* What are we about? This meetup is for all folks who are looking to continue the great events and adventures that started under the aegis of the (now defunct) Portland Open 20's and 30's group. We intend to carry forward the culture and atmosphere of that group, whose purpose was (and still is!) to connect younger people in Portland, OR who are in an open relationship or who are interested in adopting an open relationship style.
* Who should join? We welcome anyone who identifies as ethically non-monogamous, or is curious about this identification and lifestyle. We are currently limiting membership in this group to those over 21 and under 50 (an expansion of the range of the original Open 20's and 30's group because hey, we've gotten older too) but anyone is allowed to attend if they have a partner who is a member of the group. Single polyfolk and folks who are presently in a closed relationship are also welcome.
* Why should you join? We'd like our folks to learn, share, and have fun. Join us for socializing, discussion, games and generally getting up to wacky hijinks in downtown Portland. Help find and build your community through shared interests and events, and see what the Poly community in Portland has to offer.
* What can members expect? We plan on hosting many of the same types of events that were held by Open 20s and 30s as well as trying some new things. You can expect to see Karaoke, Hiking, Game nights, and other classics. We are also looking into options for Movie nights, Video/Computer Game parties, BBQs/Picnics, other sports (rock climbing, bouldering, biking), potential discussion groups, and more. If you'd like to try hosting an event, reach out to Kristin or Mike and we'll see what we can set up!
