What we're about
Hi, I'm Jon, welcome to YOWsers.
First, the name. If you have ever flown in or out of Ottawa, you will know that YOW is the international airport code for Ottawa. For those who have spent a long time in Ottawa, landing at YOW has a feeling of coming home. For those of us who are new to Ottawa, YOW denotes someplace a little bit foreign but full of possibilities and new adventures. YOWsers aspires to capture both of these feelings in our activities - a bit of the familiar and a bit of the unfamiliar.
Second, I am not what you would call a reluctant meetup host, but I had never planned on hosting a group either. But when I saw that this one was languishing and about to close down, and there didn't seem to be anyone interested in taking over, I rather spontaneously thought "what the hell" and signed up to be the group organizer. So I am learning too! And while my natural inclination is to organize events that interest me, it's really about the community and so I am expanding my horizons and trying to have events that interest other YOWsers as well.
At the end of the day, this is your group, so we welcome all suggestions for activities and venues, and we encourage people from all backgrounds to join. We will do our best to make this an amazing group!
What this meetup is about ?
We are a diverse meetup group providing activities for Ottawa singles (male and female) over 35 to meet other singles for dating, friendship or to maybe even find someone special. Either way, let's have some fun along the way!
