What we're about

Hello and welcome new friends and old friends!

We are a group of friendly South Sounders who are looking to expand our circle of friends while going to new places and exploring events in the area. If you are new in town and would like to meet some of your new neighbors for the first time, or your life is too much work and no play, even if you have lived here your whole life and would like to meet more people, then why not give us a try. If you have an interest in bowling, movies, dining out, game nights, meeting new people and making new friends in the area, then this group is for you.

This club is a collaborative, volunteer driven project, and we welcome new organizers, once we’ve gotten to know you, oriented more along the lines of inviting friends to do fun things like bowling and movies rather than a dating site. Repeat this is not a dating site.

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.
