What we're about
This group is open to all adults Ages 21 and over, single and married, who love meeting new people, building friendships, laughing, playing, and going on adventures. Some of the many activities we have enjoyed since our inception in September 2015 include party-game nights, bowling, hiking, canoeing, art classes, retro movie nights, stand-up comedy shows, plantation tours, laser tag, music shows, and much more! All kind, good people are welcomed and encouraged to join in the fun!
NOTE: If you are among the many people who tend to feel shy and uncomfy showing up alone, you are always welcomed to bring a friend (or two or three). However, if you cannot find a friend available or game for a particular event you're interested in attending, I encourage you to be brave and show up, anyway. I promise to make a consistent effort to communicate exactly where or how to find us when you get there, and you will be warmly, joyfully welcomed and quickly introduced to others so you will feel comfy and so glad you came. ;)
A PS RE EVENT PHOTOS: The Group Album/photo feature on Meetup is not currently one that I am comfortable using as a means of sharing event photographs. If you'd like to take photos during our Meetup events for your personal use or to share via phone or email with friends, please feel free to do so. I have been told that the Meetup team is currently working on some changes to the Group Album/photo feature, and we can reevaluate when that work is complete. In the meantime, thanks so much for your cooperation and patience in this matter.
NO-SHOW POLICY: A "no-show" is a member who RSVPs for an event, never changes their RSVP to "Not Going," and does not attend the event. No-shows wreak havoc on Meetup events and are likely the greatest source of discouragement, stress, and frustration among Organizers. Additionally, no-shows negatively impact events for those who do attend. I have a very "inclusive" attitude and want each of you to be a part of this special group. However, with the privilege of being a member of this group comes responsibility. Members are required to respectfully handle Meetup's RSVP system. (I will always send an event reminder prior to each event; it is up to you to properly establish and maintain Meetup settings that allow you to receive event messages in a timely manner.) Because we are all human and can be responsible and still, on rare occasion, slip up or have life throw a crazy ball our way, the PLAY BATON ROUGE No-Show Policy allows two no-show "oopsies" during the course of your membership in this group. If you choose to allow yourself a third no-show, you are choosing to be eliminated from the group. I would love this to never happen, but I want to make sure we respect the establishments we frequent with proper headcounts, and I want Meetups to be very positive experiences for those who participate. I appreciate your understanding and cooperation in this matter.
