Photography Walks & Workshops in San Francisco by Casey
San Francisco, CA
Let's explore San Francisco by taking pictures (and videos) and learn new techniques along the way. Plus get outside for fresh air and exercise too! About me: I have been doing photography for over 35 years and used to shoot weddings, portraits, commercial work for decades. I am an expert in still photography having started with the Nikon F4 film camera plus the Hasselblad 503cx medium format film camera in the 90s, then transitioned to digital with the Nikon D1x and D2x in early 2000, and more recently changed to all Canon gear with the Canon R5 and 90D and M50 digital cameras. I also actively use the Canon XF400 and G60 camcorders for creating online content for my YouTube channel "Casey On Location". Because I enjoy photography and filming, I can also share my knowledge with others who share the same passion. I am a long-time resident of San Francisco since 1980 so I know quite a bit about The City by the bay. So join the group and we can shoot images and videos together at interesting spots in San Francisco, learn a thing or two from each other, and hopefully get in some sunshine and exercise too.

Mensa / San Francisco Region
San Francisco, CA
This MeetUp provides a dynamic way for members of San Francisco Regional Mensa to get the latest on Mensa events in the Bay Area and to more easily host their own Mensa events. The idea is that by eliminating the very long lead time now necessary to post things to the Intelligencer, we will have more, and more varied, events on the calendar.
You MUST be a *current* member of Mensa to join this group. When you click "Join Us" (above right), please include your full name AND your Mensa membership number so that we can verify your membership.
If you'd like to become a member of Mensa, please go to the SFRM website, http://www.sfmensa.org/, to find out how to qualify, or to locate a testing session near you. In the meantime, you can join us in our San Francisco Mensa Friends Meetup where we have events open to non-members.
Organizers and Event Organizers can post events directly to our Meetup site, but Meetup no longer allows non-organizers to post events directly.
If you are a member of our Meetup group, but not an organizer, and you wish to have an event posted, click on "Suggest a new Meetup", or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure and be specific as to what the event is, including a full description, date, time, and location. If you'd like the event to recur on a regular basis (e.g., 3rd Wednesday of the month), be sure to specify that as well.
We hope to see you soon!

There will be NO RSVP fee for any event. BUT, being a Meetup organizer is not free. I will be charging an annual $12.00 Non-refundable Membership fee. The Membership fee will be due and collected at your first event (unless I get Venmo or PayPal setup) and then it will be good for one year from the date you paid. This fee is non-refundable, meaning, you will not get reimbursed for whatever reason, including this Meetup group gets delete or cancelled for whatever reason and/or it you get delete from the group. If you join this group and do not attend any events within the first 4 months of signing up, you will be removed from the group. Even though you have paid Membership fees, you are still responsible for showing up at the events that you RSVP for. If you have 3 no shows, you will be removed from the group on your 3rd no show. If you cancel at the last minute, meaning, within in a couple of hours before the meetup event starts or you message me after the meetup starts, you will be removed. Considerate people only please.
If an event is hosted at a private house, the owner of the house is in charge of their guest list. They can pick and choose who they would like to attend. This might mean that a private home event might automatically go into a waitlist and the owner of the home will be able to create the guest list themselves (meaning, they can pick and choose who comes into their home).
IMPORTANT: I am not liable or responsible for you in anyway, shape or form for any event that you attend within this group. You are responsible for yourself at any events posted in this group. When you RSVP for an event, you are in agreeance to this information. No outside guests allowed at events posted on this Meetup.

San Francisco, CA
TSX started in 2011 with a single expedition across the Sierras... 10 years later and we have grown to provide treks all over the Sierras and in the Grand Canyon! Our crown jewel is still our week long Trans-Sierra navigation which finishes with a summit of Mt. Whitney but we have added 5 day treks in John Muir Wilderness and 3 night descents into the Grand Canyon. These trips are open to everyone and are doable for every skill level (we have had participants ages 11-70 make it up Mt. Whitney).
We provide free online classes and events on a weekly basis to help educate and inspire people about backpacking. Whether you are new to the outdoors or an experienced adventurer, get inspired by joining a TSX online event that’s right for you!
NOTE: We are still trying to figure out linking Meet Up with our events page. Please make sure you sign up on our website for our events to make sure you reserve a spot!
Coming Soon - In person training hikes around SF Bay. All are welcome whether you have signed up for one of our trips or not!

East Bay Ramblers
Welcome to East Bay Ramblers! This group is all about hiking for fun and fitness. We hike on weekday mornings...and also on weekends. If you love to hike, this is the group for you!
Some things you should know about the group:
• Hikes will normally be in the 4 - 10 mile range.
• We average a speed of 2.5 - 3.0 mph.
• Each hike posted will indicate the length and difficulty you can expect. Please be considerate of other’s time and only sign up for hikes within your physical ability that you can complete within the time allotted.
• Please RSVP to events only if you plan on attending. Be sure to update your RSVP if your attendance plans change, and avoid last-minute changes whenever possible.
• We wait at trail junctions to keep the group together, but as soon as stragglers are within sight the group will start off.
• There will be hills! You will need to be comfortable walking up and down steep hills.
• Most hikes are held in our beautiful East Bay Regional Parks with some excursions into State Parks and water district properties such as EBMUD and CCWD. We also occasionally organize urban hikes and trips to other regional park systems.
• Some hikes, but not all, will be DOG FRIENDLY and allow off-leash hiking. Some hikes will be on-leash and some will not allow dogs at all. Each hike will be clearly marked as either Dogs Off-leash, Dogs On-leash, or No Dogs.
• We are not professional hike leaders and don't have first-aid training. Participants must be responsible for their own safety and well-being.
This is a very social group. We like to talk, laugh, and enjoy ourselves while getting our exercise out on the trail. In the Bay Area we are incredibly lucky to be surrounded by hundreds of thousands of acres of open space filled with hiking trails. Join us as we explore and meet new friends!

True to our values, our goal is to share our special group with gay men throughout the Bay Area and beyond.

Casual Hikers of the East Bay
Casual Hikers of the East Bay is a slower paced group for those who want to get active, have fun, and meet like-minded people. We prefer to move at a more relaxed pace, eat snacks, and soak in the beautiful views of nature. Also, not waking up at the ass-crack of dawn is a plus!
There are so many amazing hiking groups out here with some amazing people, but many of the hikes are way out of our fitness range. This group is especially for those who want to experience the outdoors within the safety of a pack. Whether you're new to hiking or a wilderness expert, there's something here for everyone.
We welcome you to join our group with the understanding that fitness and sports activities are dangerous, and can result in injury or death.

Northern California Golf Club's Beginner+ Group
We are a social golf meetup group for those who have experience on a golf course, as well as beginners who have taken professional lessons.
Due to player developments or improvements in the golf skill level of many of the members, we branched out from our sister Club, the Bay Area Beginner Golf Meetup Group.
I am the creator of the below rules for the BABGMG (in 2012), so I am copying, pasting and updating them here, starting with some of our expectations:
- Familiarity with basic rules of golf and golf etiquette, particularly the practice of honoring a good pace of play;
- Respect for the game and our members;
- Adherence to our policies, including showing up for events on time or earlier if requested.
Whether you participate in our golf outings or our non-golf social events, you are responsible for any damages or injuries you cause to property or other persons. You are participating in NCGC's Beginner+ Group (NCGCb+) events at your own risk, and neither I/the Organizer nor the Event Organizers will be liable for damages or injuries caused by you or any of our members during our meetups or travel to and from our meetups. NCGCb+ is also not liable for any injuries inflicted upon it members or damages done to members' properties or loss of properties (including golf equipment, transportation, etc.) during events and travel to and from our meetups.
Also, you must use your real name or initials and a recent photo of yourself when signing up. If you are not comfortable with this policy or any of our other policies, this is not the group for you.
Let’s play our part in promoting and practicing the industry’s goal of finishing a round in about 4.5 hours.
Although this is a new golf meetup group, many members of this Club have been golfing together for more than 8 or 9 years. For close to a decade, we have been providing exceptional golf experience to players of all ages, and our group keeps getting better and better. We will continue to play 18-hole courses all over the Bay Area and sometimes beyond, as well as schedule 9-hole events and group golf lessons for the newer golfers in our group.
We oftentimes hang out after the round for a meal or a drink. This is optional, so don't feel obligated to stick around if your plans do not permit it.
We are open to suggestions for playing various courses in the Bay Area. If there is a course you would like to play, let one of the Event Organizers know and we will look to getting it on the calendar.
Annual NON-REFUNDABLE fee: $15.00
If a member is removed from our group, this fee will not be refunded.
ATTENDANCE and RSVPs
Our attendance policy is strict. This is a requirement as we reserve tee times up to two weeks in advance, and we are required to fill those tee times. Golf courses do not like last minute cancellations, as they make their money by having full foursomes.
When you receive notifications of scheduled meetups, it is not necessary to reply "No" if you are not attending an event. You have the option to click on "Yes" or "No," but you don't have to; you can simply delete the email without replying. Of course, if you RSVP "Yes" then your plans change, you must update your RSVP to "No."
Do not sign up for a meetup if there's a chance that you might have to cancel at the last minute. It's better for you to sign up at the last minute than to cancel at the last minute.
* Although one no-show may result in the removal from our group, the first no-show may only be given a warning, depending on the circumstances.
* Last-minute cancellations are frowned upon. A last-minute cancel is if you cancel your RSVP after the RSVP deadline or after an Event Organizer has posted the group assignments.
* A combination of a no-show and last-minute cancellation will also result in the removal from our group.
-- I understand that pace of play is very important to this group. If I am a slower player, I agree to pick up my ball if necessary to maintain a good pace of play.
-- Although there will be some 9-hole meetups scheduled, I understand that most of the meetups will be for those who are at an advanced-beginner or intermediate level. As a beginner, if I’d like (more) 9-hole or easier 18-hole meetups scheduled, I will request them.
-- I understand that this group takes its rules seriously and that infraction of any of the group’s policies will result in my removal without a refund of my membership dues.
-- I agree that by RSVPing to a meetup, I am committing to attend that event. I understand that cancellations should only be for exceptional circumstances and that multiple cancellations will result in my removal from this group without a refund of my membership dues.
-- I understand that some meetups may require a pre-payment, and in the event that I am unable to attend, it is my responsibility to find a replacement player. If a replacement is unavailable, I understand that I forfeit my pre-payment.
-- If health-related mandates are issued (including for COVID-19), I will be participating in NCGCb+ events at my own risk, and I agree to follow any and all social precautions imposed by the golf course and the county in which the course resides.
Thank you for observing and respecting our policies. We work hard to ensure that our members always have a great experience on the golf course.
Welcome to the Northern California Golf Club's Beginner + Group. We look forward to your upcoming participation.
