What we're about
Are you OFF??? And I don't mean off your rocker! I mean OUT FOR FUN (OFF)! I hadn't been, so that is why I started this meetup group.
I wanted to make a place for singles OR couples 21 years and older that are looking for things to do with other people. Note that this is NOT A DATING SITE/GROUP. It is a place to find other people that are wanting to get out and do things, but do not have anyone they know that either enjoys the same things or those friends aren't available to do them. Check out our group reviews! You can see that we have a super diverse and friendly group that tries hard to make everyone feel welcomed and at ease.
We have had well over 400 meetups in the 3 1/2 years we've been around and are now the largest meetup group in Fort Wayne! The activities that we enjoy are anything from outdoor activities such as hiking/camping/fitness walking to indoor activities such as dinners/potluck parties/nite clubs and movies. The laughs have been many and the friendships formed have been priceless:) It was my plan and goal to make it easier for singles or couples to find other people that are looking to get OUT FOR FUN!! And have we EVER been doing that:)
HOW TO USE THIS MEETUP GROUP: Any of the organizers listed to the left can make a meetup. If you have an idea for a great meetup then you can start a discussion under the "discussions" tab at the top to post a question or suggestion for a meetup. I ask that you keep the topics to meetups and any personal issues or topics off of the boards:) We do many repeat meetups such as tennis, hiking, and frequently meet for dinners or movies. So keep your eyes peeled for emails announcing new meetups as well as reminders of upcoming ones! If you would like to see what kinds of meetups we've had in the past, feel free to browse the them under the "Past" tab.
So let's get out and have some fun people!! We look forward to meeting you all;)
DISCLAIMER: AGAIN! This group is NOT A DATING SITE/GROUP! Nor was this group started for sexual exploitations or to find other people to have illicit affairs. Please be aware that complaints of members will be taken seriously and any vulgar messages/discussions removed.
To RSVP to an event you must go to the event page and then click on the RSVP button in the upper righthand corner. NOTICE: Should your plans change and you need to back out, you MUST change your RSVP to "not going." Because we've become so large, and as a courtesy to those hosting the meetup, if you do not change your RSVP and you "no show" it will be noted in your profile. Should you acquire 3 "no shows" and RSVP for a Meetup that has a limit on attendance, your RSVP will be removed as well as those requiring a reservation (ie. Dinners, etc) Check out the full Policy listed under "Discussions."
A word on donations: I, as well as the other co-organizers, do this strictly on a volunteer basis. To be the lead organizer for a group, I am solely responsible for the fees associated with this group which ends up being $144 a year, plus any supplies that we have for our bigger parties. Guess what? I HATE asking for money. So I'm putting this little blurb in here letting you know that you are not obligated in anyway, shape or form to pay membership dues, but if you have a good time at the meetups and enjoy attending them why not help us out and throw a few bucks our way to help cover the cost:-) You can donate online to the left, or you can give money to one of the organizers listed to the left at a meetup and they will make sure it gets put in our meetup "pot". We are NOT making any money on this...in fact, a little over 5% of our members donate per year. So help us stay around for years to come and donate a few bucks when you can if you feel you are benefiting from the group:-) Your donation is GREATLY appreciated!!!
