What we're about

Welcome to Socially Active Hamilton!

This is a Meetup group for people of all ages in and around Hamilton who are interested in meeting new people, getting out and about and trying new things, so come along and join in the fun. It really is a great way to meet new people and forge friendships that can extend beyond the realm of Meetup!

We encourage members to be active in suggesting ideas to help make Meetup events happen. If you would like to add an event, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with one of our Event Organisers and they can help you out.

Events can be varied and are only limited by your imagination, we have had movie nights, dinner and theatre outings and good old knees up at a local bar!! We are also into bush walks, beach trips, bike rides and kayaking - so try hosting an event you may be surprised at how many people attend!

When joining, please use a profile picture that is of you - this makes it easier for event hosts to keep an eye out for you when you're attending an event.

We hope you enjoy being part of this Group and all that it has to offer!

A few things to note:

1. Membership Fees

We offer a 4-week trial membership upon which time, a one-off JoinUp fee of $15 per person is payable to help meet the running costs of this site (as charged by Meetup International).

Account Name: Hamilton Moviegoers Account Number: 02-0316-0452206-066. Reference: Your Meetup name (for easy payment identification)

2. No-Shows and RSVP Rules

When you RSVP for an event you take up a place. If you don't show up you deny another member a place as events may be full. The same applies to changing your RSVP from "yes" to "no" just before an event. Even if events are not full, a Host often has to make arrangements based on the number of people that RSVP-ed.

We have a very low tolerance for no-shows and we think they are just rude and antisocial behaviour. Not only for the Hosts, who put a lot of energy and time in organising the events, but also for members who would have liked to come along but were denied that chance.

Therefore we have two simple rules:
1. Only RSVP if you plan to attend. As soon as this situation changes, change your RSVP
2. Not showing up at an event results in a no-show. Three no-shows means you will be permanently removed from the group.

3. Inactive Members

If you haven't visited the group in five months, then we will assume you are no longer interested and you will be removed from the group. You can re-join at any stage if you choose.

(Note: If you are a paid member, then you will not be required to pay the JoinUp fee again).
