RIDGE MISSION: RIDGE is my initiative to connect and unify Indian community/meetups in Reno, Sparks and Tahoe area by providing common platform for socializing, recreation and entertainment; to promote Indian culture; values; promote new friendships and relationships through social events in safe environment.
RIDGE MEMBERSHIP: Membership to RIDGE is open to people of Indian origin and their families, other cultures and communities are welcomed to join RIDGE too. There is no age, religion or language restrictions.
EVENT GUIDELINE: Anyone can host events in RIDGE. If you would like to host event, let me know, I'll make you an event organizer. Event host takes complete responsibility of planning, organizing and hosting their events. Hosts can reach out to other members to co-host or help. Events must be posted at least one week in advance, so members get a chance to RSVP. No impromptu events please.
If you have event ideas, please post it on Meetup. It is extremely difficult for me to come up with events and host all the time.
RSVP ETIQUETTE: RSVP only if you plan to attend and see it as a social commitment. Event hosts put in lot efforts to host and organize events. Keep your RSVP current always. If you cannot attend an event, please unRSVP at least 24 hours before the event BEHAVIORAL EXPECTATIONS: RIDGE is a family. Respect each other at all times. Integrity and loyalty to the group expected from everyone. If kids are attending events, be a role model for the kids. Dress decently always, and be nice to one another. PHOTO POLICY: Please respect privacy of group members. If someone does not want to be in the pictures, do not take pictures.
Photographs from RIDGE members may not to publish on Facebook, Meetup or social media without consent of members in the photographs. If a member wants any of the photographs removed, please contact me or event host and the photograph will be removed immediately
DATING & RELATIONSHIPS: RIDGE is not against dating and searching for your soul mate. In fact, it is one of RIDGE goals that like-minded people meet in events, get to know each other, become friends and so on. RIDGE is a local group, so it gives you opportunity to meet new people in group setting, and become friends, hopefully leading to healthy relationship. I hold all members to higher standard of morals and ethics. COMPLAINTS: If you have any complaints about an event, please have it addressed by the event host first, then talk to me. I'll hear both sides and do my best to resolve it.
