East Bay Pick-Up Soccer (Co-Ed) EVERYBODY WELCOME!!!

San Leandro, CA

East Bay Pick-Up Soccer (Co-Ed) EVERYBODY WELCOME!!!




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...

About me:

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!!

RULES:

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.

All liability questions must be answered with, "Yes." for your acceptance into the group. 

HIKERS PLEASE NOTE  :

The majority of the hikes that are currently posted are rated MODERATE DIFFICULTY - occasionally we will post some easier and sometimes if the group requests , some a little harder , maybe longer . By signing up to hike / attend our weekly hiking events you should have some Hiking experience with being able to keep up with the group (22-25 min per mile) . In order to finish the hike in the described time allotted , Please Note  :  It is not our intention to hike the pace of the slowest hiker . Out of respect for other hikers and their experience, please understand your own physical ability and select hikes that are within your comfort range !  The Organizers wish to remind all members of this group that we are merely hike planners and have discovered some interesting trails in the East Bay Hills to share with other like minded outdoor enthusiasts.

5-7 mile day hikes each weekend; an occasional longer one for the challenge. Hikers with a spirit for outdoor adventure and those seeking a weekend workout are encouraged to stop by and check us out !

East Bay Ramblers

Oakland, CA

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!

EastBay PlayReaders

Alameda, CA

EastBay PlayReaders

VIRUS UPDATE: We are now reading on ZOOM with some in person readings as scheduled. Regular Zoom readings Sundays at 3:00pm and Wednesday Evenings at 7. Bring your own snacks and coffee! Script provided as always. Susan and Jeff


PLEASE BE SURE YOU HAVE SET YOUR MEETUP NOTIFICATIONS ON IN YOUR PROFILE, IF YOU WISH TO JOIN THIS GROUP. WE DEPEND ON MEETUP TO KEEP YOU INFORMED.


A Sunday afternoon or Wednesday Evening, a beverage of your choice, a few snacks, a fantastic piece of playwriting, and a group of avid VOICE ACTORS who've had fun reading well over 300 plays since 2010! What could be better?

Check out our Play List that we have already read HERE. Our play readings

Below is an extensive description of this group and its rules.

EastBay PlayReaders is a group for actors and experienced readers who are theater lovers and would like the social experience of group reading and performing, script in hand or device. The group is open to those who will commit to reading and understanding the play and being prepared with a part. This is not a drop-in group, and requires EMAIL communication with the Play Reading Organizer in order to be cast in a role. Previous play reading experience is highly desired. In Person readings are in Alameda, CA. But we are excited that ZOOM has brought us readers from all over, who can cope with time zone changes.

Our readings are prepared, scheduled and cast. If you are looking for a "maybe I will stop by" group, please pass on us. Members who become cast and are no-shows, with no warning or explanation to the Organizer, will be removed from the group.

Typically an IN PERSON play reading will involve (1) social time to get to know each other (2) reading of the play(3) eating and drinking (4) discussion of the play (5) occasional post-reading social games. Our event is a potluck with everyone pitching in to supply drinks and snacks. Special needs folks should bring their own snacks.

The play reading can include both readers and audience, if extra people want to sit in and listen.


CASTING: Plays are selected and pre-cast by the organizer, and scripts and cast lists are distributed at least a few days to one week in advance, so parts can be prepared. The aim of casting is to produce the best overall reading of the play, to ensure a positive group experience. In a group with different levels of voice acting expertise, senior level voice actors or readers will normally get the heaviest roles. This serves to produce an exceptional reading, and also sets an example for others to improve their VOICE ACTING delivery. 

Casting typically follows gender and character descriptions from the play itself, although exceptions are made. Requests to be cast in a particular role are usually welcomed and granted unless a role has already been cast.

Any issues with casting should be taken up privately with the organizer.
