What we're about

Public Group

Singapore Outdoor Seekers (SOS in short) is a reborn meet-up site founded by Kevin Soh who then roped in Collin Ng to be his co-organiser. Why the abbreviation, SOS? It is not a call for help or anything like that; it is to make easy for people to remember us when they wish to participate in any event on our meet-up site. Member who signs up with us will be called ‘SOSer’.

SOS meet-up has never intended to compete with other meet up sites but it aims to provide more options to all members; to grow the pool; to know new friends and to network among each other.

SOS meet-up is not all about adventure outings, it can be any event of varied interests, be it indoor or outdoor type that people can gather together, share common interest and for some, they might become buddies.

Kevin and Collin are active members on other meet-up sites and sometimes, they host some events too. They will continue to actively participate and/or host events on other meet up sites.

We do not restrict anyone from signing up with us but we expect members to exercise discretion when posting sensitive comments on the public forum. We are just one big community and respect must be accorded to one and other, regardless of race or religion. We welcome Singaporeans, Singapore Permanent Residents & Working Resident and even tourists visiting our little red dot to participate in our events.

All said, we are easy people and we gladly welcome any member who is keen to host any event on our site. Just let us know for we are just an email away.

We hope to host many good and fun-filled events in the coming days – please stay tuned.
