Well-Seasoned Women

Sacramento, CA

Well-Seasoned Women

We are a group of dynamic retired or semi-retired women over 50. We live in the greater Sacramento area and are ready to star in the next stage of life.  Our meetups take place from Lodi to Rocklin, from Davis to Placerville, and every place in between. We are looking for women with positive attitudes willing to contribute to their own growth and success as well as that of the community.  We are interested in maintaining strong minds and bodies. We believe in moving forward and giving back.  Most of our activities take place weekdays, and some will include spouses and SO's.  Please note that we strive to maintain a “drama-free” environment.

We are always looking for help, so email the leadership team if you are interested in hosting events.  Due to size and liability issues we do not permit members to bring guests to events held in private homes or to events limited in number.

EXPECTATIONS:

·  Annual Membership Dues Required: $5. Dues payment required within 30 days of joining. Meetup charges for the right to post our events. We use these funds to pay fees, provide paper products at our potluck events, and host an annual anniversary party. No refunds are offered.

   Many of our events require payment in advance. It is not required but is strongly encouraged and preferred that payment be made using electronic means, such as PayPal, PopMoney, etc.

·  All members must post a profile picture (head shot) of themselves and have a valid email address within 30 days of joining. A picture of you must be posted in order to attend your first event with this group. We are often opening our homes to our members. This is a safety issue for those who do so and for those who attend. Please let us know if there is an issue of personal security that prevents you from doing this. We are happy to accommodate.

·  Members often would like to share rides to events. It is up to the person(s) looking for a ride to obtain one. We are unable to offer carpools to our members due to liability issues. When securing a ride with another member, it is the rider’s responsibility to require adequate car insurance, safety of vehicle, and competence of driver. Any monetary contributions are to be arranged between the driver and the rider. WSW and its members assume no responsibility in the event of accident or injury.

Attendance:  Any individual with (3) “no shows” (includes canceling the morning of the event) or a history of “late bail outs” (canceling the day/night before the event) will have future RSVP’s removed and be placed on a waitlist to allow members in good standing to attend. Those who get moved from the waitlist the morning of an event and do not attend will also be charged a “no show.” Those with 5 late bail outs will be removed from the group. We have a firm 10-minute wait rule for events. Those who RSVP and are late may be left behind. It is your responsibility to take care and manage your own RSVPs – including your place on a waitlist. This means changing your RSVP to “no” when you are unable to attend an event so that those on the waitlist above you are able to move up.

·  The organizers reserve the right to remove anyone from the group who violates these rules, does not fit the parameters of our group, has not paid dues, has a negative impact on the group, or endangers the safety and security of our members. This is a group for retired women and not a dating site.

·  This group does not support promotion of any kind, including marketing, products, or people. Any postings or actions of this type will be removed along with the person who posted it.

·  We love our pets – at home! Due to allergies and liability issues, please do not bring pets to events. Please know that many of our members who host events in their homes do have pets. It is your responsibility to inquire if you have issues with pets.

·  Don’t forget to check out our Facebook Group page!

·  If you owe dues and haven't visited our group in over 6 months, you will be automatically removed from the group.

By joining Well-Seasoned Women, you automatically agree to the terms of this release. This agreement releases Well-Seasoned Women (WSW) from all liability relating to injuries that may occur {during activity, on location, at members’ homes, etc. By joining, I agree to hold WSW and all associated parties entirely free from any liability, including financial responsibility for injuries incurred, regardless of whether injuries are caused by negligence.

I also acknowledge the risks involved in scheduled meetups. These include but are not limited to hiking, wine tasting, volunteering, cooking, swimming, working out. I swear that I am participating voluntarily, and that all risks have been made clear to me. Additionally, I do not have any conditions that will increase my likelihood of experiencing injuries while engaging in this activity.

By joining this group, I forfeit all right to bring a suit against Well-Seasoned Women for any reason. I will also make every effort to obey safety precautions as listed in writing and as explained to me verbally. I will ask for clarification, if needed.

If you owe dues and haven't visited the group on the web for over 6 months, you will be automatically dropped from the group. However, you may reapply to join.

Sacramento Area Golfers

Welcome to the Sacramento Area Golfers (SAG). We are a co-ed group of intermediate to advanced golfers who participate in golfing events around the Sacramento area, other cities and countries!  We travelled together to So. Africa (2016),  Scotland (2017), SE Asia (2019), and planning Australia/New Zealand 2021!!  We usually play 18 holes but on occasion will play a 9 hole course after work, or join group practice sessions to build on our golfing skills.  We try to follow USGA guidelines to the best of our abilities.  The bottom line is, we just want to golf, enjoy each other's company, and have fun!  We DO try to observe the basics of golfing etiquette.  

Minimum requirements to play with SAG:
- At least one year experience playing 18 hole courses.  This group is not for beginning golfers.
- Average score less than 110-115.  (If you're average score is closer to 120-130 you will need to increase your    skill level before playing with us)
-Know the basic rules of golf and golf etiquette
-You must have a recognizable photo of yourself on your member profile
-Please make sure that you have your first and last name on your member profile

Please know the basic rules of golf and golf etiquette before you play with our group.  

Being focused on your "Pace of Play", playing "Ready Golf", and adhering to golf etiquette are very important concepts in our group. Less experienced golfers can play well with more experienced golfers when these rules are followed.

CIRCLE of Homeschoolers

Citrus Heights, CA

CIRCLE of Homeschoolers

CIRCLE of Homeschoolers - (Children Involved in a Respectful Cooperative Learning Environment)


WHO ARE WE?  We are homeschoolers. You can use an umbrella school, some families use a private school affidavit, most use a local homeschool charter school. Regardless of means,  method, or philosophy we all just homeschool. We have kids of all ages from babies to teens and we plan a variety of activities that will appeal to all ages, as well as some that are specific to particular age groups.


WHAT WE DO AND WHERE?  We typically have several events a week and for the most part they are held in Fair Oaks, Folsom, Roseville then wherever else our adventures take us! Our events, field trips, educational days, holiday parties, classes, etc. are held throughout the surrounding areas depending on what families want to do each year..


OUR ATMOSPHERE!  To help our group thrive we need our group events to be harmonious. We like our events to be peaceful, inclusive, and filled with kindness. We try to avoid having an atmosphere that includes yelling, being unkind or harsh, or filled with drama. This goes for both the parents and the kids.


We do ask that all older kids remember that they are influencing the younger crowd and that they behave appropriately. We do not allow cursing, name-calling, or destructive/disrespectful behavior at our events. We can share information on our favorite curriculum and our favorite homeschool classes while our kids have a chance to learn and play together knowing that they are in a safe environment. If parents need to address issues with their kids, we ask that it is done so in a respectful way.


PARTICIPATION  This group requires in-person participation and support from its members to be successful. We ask that each family contribute by hosting an event in some way: by setting up a field trip or tour, hosting a co-op, opening up their homes for an event, planning a park day, planning a themed park day, etc. With each member planning at least ONE event per year per family (you can even plan an event with a friend) we can greatly enrich our homeschool year. There are many ways you can help, just let us know what your strengths are and what you can offer to the group.


FEES  This group does require an annual fee. Dues, $15.00 per family, are good through OCTOBER 2022. This will fund the Meetup.com site, but will also help the group by having people actually commit to being a part of it. Often free groups have lots of lookers without many active participants. By charging a fee, people tend to feel more committed and want to "get their money's worth" from the group by attending events and participating. 


PROCESS TO JOIN   We do require that you complete the profile questions (so we can learn about you), that you have a profile picture of yourself and/or your kids (this is so we can find you at the meetups), and attend an event or two before your membership is approved. Upon requesting to join, I will send you the details of the next three “Park Days” on our calendar, for a free trial if you will. Our Park Days can be simple to just get together and sometimes are themed and we are having a party or special activity. You do not need to arrive “on time” to Park Days as they are fluid and people come and go as their schedule allows. So if you will be an hour late that will be fine - the only exception is if it is a themed day because there will be a start time for activities so you may miss out if late. If that won’t bother you or your kids then still try to come! After attending at least one event should you decide the group is a good fit for your family, pay the annual dues, and the approval will be made.


WE ARE A NUT-FREE GROUP! Okay, we may be nutty homeschoolers, but because of the life-threatening allergies of some of our members, we do not allow nuts of any kinds (including peanut butter and other nut butters) at any of our events. If your food says it may be processed at a facility with nuts, it's okay to bring. If it contains nuts, it is not. [My kids like sunbutter better than peanut butter, if you are like me and now can only think of foods with nuts in them and need an alternative.]


If our group sounds like a good fit for you so far, please click above to join!! We look forward to meeting you and your homeschooling family soon!!

GOLDEN SOLES - an Over-50 Hiking & Walking Group

Citrus Heights, CA

GOLDEN  SOLES - an Over-50 Hiking & Walking Group


Golden Soles is an OVER-50, NO DOGS, WEEKDAYS ONLY hiking and brisk walking group. Our hikes are in SMALL GROUPS in order to support the community spirit of Meetup and increase our awareness of one another (safety). As a member, you’re expected to: 1) Follow all safety requests from your Hike/Walk Leader, 2) Be aware of your fellow hikers/walkers, and 3) “Leave No Trace”.

- - - - - - - - - - -

Golden Soles welcomes enthusiastic over-50 hikers looking to indulge in the sport of Social Group Hiking or Walking. We are NOT a speed-hiking group and we stay together throughout the hike, though we DO keep a fair pace going and our cardio pumping! We work up a sweat but we also take the time to enjoy the beauty of our surroundings! Please familiarize yourself with our THREE TYPES OF HIKES AND WALKS listed below.


Golden Soles honors the concept of Meetup to meet face-to-face in “real time” and share actual conversation with others interested in the sport of social group hiking and walking. In addition to the fitness component of hiking/walking, we also take the time for photo breaks, chit-chat, moments of awesomeness, snacks, and general breath-catching-up!

- - - - - - - - - - -

Golden Soles offers THREE TYPES OF HIKES AND WALKS:

1) BRISK WALKS – terrain is on smooth paved multi-use trails such as asphalt, concrete or gravel with most trails offering a soft shoulder on both sides. Average speed is a BRISK 20 min mile (3 mph) depending on terrain and your Hike Leader. Walks are usually from 4-6 miles. Elevation gains are easy to moderate but generally flat (see elevation gain in walk description as there might be some hills!). There is a short snack break at the half-way point. Drive times 10-30 min locally.

2) TRAIL HIKES – terrain could vary from paved multi-use trails, earthen trails, granite surfaces, uneven surfaces, rocky creek crossings, dirt roads, etc. Read the Details your Hike Leader has written in the hike description. Most of our hikes also provide map links which contain detailed data about the hike, which gives you super-great info to decide if the hike is "right" for you. Hikes can vary in: A) Trail Rating from Easy to Moderate, B) Length from 4 to 10 miles, C) Elevation Gains up to 1,800-ish feet, and D) Average Pace from 20 to 30 mins per mile. Breaks are dependent on the variables of each hike. Drive times can vary from 10-40 mins locally to 120-150 mins to our beautiful outlying areas. Estimated drive times or Google pin locator links are usually provided in the hike description too. 

3) PHOTOGRAPHY HIKES – terrain could vary from paved trails, earthen trails, and/or dirt roads. Range can vary from 4-8 miles. There will be plenty of stops for photo opportunities and sharing of knowledge. Varying drive times of 30-120 mins to trailheads.

- - - - - - - - - - -

Golden Soles is solely a social, non-professional, volunteer group. Only you can assess your abilities to attend a hike and are solely responsible for your safety and well-being. Please familiarize yourself with Meetup's Terms of Service.
