EleRatch - Oakland
Black Women - 30+ who are successful, like to travel, and a nice balance of bourgeois and ratchet.
I’ve searched meetup and didn’t see anything active that’s close to what I’m looking for. I’d just like to meet a group of women with the intention of befriending a few who are up to trying different things. Basically looking for my tribe! I’m new to the area and now that the outside in Cali is about to fully open up I would love a packed social calendar to match it.
Would love to sync with positive women, who are doing good yet also leveling up, who have fun, are elegant and a lil ratchet (hence the name EleRach-lol) who aren’t flakes and love exploring the city and other areas.
Join me as we embark on a summer to remember!
The Sweeps Hiking Group
Walnut Creek, CA
Want to hike with others but cannot meet early in the am or hike for 4-6 hours? Do you find yourself hanging in the back of the pack with the sweep on other meetup hikes? Then, this is the group for you!
We are slower walkers (25-30mins per mile) that like to enjoy the scenery and the company. It’s more than just exercise and getting through the route as fast as you can. Walking in nature clears your mind and allows you to reconnect with yourself and your surroundings.
Our hikes will usually be 3 to 5 miles in Contra Costa and Bay Area. Explore the trails with us! All ages welcome.

PLEASANTON PICKUP SOCCER GROUP
Welcome to our pickup futbol group!

We only ask for a small $10 per year contribution to help cover the cost of goals & other equipment.

GROUP RULES <br>PLEASANTON PICKUP SOCCER GROUP
Each player, whether brand new or fairly seasoned, should know what to expect when he/she comes to our games. For that to happen, each player has to know the group rules. So, take a minute to read through the rules below.
It’s a must to play. Your RSVP reserves your spot on the field for you and your guest(s), but only if you arrive on time. Spots are often limited by a healthy turnout for each game. So, if you can’t make it, be sure to change your RSVP ASAP so that a player waiting for an open spot gets a chance to play. If you RSVP, but show up more than 20 minutes after the posted game time, you may not be able to play (see below).
You can bring up to 2 guests to a game (Except some weekday games, which are in high demand). A guest can try out our group & see if they like us. If the guest wants to come to game 2+, he/she probably likes us. He/she will need to sign up for our group & RSVP to come to game 2+.
This is the maximum number of players allowed to RSVP to a game. The cap is set to keep the games fun for everyone by avoiding over-crowded fields.
Players trying to RSVP for a game that is already full will enter a waiting list. When a spot opens up, you will be automatically RSVP’d to the game. However, if you’d like to bring a guest, you will be automatically RSVP’d only when enough spots open up for you and your guest(s).
Wait-listed players and others who did not RSVP may also join our games IF players who did RSVP do not show up within 20 minutes of the posted game time.
Game Start Time
The posted game time is the intended arrival time, not the game-start time. We allow 15-20 minutes for people to arrive, stretch, lace up, and get ready to play. Sometimes, it takes a little longer. But, we try to get started as early as possible. If the game is scheduled for 8:00pm, you should aim to be on the field and ready to play by 8:15pm. We pick teams 20 minutes after the posted game time.
When is a player considered to be late?
If you are not on the field and ready to play (not getting ready to play) within 20 minutes of the posted game time, you are late.
If you are late, you are not guaranteed to be able to play, regardless of whether or not you RSVP'd. When we start picking teams, we will choose from the players who are on the field and ready to play.
If you show up 20+ minutes after the posted start time, YOU CAN ONLY PLAY in the 2nd half of the game IF: (1) you do 30 pushups AND 30 squats upon arrival WHILE counting off out loud for everyone to hear; (2) you're willing to wait until half time to jump in; (3) the game has not reached the maximum players permitted. If you half-ass the pushups/squats (i.e. do less than 30 each or do not do complete ones), the group assistant organizers and I will interpret that to be disrespectful of the group rules and fellow players, which will be grounds for removal from the group, permanently.
If you RSVP to a game but don’t show up, someone on the waitlist that wanted to play may not be able to because you did not hand over your spot. If you RSVP but later find out that you’re not able to come, please change your RSVP so that someone else gets a chance to play.
Players that do not show to a game after RSVPing will be warned on the first incident. But, we will remove players who repeatedly no-show. It's up to the Organizer's discretion to determine what constitutes as "repeated."
Attire & Equipment
All players are required to wear appropriate footwear and clothing for field sports. Each player should bring a light and dark shirt to every game (so we can easily break up into teams). Soccer cleats & shin guards are strongly recommended because they help to prevent injury. But, they are not required.
This group was formed for four main reasons:
To unite people in the enjoyment of the beautiful game of soccer, or fútbol, as you like;
To socialize, make new friends, and enjoy each other's company;
To get some exercise while having fun at the same time; &
To give players of all skill levels a safe and friendly environment to play in.
We can only accomplish our group purpose if everyone practices good sportsmanship at all times during our games. It’s a must. That means:
Welcoming and getting to know other players;
Helping with field setup and breakdown;
Passing the ball often (& not just to friends or people you’ve played with before);
Volunteering to play goal-keeper rather than waiting for someone to ask;
No aggressive behavior, negative comments about other players, whining, or excessive arguing over past plays; &
No dangerous plays, such as slide tackles, body checks, high kicks, & flying kicks or headers. No play, no matter how great, is worth the risk of hurting someone.
Our group is not about competitive league play. It’s about meeting new people, making new friends, enjoying a great game, and above all, having fun!
If you feel someone is treating you poorly or making you feel unwelcome on the field, please speak with an organizer, and we'll get it sorted out. We want all players to feel welcome and safe in our group.
E-mail is the primary way that we communicate with the group. So, all members must register a valid e-mail with Meetup.com. Players cannot effectively participate in the group, and they will be removed.
When discussing specific games, we often communicate through Meetup comments. So, be sure to check those out as well. For those of you with a smartphone, we recommend that you download the Meetup app. It’s free, and it will notify you when new comments and game changes are posted.
Inactive players are periodically removed from our roster. Any player who does not attend at least 1 game within 3 months is considered inactive. If you are removed due to inactivity, you can always re-apply to the group when you plan to become active again.
If you get removed from the group for any reason, you may apply to re-join, but approval is not guaranteed. A second removal is likely to be permanent. If you are banned, you will not be allowed to re-join the group under any circumstances.
Enforcement Of Rules
The group organizers reserve the right to take any and all reasonable steps necessary to ensure that the above rules are respected by all group members in their broadest sense. All members are required to agree to the rules upon registration, and any member who fails to follow them may be removed from the group. Honestly, most of this stuff is common sense. We're not out to give anybody a hard time. We just want to make the group as enjoyable as possible for everyone. The rules help us do that, so please respect them.
Thank you for reading. If the rules sound fair to you and you agree to follow them, we invite you to become a part of our group.
Risk of Injury
Like most sports, playing futbol/soccer comes with the risk of serious injury. By agreeing to the above rules and participating in your games/events, you understand that there is a risk of injury to you, possibly through no fault of your own. By participating in our games/events you understand and agree that you may be seriously injured during our games/events.
Bay Area - Hike On!
Pleasant Hill, CA
Anyone interested in a fun social hiking experience, should consider joining our friendly group. The hikes are mostly moderate in difficulty, though more challenging hikes (and some easy) are often posted (and identified as such). The hikes are usually 6 to 10 miles in length (3 to 5 hours) in the San Francisco Bay Area, primarily in the East Bay (e.g. Walnut Creek, Oakland, Berkeley, Castro Valley, Antioch). We hike as a group at a moderate 20 to 23 minute pace, stopping intermittently to keep the group together. Dogs are welcome on most of our hikes where the parks/trails permit.
The Bay Area has a number of incredibly beautiful regional and state parks. Joining a group such as ours is the best way to be introduced to the diverse outdoor adventures available in our wonderful area. There is no cost to join the group or attend the hikes. I do request you post a recognizable picture of yourself.
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!

East Bay Pick-Up Soccer (Co-Ed) EVERYBODY WELCOME!!!
San Leandro, CA
Words from the group's founder: Daniel "Uber" Bäsel
I am looking to start up a casual pick up game here in the East Bay with some like minded people. To see if you are interested, let me introduce myself...
I was born and raised in Germany and played soccer from the age of 3 all the way through high school and then casually into my late 20's.
Now in my mid-30's and many pounds heavier, I am far from peak conditioning but would like to start casually playing soccer again on the weekends.
Ideally I would like to play either Saturday or Sunday mornings for about 2 hours in the San Leandro/Castro Valley/Hayward area at a location we can all agree on. I can provide the nets and cones as well.
EVERYBODY is welcome, but if you are a pro player and expect an ultra competitive setting this may not be for you.
I would love to build a little community of like minded soccer fans from around the world to spend a few hours with each week kicking the ball around!
If you are interested, please join this group and i will get in contact with you!!
Here are a few rules to follow when deciding to join us for a friendly pick-up game. most of these are pretty "common sense" but I still think it is a good idea to lay them out so everyone knows what to expect (Please note that breaking these rules will eventually result in a ban from this group):
1) "The Golden Rule": We are all here to have fun, get a little exercise in and walk away happy and most importantly healthy. Slide tackling/Body Checking is ABSOLUTELY NOT permitted ANYTIME and doing so will result in a warning as well as a free kick for the other team.
2) "Everybody's Game" : This is a MeetUp group for EVERYONE who would like to come and play. Young and old, male or female, skilled or brand new to the game of soccer. Please treat it as such. If you are a skilled player with lots of experience, try to involve the players who may be new to the game as good as you can.
3) "Foul Language" : We are all adults in this group and I sure have a potty mouth at times. Just a few things to keep in mind though. Cursing or directing foul language at another player is NOT TOLERATED and will result in a warning. If the game angers you to the point where you have to direct foul language at another player, perhaps this is not the meetup for you.
4)"Goalies" : Most people don't like to play goalie but if we all share the duty of playing goalie, it becomes less of a hassle for everyone. Please volunteer to play goalie rather than having to be asked to.
Active Women Over 45 - East Bay
This group will host 5-10 mile East Bay / Marin hikes and stand-up-paddling events. (We can add activities based on member interests. For now, groups will be limited to 5-12 people to keep everyone safe. Looking forward to meeting everyone!
LezBayIns: Lesbians Around The Bay Over 50
This Meetup is for Lesbians over 50 who live anywhere in the Bay Area (south, north, east, or SF) who want more options to do fun, interesting, artistic, athletic, intellectual, culinary, outdoor, indoor, pretty much anything with other Lesbians over 50 anywhere in the Bay Area...*THIS IS YOUR MEET UP...AND ALL ARE WELCOME TO POST THEIR EVENT IDEAS!*
If there's a performance (film, play, concert, comedy...) you want to attend with other lesbians over 50...
If you have a favorite dining or drinking venue OR you want to check out a new one with other lesbians over 50...
If there's an outdoor spot you love (beach, woods, trails, urban) you'd like to explore with other lesbians over 50...
If you have a hobby or interest you'd enjoy sharing with other lesbians over 50...
You get the idea! The sky's the limit, and the whole Bay Area is our playground.
We are 4 lesbian co-organizers (all over 50), but anyone who joins this Meetup group can propose, and then post & host a Meetup. The 4 of us will get things started, but the goal is to "open this up" so a wide variety of interests and Bay Area locations are eventually represented.
DISCLAIMER: The organizers and leaders of this group are volunteers, not professional guides. When joining, you agree to attend all events at your own risk. You and your guests will hold no one liable in case of injury or mishap. Hiking, other outdoor activities, and travel to/from events are not risk-free.

Walnut Creek Over 60+ Social Group
Walnut Creek, CA
This group is for outgoing, interested and curious people who enjoy socializing, meeting new people, exploring interesting topics, and participating in small-group events and activities. Our get-togethers will focus on having great conversations, sharing experiences, and having fun with other like-minded people.
Especially welcome are people 60 and over. If all or most of us have been fully vaccinated, we will be able to meet in person for the majority of our events, or occasionally participate in Zoom get-togethers.
Our events can include picnics in the park, meeting at restaurants and cafes, taking gently-paced walks, visiting cultural sites such as museums and historical locations, attending entertainment events, participating in wine tastings, and other ideas suggested by group members.
SOME GENERAL GUIDELINES FOR THIS MEETUP GROUP
The organizers of this group purposely did not create any rules or requirements for its members to follow, except those that one would expect due to common sense and common courtesy. These include:
-- Treat each other with respect, dignity, and kindness.
-- Bring your enthusiasm, friendliness, and good humor to our events.
-- RSVP when you can attend an event, and be sure to change it if you are unable to attend.
-- We prefer not to impose waitlists unless there are real space limitations.
-- At the present time, all of our events are exclusively outdoors. Please bring a mask in case you need to briefly enter the host´s home. We prefer that all guests remain outside during most of the get-together.
-- For potluck events, we prefer not to organize food/drink lists, so bring what you like, as long as you bring something. Food should be ready-to-eat -- it is not the host´s job to prepare your food or store it in the refrigerator or freezer for you. And be sure to take your leftovers and dishes home with you when you leave.
-- Be sure to enable communications on our Meetup page, so you don´t miss important information such as addresses of our event venues. We think this may be the reason why some people don´t receive every communication.
--It would be a good idea to have the phone number or email address of another member so that, in the event you don´t receive necessary information from us for any reason, you can contact another member.
--For privacy reasons, we will provide hosts´addresses only to those who RSVP, and not sooner than 1-2 days before an event. We will not provide hosts´ phone numbers, only our own. If you plan to continue attending our events, it would be a good idea to keep a record of our phone numbers.
-- Feel free to organize supplementary events along with our get-togethers, as one of our members did when she organized a wine tasting before a large group event. Also feel free to suggest future group events/activities to the organizers.
-- We are continuously looking for members´ homes, particularly those with large outdoor areas, for our events, so if you have the capacity to host one, please let us know. Since we have members from all over the East Bay, as well as beyond, we may want to arrange carpools for some events.
-- Arrive at our events when you can. We would prefer that you come to an event late rather than not come at all.
-- We want to minimize the amount of effort required of our hosts, so please help with setup and cleanup when you can.
Bay Area Spice of Lifers 55+ ~ Alate Events & Adventures
San Ramon, CA
SOCIAL GROUP FOR FUN FUN FUN, JOIN US AND LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST WITH FRIENDS! <br>
Alate Meaning: Winged Like, the word is comprised of the Latin roots āla meaning "wing" and the suffix -ate which was used in Latin to make a word an adjective. "You were born with wings, why prefer to crawl through life?"
Joining Alate Events & Adventures will allow you to Spread your Wings and try activities you have always wanted to, but maybe just did not have anyone to do them with or you did not know how to plan it out and make it happen. This group is made up mostly of members in their mid to late 50's and 60's.
The planning will be done for you! So come out of your shell, come out of yourself, Spread Your Wings and Grow. Come and share in the fun of various events & adventures such as theme parties, dancing, concerts, dining, rafting, bowling, kayaking, motorcycle riding, hiking, cruising, overnight trips, day trips, wine tasting, the options are endless. Each event will post the descriptions and details for you to determine if it's a good fit for you. For example if a motorcycle ride is posted and you do not own a bike, ride a bike or want to be a passenger then this would not be the event for you to sign up for. But if you like to ride bicycles and a bike riding event is posted then this would be right up your alley.
And just think, you don’t have to go it alone, you will always have a group to share the experiences with.
Join the group if you are in the age range of 55+
Activities could be small intimate affairs to large group events. Events will be held in various locations from the East Bay, South Bay, Tri -Valley and more.
There may be times when events are posted as an FYI Un-hosted only to share the information with the members. I might not be attending to host them. In these cases I will ask the members if there is someone who would like to step in as the Event Host and if no volunteers then it will be marked as Un-hosted Event. So still do RSVP so that other members know who will be going and then you can make arrangements for carpooling, meeting up etc.
Some activities may have a charge involved and PayPal will be used when required for payments to be remitted.
If you like variety and you like to stay active then join us and get ready to Spread Your Wings!
I ask for a minimal annual dues of $10 to assist in paying the meetup dues of $200 per year. You can pay it via Zelle, PayPal or Cash. Message me to arrange payment. If you want to attend an event or two first then after two then they should be paid.
****Be sure to read the group guidelines posted under the More tab/ Files Section, they are subject to change as the group evolves.
An actual profile picture of "you" is required to join please. Not your pet, or a flower or the sunset but of your face.
No Show Policy, The goal is to provide everyone with a wonderful experience. When someone is a “no-show” it can keep the group waiting, leaves spots empty and it’s not fair to our events host at reserved seating events and it's certainly not fair to members on the wait list who might have been able to attend. The spirit of this rule is to encourage attendance so that all our members can look forward to a good turnout at our events. A "no show' can be immediate grounds for group removal.
A “no-show” is someone who signs up for an event and does not attend the event. If a member fails to attend one event during the calendar year in which they RSVP’d “yes” to, that member may be removed from the Meetup group. We understand that last minute things happen, but failing to let us know beforehand or making a habit of not showing up will result in being removed.
Late Cancel: Canceling an event one to two days prior is considered late, and also grounds for removal if this becomes consistent.
#####This meetup group, organizer and home hosts can not be held liable for any issues you may have by choosing to participate in an event as described. Upon attending said events you are accepting all liability for your actions and decisions. If anyone appears to be intoxicated at a home event, you will be asked for your keys and to get a ride home and return the next day for your car.

If you become member then please say something about your self ( it is important ) find events that are of interest to you and check it out .If event is one of your first once walk to the event organizer and introduce your self we will take it from there .My organizers and myself, plan a lot of great events, such as Wine Tasting, Happy Hours, Dancing, Dining out, Weekend Get-aways, Miniature Golf, Karaoke, movies and much more as much as we find time for it .
And for some of us that possibly looking for love give your self time to know someone no hurry :0) Just remember Giving someone a chance isn't "settling down" ..... it's opening yourself up to someone who may ultimately be right for you...nothing more nothing less just that .
Be respectful and mindful of other members .

Diablo Valley Photography
Walnut Creek, CA
This is a group for people who are interested in learning more about digital photography, how to use their cameras, and to make better pictures for travel, portraits, family, wildlife, landscape, etc. People with all levels of expertise are welcome.
Our group members are very interested in holding lots of fun, varied and challenging events that are mostly free. All of our members help to provide content to our site that is informative. We help support and mentor our members to ensure everyone has a good time and continues to learn about photography.
In order to keep most of our events free and to pay for the costs of our meetup site, there is an annual dues charge of $15 for members. We have instituted a trial period of 30 days.
Only members who have paid their dues will be permitted to attend our events. Since our site is semi-private to members, please feel free to join, take a look around the site and decide whether our group is right for you. Our goal is to keep the group small so that everyone gets to know each other. If your plan is to join without participating, then this group will not be a good fit for you. We hope you join and stay!
