Vintage Women of the South Bay
San Jose, CA
This is an amazing group of women that has been evolving and growing since 2009. Some of us are empty nesters and are asking ourselves, “Now what?” Some of us are between jobs or newly retired and are wondering what to do with our free time. Some of us are new to the area and want to grow our circle of friends. And some of us just want to leave the menfolk at home and enjoy a girls’ day out.
For me, most of my friends and family had moved away. Someone mentioned meet up and this is the first group I found, and so happy I did. I met women my own age right in my own backyard that I may never have met on my own. Life is so much richer with friends and a strong sense of community.
We enjoy activities such as movies, Bunco, chat nights, plays, golf, brunches, art festivals, day trips and morning walks. And if there is something you would like to do but don’t see it here, you are welcome to host your own activity.
Join us if you like to laugh and try new things.
PLEASE NOTE: You must be female and over 50 to join. A profile photo of yourself is required when joining Vintage Women so we can recognize you at events.
Mountain View Downtowners 20-30s
Mountain View, CA
New to Mountain View? Been here awhile but still want to meet people?
All are welcome, but closer proximity tends to make for better connections so this will be a group for those who want to hangout downtown MV and expand social circles.
This is a casual, weekly group to hangout, meet new people, and find some fun. Break off for awhile and rejoin. This is a no obligation / no pressure to stay longer than you want to type group.
For each week… a day, time, location and topic will be posted. Sounds good? See you there.
Laps, dinner & drinks
Relax & games near city hall
Picnic at the park
Tech side projects mixer
Crafts and drafts (beer that is)
BTW: Of course it’s awkward to meet new people and not all connections will make for perfect friends but let’s just see how it goes.
Also in order to get more diverse crowds I’ll try using max attendees and add folks via waitlists. We shall see how that works out.
1st priority - goes to getting an even number of men to women. (Send me a message if you want to clarify what you identify as.)
2nd priority - goes to regular/ repeat attendees
3rd priority - goes to those who live in Mountain View.
* I’ll try to balance the waitlists accordingly but it’s a tricky task so apologies if you are waitlisted too often. (Send me a message if this occurs too much)

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:
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.
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.

Salt and Pepper -Palo Alto Couples Aged 50+
Palo Alto, CA
Salt and Pepper is a group of welcoming, interested adults, aged 50 plus, looking to make friends and enjoy activities with other couples. Gatherings include a mix of new and familiar faces, with an opportunity to make long lasting friends. Our diverse group appreciates all walks of life, celebrating our differences while exploring common interests. We support each other and encourage healthy life transitions.
Membership in this group is about getting to know other couples and so we ask that members attend, as a couple, at least one activity each month. To maintain the dynamics of the group attendance without partner or bringing extra friends should be the exception. (Our midweek hikes are an exception and "singles" welcome)
Past events include hikes, museums, restaurants, theatre, music, Improv shows, garden tours, ranger talks, high teas, potlucks, art festivals, dancing, beachwalks, wine tastings, boardgame night, and more. We are currently scheduling events outdoors to keep risk of illness lower. There are a number of events scheduled so jump right in and RSVP for something soon!
Let's keep this safe for everyone. Please attend events if you have been vaccinated and not been with someone symptomatic or exposed to COVID. Be prepared to show proof of vaccination.

Building community and friendships by enjoying all our neighborhood has to offer: park days, walks through the panhandle, drinks, food, and more!

San Jose Mid-Week Hikers Group
San Jose, CA
This group was started to accommodate hikers and outdoor enthusiasts who want to go on organized hikes during the week. Whether due to mid-week days off, flexible work schedules, retirement or kids in school, if you have days/time off during the week and want to get out and enjoy the wonderful hiking we have in the bay area, this is the group for you. All hiking levels are encouraged to join and we welcome members of other hiking groups in the area as well. We welcome feedback and suggested hikes from members and we keep our organized hikes to fairly small groups (less than 20). We try to schedule several hikes each week. Our Hiking adventures tend to be 4-10 miles in length with varied levels of elevation change. They last between two and six hours normally. Please do not be discouraged if you are new to hiking. You can start by picking a shorter, easier outing.
UX Wizards Bay Area
San Jose, CA
This is a group for anyone interested in learning more about UX. I started this group to meet other UX enthusiasts in my area, and because I felt that most of the UX meetups I'd been attending were in San Francisco, and I was meeting more UX designers from San Jose who had also made the journey north!
Things I'm hoping to accomplish by starting this group:
- Opportunity for peer review (ie: bring your portfolios or work and we'll take time giving you honest feedback) <br>
- Opportunity for mentorship (maybe you are a mentor! maybe you are a mentee!)
- Place where you can bounce ideas around
- Place for potentially finding employers/talent
Sunnyvale Hiking and Camping
Let's have fun hiking Bay Area Wide - both during the week (around 6 pm) and on weekends. We hike in the South Bay (San Jose/Santa Cruz), East Bay (Fremont, Newark, Oakland), Peninsula (Palo Alto - Redwood City - Woodside) and San Francisco.
We're adding (almost) monthly Camping Trips
We're open to suggestions - any time - of hikes and opened campgrounds.
People who come to our events are friendly and usually everyone who comes makes new friends inside and outside our group.
You need to post an actual photo of yourself showing your face, including your eyes. Failure to post a photo of yourself will result in a declining of your membership into our group.
We STRONGLY encourage you, if you have to, to cancel your reservation on Meetup 48 hours prior to the event.
