with distance & you have always want to try camping!!! This event is perfect for the First Timer or Beginner camper or you have been and can't wait to go again For this and many other reasons: This is the event for you!! Of course Yosemite is a massive place and there is always More To Explore. Yosemite is an entirely different park in each season. We are heading there for Fall. The Fall Colors will be in full force. Totally different from Spring, Summer or Winter. This is Fri, Sat, Sun nights and depart Mon. OR you can do a Fri and Sat, depart on Sun if you wish. Sat AM we will assemble and break into groups of where to go, and what to do. There will be Easy, Medium and Hard options. The Easy folks will be doing all the best spots. The Medium will do some medium hikes. The Hard folks will have several more challenging hikes to choose from and head out. Let's do some orienteering to get you a lay of the land. Yosemite is GIANT. For lack of a better breakdown . . it is 4 distinct areas, and you can easily spend a day doing each. *Yosemite Valley *Tolumne Meadows/Tenaya Lake/Tioga Pass *Glacier Point Road *Southern Yosemite/Wawona/Giant Redwoods What you miss doing one day . . . you have the next days. There is no need for FOMO. This event is meant to be more like a buffet where we lay out options so you do more of what you wish in the order and way that works best for you. What kind of camping is this? Answer: This is Tent Camping. Cars will be parked steps away outside our site. Our site has flush toilets, free showers and outdoor wash-stations. There are grills, if you don't want to use your stove, and to cook over wood. It is a mix of shade and open area. Plenty of fire-pits we can divide among several to keep distance. The site has an outdoor heated pool we can use, as well as a convenience store with anything you forgot. As far as campsite it's much nicer than most. Hey . . . what about the Apocalypse? Will we be safe? We will have full Covid precautions in place. The general idea is to break all areas of transmission. We have an ENTIRE large and private site where we will be able to maintain distance as needed. Masks and coverings as needed. Outdoor wash station. Food handling and food storage protocols. All safety requirements by the state and local will be in place. We will cut in half our total size and thus have half as many people as pre-pandemic in our large space. Don't delay. Don't wait.

While nothing is 100% safe, experts all agree that face-to-face socializing is safest when four precautions are taken: 1. Outdoors. A study of 6,000 Covid-19 positive people in China revealed that only one of the 6,000 is believed to have contracted the virus outdoors! 2. Masked. We provide free masks and require they be worn in order to be admitted to our speed dating parties. 3. Social distancing. Tables are spaced apart. 4. Limited Exposure. With speed dating you only interact with the same person for 5 minutes. Saturday, October 17, 2020. 3:00-5:00pm – Advanced Degrees Speed Dating, ages 35-55 5:00-7:00pm – Young Single Professionals Speed Dating, ages 30-45 7:00-9:00pm –Single Professionals Speed Dating, ages 45-60 LOCATION: Off the Rails Brewing Co., 111 S Murphy Avenue, Sunnyvale CA. Our party is on the lovely and spacious back patio, with social distancing. Free parking! TICKETS: $25/Advance or $30/Door (If space permits), per session. We recommend you prepay on www.thepartyhotline.com, as some sections are likely to sell out. We especially need men 45-60. That age group always sells out early for women (women please DON’T sign up for the men’s section, as that destroys the male-female balance!) Food and drink available at additional cost. PLEASE NOTE: We don’t have a 60+ section because unfortunately most men over 60 will not speed date with women their own age. A sad fact of life, nothing we can do about it.
