What we’re about
It’s Boomertime is an organization dedicated to adding new friends, adventure, excitement, and fun to our every day lives. It’s Boomertime is one of the most active Meetup groups in Austin, with currently over 100 events every month giving members the opportunity daily to choose to enhance their lives in a variety of ways. We are fortunate to have the assistance of numerous "Event Hosts" who regularly post a wide variety of events: hiking, happy hours, dining, sports events, dancing, live music, arts, daytrips, campouts, yoga, gallery tours, movies, theater, game nights, festivals, holiday parties and a whole lot more. You are sure to find some events and some great friendly people to enjoy those events with. As a member you are invited to pursue becoming an "Event Host" and/or "Event Organizer" and share your ideas of fun and happiness with others. Hosting an event is one of the best ways to get to know new people and make new friends.
HISTORY: It's Boomertime was started about ten years ago for people born after World War II, hence, the Baby Boomer name derivative. People aged, at that time, in their late 40's to 60"s qualified as Baby Boomers. Most of our members today are in their 40's and 70's, and, if you enjoy hanging with fun folks in that age range, you are welcome at Boomertime.
CODE OF CONDUCT: All are welcome in Boomertime as long as he or she respects the right of others to be different, have different goals, or have different ideas on life. We promote all the things that bring us together and discourage things that divide us, or, drive us apart. We do not allow promotion of products, services, special interest groups, politics, or a particular religion. These areas cause controversy and discontent and interfere with fun and happiness which is what we are about. There are plenty of places to go for these areas of life, but, Boomertime is designed to be the one place in today's society free from controversy, drama, and opinionated discourse. All comments and postings in Boomertime must be positive in nature and be related to Boomertime Events. Let's all get together and enjoy the good, the happy, and the fun. Our goal is that every member should feel at home and comfortable at Boomertime events regardless of personal preferences.
