Happy New Year! 2017! We are in the First Quarter of our 10th year in the thing called Meetup The whole goal of Meetup is to come to events, meet, make and develop those friendships . We call ourselves Tri County Adventures because life is an adventures and adventures should be done with friends.
I look back at the last 10 years of Meetup and it seems like lifetimes. Good times! I implore you to go to the photo section of this meetup group and see all that we have done over the years.
Things move pretty fast around here but we will guide you into the mix at your speed. Thanks for coming out to an event or two. You'll see that you like it after a while. The goal is 5 meetups. By 3 meetups people will start to recognize you and by 5 everyone will know your name just like the theme goes.
When I joined Meetup in 2006 it took me 3 months to come to my first event and that was a scary proposition. The people I met on my first Meetup became my friends through all our crazy adventures for the next few years.
You will find some Meetup groups charge dues. We do. We do it because at times we need to pay money up front to pay for a venue or a block of hotel rooms or van rentals and it is easier if we have extra money. We want to give back to you the member and we can do that with free giveaways or events.
We also want you to have a good time doing it so that is why we are giving you a 100% money back guarantee. We guarantee you will have a good time and make friends doing it. We guarantee that you will not be left out or feel ignored at an event. If at anytime you want to leave the group because you tried a few events and this groups wasn't for you we will refund your dues in full. That is how much we believe in this group.
In order to RSVP for an event you need to be in good standing. Our yearly dues are $24.00. If you send a check for $12.00 to Big Dave this will pay for one year. If you sign up to have dues taken out through WePay, it will be $2.00 a month for 12 months. Meetup takes a percentage of that $2.00 and Tri County gets the rest. If you decide you want to join Tri County Adventures email Big Dave and he will give you the next step to joining this group.
We are really good at plugging you into the community immediately and making new friends at the same time. There are a lot of great Meetup groups out there and we offer the most variety of them all. Every year we clock in about 365 events. That is almost 1 a day. We are like vitamins!
Tri County Adventures counts on members like yourself that bring energy and fun to the group. We like to do new stuff and South Florida has new stuff all the time. Today alone I read about 5 new restaurants and clubs opening and today is only Thursday.
I thank every day for Tri County Adventures and especially Meetup. I don't know where I would be without them. Beach night is our #1 event and we start that the first Tuesday after tax day. Put it on your calendars.
