Bay Area Social 40+

Santa Clara, CA

Bay Area Social 40+

Bay Area Social (BAS) 40+ is a group for active people looking to expand their circle of friends.

We want to be your launching pad to all the special sights, attractions and events that are unique to this area while making new friends and strengthening ongoing relationships. We understand that sometimes meeting new people can be nerve-wracking but will do everything we can to make you feel welcome and be a part of BAS 40+. This group is not about numbers or how many people are in it; it's rather having fun doing activities we enjoy together now more than ever! 


                     G R O U P - R U L E S  - A N D  - E X P E C T E D - B EH A V I O R S  


YOUR PROFILE : In order to join the Bay Area Social (BAS 40+) group we require that you have a recognizable photo of yourself as your profile picture. It makes it easier to recognize you when you attend our events.  (A recognizable photo of yourself means: Your face is clearly shown, no group shots, no pets. Failure to maintain your photo will lead to your removal.)

AGE RANGE: Bay Area Social 40+ (BAS 40+) is made up of members whose age ranges from their 30s to late 60s.

RSVP / ATTENDANCE - POLICY: 

Our events occasionally will have limited space. Unfortunately this means that not everyone can attend. If you sign up for an event and find that you can no longer go, please update your RSVP. This helps out your fellow members by letting them move up off the waitlist.

Please note: If you attend an event without signing up, it's considered "crashing" and will get you removed from the group.


Finally, Our organizers put a lot of their time and effort to host these events, show them the courtesy of showing up if you have signed up. Members that have a repeating pattern of being a "no show” will be removed from the group.

45+ South Bay Active & Social Singles

San Jose, CA

45+ South Bay Active & Social Singles

DEAR PROSPECTIVE MEMBERS, <br>

THIS GROUP IS FOR MEMBERS AGES 45 and up. IF YOU ARE NOT WITHIN THIS AGE RANGE, PLEASE DO NOT APPLY. <br>

YOU MUST ALSO HAVE A RECENT AND CLOSE-UP PHOTO OF YOURSELF (just you, please, no other people) AS YOUR PROFILE PICTURE (we use this photo to recognize you in large settings and for safety reasons). ANYONE WHO WAS ACCEPTED BY USING A PHOTO REPRESENTING A " MUCH YOUNGER VERSION OF SELF" NOT SHOWING THEIR CURRENT AGE AND PHYSICAL APPEARANCE WILL BE REMOVED FROM THE GROUP. NO PICTURES WITH CHILDREN OR OTHER PEOPLE.

The 45+ South Bay Social Singles (45+SBSS) is all about making friends with other singles, getting to know them and becoming familiar with each other in a safe and fun environment.

Since its foundation, the 45+ has created long lasting relationships of many kinds. Although this is not a match-making program, we celebrate the romantic connections that have taken place in the past and are sure to continue in the future. Members that fall under this category are encouraged to remain in the group, even after they get marry.

We pride ourselves in considering this group part of our extended family and once a member of our family, you will ALWAYS be a member of our family… Unless you do something really "nutty" in which case we will have to let you go.

We monitor our membership and accept new members only after we feel comfortable that the previously accepted members have accommodated to us, attended events, etc…

Every few months, we remove members who have not participated in any events for more than 4 months, are constantly changing their RSVP at the last minute or have more than 3 "no shows." Then we start accepting new members again.

Please, it is very important that you read the section named "Pages" so that you become familiar with our rules and regulations to decide whether or not we are a fit for you before requesting for membership.

We do a variety of events: hikes, live theater, happy hours, karaoke, museums, music in the park, dancing… We are always looking for new ways to improve to create a more diverse calendar, to listen to members' suggestions and to do a lot of research to find fun activities to perform.

If you get accepted into our group, give us a try by attending several of our events. You will not regret it.

Hope to meet you soon!

Lida :)

"Amendment" to our policies: <br>

There is a strong group made of few members that have been loyal to our events, attending many of them and/or helping us organizing them as volunteers. These members have also shown a great deal of responsibility by showing up to those events they signed up for or have changed their RSVP few times and with enough time to allow others from the wait list to sign up. They are committed to make this group a nice place to come to.

We reward these fabulous people by having preference to events when their names are in the waiting list. The organizers of the events can decide which member can be moved up the list to attend events.

Thank you and hope to meet you in future events :)

South Bay Art

San Jose, CA

South Bay Art

This group is for anyone who is interested in creating and sharing art. All mediums such as charcoal, water color, oil paint, etc. are welcome. All skill levels are welcome as well. 

For our group's events, you'll find a mix of outdoor painting and indoor sketching and the locations vary from as far North as San Francisco to as far South as Monterey.  

Recently we've been posting and guest posting more indoor meetups as a result of the popularity of the portrait parties and sketching, but you'll still find a couple outdoor painting events a month as well.

I should say that the events aren't classes or workshops in that I consider the group more of a social group who's members enjoy creating and sharing art with other artists.  If you've got questions, are looking for a critique, or are stuck on something feel free to ask for help though. We really do have a nice mix of experienced artists.

Also, there are no fees for the group or events but sometimes there is a cost for things like parking or if we have events in coffee shops or restaurants we're usually expected to purchase something. I'll do my best to call out any fees in the event description as they come up.

If you have any questions or suggestions related to the meetup feel free to direct message me via Meetup.com's message service.

Looking forward to seeing you all and your art.

Ken

Northern California Golf Club

Fremont, CA

Northern California Golf Club

NORTHERN CALIFORNIA GOLF CLUB

We are a social golf meetup group, which offers its members an option to join our very own NCGA Associate Club by the same name: Northern California Golf Club.  To register, here is the link:

https://northerncaliforniagolfclub.memberplanet.com/

If you click on the above link, you'll see a green "Join This Club" button with a yellow star on it.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You are welcome to join us if you are an Intermediate+ golfer. Here are some 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 at NCGC events at your own risk, and neither the Organizer nor the Event Organizers will be liable for damages or injuries caused by any of our members during our meetups or travel to and from our meetups. NCGC 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, unless you are already a member of our Beginners group, 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.

OUR GOALS AND ACTIVITIES

Let’s play our part in promoting and practicing the industry’s goal of finishing a round in about 4.5 hours.

For over two years, 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.

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 also 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.

FEES

Annual NON-REFUNDABLE fee: $11.36

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, which might be a day or two before the RSVP deadline.

* A combination of a no-show and last-minute cancellation will also result in the removal from our group.

* Last-minute cancellations will be accepted from our "regular" members who have a good attendance record—until it starts to become a habit. 

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. We look forward to your upcoming participation.
