Mensa / San Francisco Region

San Francisco, CA

Mensa / San Francisco Region

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 membership@sfmensa.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!

Hiking in Marin: Mountains, Meadows, Marshes and Mist

Mill Valley, CA

Hiking in Marin: Mountains, Meadows, Marshes and Mist

This group is for everyone who wants to explore the stunning beauty and remarkable trails of verdant Marin County. We spend much of our time hiking among the majestic redwoods, but we'also take advantage of Marin's glorious coastal-trail views, its high peaks, and its many streams and waterfalls -- sometimes all in the same hike!


Many of our hikes are fairly moderate in both distance and pace, though we do mix in longer hikes with more vertical, as well as occasional beginner hikes. But regardless of distance, virtually all of our hikes are limited in attendance, so that we can ensure everyone's safety and attempt to keep the group together as much as possible. Smaller groups also make for a more intimate, natural experience in the wilderness, which is particularly important to us because we like to get off the well-known trails as much as possible. There are plenty of 100-hikers-and-a-cloud-of-dust groups on Meetup, rampaging along the fire roads. This is not one of them.


Because we limit numbers, the majority of our hikes have wait lists. If you join a waitl ist, you are expected to monitor it, and your email, to find out whether you have moved up to confirmed. RSVPs and wait lists will close at 5 pm the night before the hike, and no one will move up after that time, so you don't have to worry about a late-night promotion to confirmed that you don't see until the next morning. 5 pm the night before is also the deadline for anyone on the confirmed list to cancel an RSVP.


PLEASE NOTE: If you fail to show up for a hike with a wait list, or cancel at the last minute, you'll be removed from the group. It's a one-strike policy. Be fair -- let someone else have your spot when you decide not to go.


If all of that sounds good, then please join us as we explore the striking beauty awaiting us in our local forests, mountains and coastal trails.


Let's go hiking in Marin!

Drive Fore Birdies

San Francisco, CA

Drive Fore Birdies

Membership is limited and member dues are required.

Who We Are & Where We Play:

We're avid mid- and low-handicap coed golfers who regularly play 18-hole courses together. We enjoy spending time with friends and good people. We LOVE golf and enjoy our friendships! We play year-round and regularly have several outings per month at a variety of courses all over the San Francisco Bay Area.

Pairings:

Everyone is encouraged to mix it up and play with someone new so that everyone has a chance to play with different members and get to know one another. Depending on the event or outing, we may group golfers according to handicap brackets for pace of play reasons.

Post-Round Activities:

Post-round drinks and food at a local restaurant or at the clubhouse. We value our friendships as much as our love for the game, but post-round socialization is optional.

Membership Policies:

• Membership Application & Member Profiles:  You must maintain a clear and recognizable facial picture of yourself as your group profile picture and you must use your first name. Please join us at a regular group outing within one month of membership approval so that we get to know you as a member and you get the opportunity to meet the group as well. Once you've paid your annual member dues, your membership and application process is finalized. There are no refunds after your member dues have been paid.

• Attendance Requirements:  As we regularly play 18-hole courses together, ideal members are those who frequently play with the group at our regular outings. Select events may be for regular attendees only as a reward for their active participation in the group. Minimal members (1 or fewer regular group outings per ~6 month period) and non-participants are subject to removal from the group, which will allow more room to our regularly attending members for limited-access special events. Tournaments, special events including GM MFAD events or NCGA Member Outings, and travel do not count toward meeting the minimal member  attendance requirement. 

• RSVP & Cancellation Deadlines:  Keep your RSVP status updated. All details including cancellation deadlines are posted on each event page. 

• Single/Twosome Vouchers or Deals:  Let members know your situation or plan. Please mention when you RSVP if you've purchased a twosome voucher/deal or are looking to share on someone else's purchase. If you missed out after they're sold out, either find someone who purchased a twosome or check if rack rate is available.

• Late Cancellations:  If you need to cancel after the posted deadline, contact me with your cancellation reason and update your own RSVP. Your absence will be considered a no-show unless you provide a valid explanation before the event. Members who no-show or last-minute cancel are subject to removal from the group.

About Me:

I host Drive Fore Birdies out of my own free time. Membership dues cover what Meetup charges me to host the group on their platform. 

• Drive Fore Birdies organizer & host

• started Drive Fore Birdies in 2016, started playing golf in 2016

• 1st place winner at Monarch Bay's 2018 coed individual match play tournament, so they've given me the nicknames Champ and Queen

• 1st place winner for women's longest drive and 2nd place winning coed team in randomly drawn 4-person scramble at Half Moon Bay 2019


See you soon on the golf course!
