What we're about

The Social 50+s Meetup group caters for any number of activities for over 50's ranging from coffee, dance classes, dinner and dancing, and trivia as regular events, with the occasional, easy/moderate hike, tour or boat trip, pub lunch etc, etc. We may even plan weekends away or cruises. The sky is the limit and hopefully some boundaries will be pushed. We aim to provide a friendly environment and range of activities for over 50's who would just like to socialise and have fun. Feel free to suggest events that interest you as they will surely interest others in this diverse group.

The more people who become involved in hosting events, the more successful this group can be. Please become involved. You will gain a lot from that involvement and not just feel like you are a passenger. Feel free to make suggestions to the organisers or directly.

Some important Information

1) The group is a social group, not a singles pick up group - if single members wish to take the next step, it is at their own discretion. Note that members can be blocked if there are any complaints of unwanted attention either in person or via the messaging service. Please be courteous and understanding.

2) All Members must be over 50 years of age.

3) A current photo showing a clear picture of your face is required to join and maintain membership of the group.

4) Fees. A gold coin organiser fee is payable to the event host at all events. This small fee covers the cost of Meetup charges and administration charges.

5) The aim is to have this as a group run by its members for its members. Organisers should only be required to play a monitoring role and to help event hosts. No committees, no egos, no drama.

Crazy Feet Rock n Roll Dance Lesson

Greenslopes Bowls Club

• What we'll do Four step rock and roll lessons. Cost is $12.50 per night payable at the door. Beginner lesson from 7pm to about 7:45pm short break and then more advanced lesson for the remainder of the evening with another break. Beginners are OK to join the advanced classes if they feel comfortable. No partner is necessary as the dancing is progressive. Lessons are based on a four week cycle. That is, learning a sequence of steps over four weeks. There is lots of repetition so as a real novice I have found these classes enjoyable and successful. • What to bring Water bottle might be useful but water is supplied. • Important to know Note the Crazy Feet lesson fee is $12.50 per night and there will be no Meetup fees to make it a little easier. The night may not always be hosted but come along anyway the dance group is friendly.

Trivia at Soho, Fairfield Gardens every Tuesday 7 pm

Soho Gardens Fairfield

Join me for trivia at the fabulous Soho Gardens at Fairfield Gardens Shopping Centre – at the Aldi end, next to Grill’d. Heaps of parking and a short walk from train or bus. Nice meals from $15, snacks from $10 that make great sharing plates, and yummy desserts. I’m a sucker for a sticky date or an Eton mess. Licensed with a great selection of beers, including locally brewed beers, wines and cocktails. Arrive at 6.30 pm if you want to chat or order a meal first, trivia starts at 7 pm & finishes 9 pm. If only a couple of meetup members, you’ll be joined up with other teams so you won’t be on your own. See the host Margie when you arrive. Prizes for places plus a cash jackpot that increases each week. Click on the word Jackpot on the website www.triviamill.com.au for the first jackpot question each week and also follow Trivia Mill on Facebook for hints for some of the questions. Bring some friends and join the fun! Nice & warm inside on a cold winter's night.
