For both natives and newcomers of all ages: We are an active, fun-loving group. The WNC Social Club is about making new friends, having lots of fun, and enjoying Western North Carolina and beyond!
Whether you are ready for activity, adventure, exploration, music, games, dancing--or endless other possibilities--WNC offers so much to do! Our events, and planned future ones, include:
>Indoor skydiving, zip lining, and hiking
>Playing trivia, singing karaoke, and dancing to favorite local bands
>Trying out some of the 250 Asheville independent restaurants and breweries
>Attending sports events, concerts, movies, theatre, and comedy shows
>Overnight or weekend travel for activities such as beach trips, pro ball games, casino nights, and amusement parks.
Possibilities include Atlanta and its museums and Underground, Baltimore's harbor area, NYC Times Square, Savannah's historic River Street, even a cruise! If you're new to the area, let's find out together why WNC is where everyone wants to be. Long-time residents, share your favorite places, and discover new things you have never done.
1. Membership dues are $5 per year. Please pay your dues to an organizer within 30 days of joining. Future payments will be due in January of each year. Member dues cover the costs of using the Meetup site. Any extra funds are saved for future site expenses and/or a special club event and expenses.
2. Have a recognizable picture of yourself on your profile.
3. If you RSVP to an event, please show up. If you have to cancel, please change your RSVP and message your event host ASAP. We don't want to inconvenience event hosts and other members who wait for folks who don't show up, and we don't want to get a bad reputation with venues who have reserved space for us. We are often given VIP seating, and don't want to disappoint the venues with empty seats!
4. Show respect for all other members, as well as staff and other patrons at events. No discrimination of any kind is acceptable. This is not a religious or political-affiliated group; so please leave those conversations at the door. If you have a personal dispute, please do not conduct it at an event or on the group's Meetup pages. No harassment, sexual or otherwise, bullying or targeting of another individual, whether they are a group member or not at a meet up is not permitted. If there is a physical contact and a complaint is filed with the organizer, all are taken seriously. We want all members to always feel safe and comfortable at all events.
This is not a singles club. Anyone single, married, or in a committed relationship is welcome. We encourage all members to bring their talents and interests to the group.
We try to make room for everyone to attend events, but sometimes there is a waitlist. If you are on the waitlist, keep an eye out for cancellations that could bump you up to attending.
If it turns out this group's events don't appeal to you and you never attend, please consider removing yourself from the group so we have an accurate list of current, active members. But don't forget, we encourage members to become event hosts and suggest new activities to appeal to an even wider crowd! We look forward to seeing you soon!
