What we're about

Hello and welcome new friends and old friends!
We are a group of friendly South Sounder,  who are looking to expand our circle of friends. 

Are you new to the area? Would you like to expand your circle of friends? Is your life full or too much work and little play? Has Covid-19 got you down and looking for ways to connect and stay active?
Then we are the group for you! Even if you have lived here your whole life and would like to meet more people, then why not give us a try. This club is a collaborative, volunteer driven project. We like many activities such as hiking, walking, bird watching, cycling, movie watching, reading books, cooking and sharing meals, dancing, bowling, and many other things.

If you’ve ever thought to yourself “I’d love to see that new movie but don’t want to go alone,” "I want to try this activity but don't know anyone," "I want to hike, bike, or ...., you fill in the blank, than this is a good place to post the event and see who else is just dying to see that very movie or try that activity. We'd love to get you out on the trails, out to the movies, welcome to our group.

Our sister organization is the Olympia Hiking and Outdoor Recreation Group, if you’re interested in hiking, snowshoeing, bicycling, camping, or other adventures, be sure to stop by and check us out.
