SWING CARMEL/MONTEREY-Savvy Women In Need of Golf

Monterey, CA

SWING CARMEL/MONTEREY-Savvy Women In Need of Golf

SWING (Savvy Women in Need of Golf) is a traveling ladies golf league that firmly believes in fashionably growing the game one happy hour at a time and that golf doesn’t have to be serious to be seriously addicting.

MISSION: Our mission is to grow the female presence in the game of golf. Our events create a welcoming atmosphere for women of all ages to learn the game and find a home on the course where other ladies leagues have not been a fit.  We focus on building relationships while enjoying the game in a non-competitive, relaxed atmosphere. The relationships formed on the golf course and the skills learned allow women to feel comfortable playing socially and for networking and business.

SWING CODE OF CONDUCT: 

1) Be open to playing with other SWING members. Introduce yourself to new faces at events and make everyone feel welcome.

2) Be supportive of participants if they are not your level. Feel free to provide advice, if prompted. You can learn so much from your golf partners.

3) Do not be overly competitive. This league is about fun and not about your score or winning. There are plenty of competitive leagues if you want that atmosphere.

4) Exercise SWING etiquette when playing. While we like to have fun at all times, do not walk in someone’s line while putting or talk during someone’s tee-off.

5) Abide by the rules of pace of play, no more than 10-15 minutes per hole.

6) SWING reserves the right to remove participants from events and future participation if they do not follow SWING rules of conduct.

EVENTS/RSVP'S:

There will be one 9 hole tournament per month and one non-hosted clinic for ladies to attend. You can always utilize our message board if you are looking for a foursome during non-event times.

All of our events have some theme so please do you best and show your SWING spirit and DRESS UP. This creates a feeling of camaraderie on the course and makes us easily identifiable :).

Participants and guests for 9 hole tournaments will pay per event in ADVANCE effective 1/1/16. You can RSVP on meetup.com, but you will NOT have reserved your spot until you have purchased a ticket on the Eventbrite/Paypal link that will be included on the event announcement. 

Clinics only require an RSVP on the meetup page, and you will pay the course directly. 

SWING SWAG:

Let's be honest, looking the part is half the battle. Find all of your SWING Swag at our SWING store here: http://www.golf4her.com/SWING-Store-s/3735.htm.

Orange County 9/11 Truth

Santa Ana, CA

Orange County 9/11 Truth

Can you identify a major, vexing, obvious, easy to solve problem in your society or community? Do you view its resolution as straightforward and highly beneficial? Are you ever amazed at the roadblocks you face as you defend your position?

  • Your arguments simple and plain, aren’t they?
  • Your opponents don’t get it and you often wonder why, don’t you?
  • Your opponents come up with arguments so poor that you can immediately dismiss them, right?
  • Also, you would be willing to change your mind if you encountered a compelling reason to do so, wouldn’t you?

Would you now care to go through your difficulties with institutions, especially governmental ones?

  • They could be much more helpful, couldn’t they?
  • Some even appear to be defending the wrong side of the issue, peddling invalid arguments from a bully pulpit.
  • Even elected officials and political candidates friendly to your side will soft-peddle the issue for personal reasons—like fear of the voters—rather than courageously educating the public. They may even urge you to drum up grassroots support before they dare come out of their closet—flattering your ego and assigning you another burden .

Let us assume, for a moment, that these institutions did their job, boldly working to serve the public. Evidently, they promptly would:

  • notice that this issue produces emotional conflicts and resentment among many people
  • perceive this situation as a problem
  • add it to their to-do list
  • let the public know that they are aware of the conflict
  • make plans to work on it

As they would get to it, they would tackle the controversy:

  • They would invite the public to formulate their grievances.
  • As you would personally respond, they would:
    • welcome your comments
    • thank you for them
    • prod you with some clarification questions
    • ask you for the leaders or experts you would trust regarding this matter
    • promise to contact them should enough people recognize their leadership and expertise like you do
  • They would compile and summarize the information they would get, from all sides of the wedge issue.
  • They would contact leaders and experts in all relevant fields.
  • They would look for some solution that would satisfy most people.
  • The result, from your perspective, would probably be favorable : they would agree with you or surprise you with some original idea that would convince you to alter your position.
  • In the worst case, they would persuade your friends but not you, leaving you in the uncomfortable position of being “right and isolated."
  • Even in this unfavorable case, considering that there are very few people in your situation, they may do you some favor to compensate for your legitimate discomfort.

Evidently, governments and other institutions do not deal with your most vexing political problem in this fashion. Why would that be?

  • Could they be ignorant? Have they not noticed the controversy? In view of your activism, it is unlikely.
  • Could they be incapable of dealing with the problem? Yet, as we just observed, it is not difficult.
  • Could they be aware of the problem but unwilling to confront it? This is a serious accusation , but in light of the above, it would be an error to summarily discard its possibility.

If they indeed understood the problem but had no will to solve it, would it be possible to prove it?

  • Could they perhaps knowingly ignore other issues too?
  • Would they be that corrupt?
  • Could this be demonstrated?

Would there be one issue that would expose their hypocrisy in a way that would exclude lack of knowledge or resources and that would be straightforward for people to understand? This may be key to resolving your problem.

It so happens that there is such an issue. You now stand in front of its proverbial rabbit hole . Once you have explored it, the problem that brought you here will appear to you as child’s play and you will realize why you naïvely thought that what has caused you so much grief would have been institutional indifference or opposition. It is less a matter of random incompetence or negligence than of intelligent design.

Would you find ten minutes to probe further? Be 9/11 Truth’s guest!

Love,

Dan Noël

San Francisco Style: Modeling & Beauty

South San Francisco, CA

San Francisco Style: Modeling & Beauty

NOTICE: On January 1, 2014, the core focus of this group will change from general fashion to fashion modeling and beauty.

Welcome to San Francisco Style!

AJ Patell's "San Francisco Style" Meetup Group is the place to be to get together, discuss, share and collaborate on the topics, trends and styles of the local modeling and beauty scene in the San Francisco Bay Area. Model your outfits, styles and looks. Get constructive feedback. Modeling, make-up, hair and nail workshops, portraits and more. Lots of good times to be planned, so join up and let's style!

Regarding EVENTS and LOCATIONS:

I want to post a range of meets all over the Bay. This is ensure that everyone in the Bay who joins has decent access to come meet and hangout as much as possible.

The easiest meets to organize will be quick and easy hangouts to get to know each, other, have a drink, coffee, etc and just talk style. These will be setup at open, public locations such as nice bars, coffee shops, etc which can accommodate our group, adjusted we grow in size.

As we go along, I will be organizing special meets to do 'shop'. Maybe makeup workshops, hair workshops, modeling workshops, fashion swaps, etc. These will be in private venues and may require to small fees to compensate the venue or presenter.

If you have a suggestion for a meet/location, please don't hesitate to contact me and we can try to set it up.

If you or a third-party wants to invite us to a special event, please get all pertinent information, and not just the generic plug. Have them include some type of value perk for our members.

 

GENERAL RULES & GUIDELINES for ALL MEMBERS:

1. This group is not setup as a marketing bank, or for lead generation. At no times under the activities of this group should anyone shamelessly peddle their services unless it is appropriate to do so, and should be done after the meetup has concluded, on your own time. Contacting members of this group through email off the meetup group site to shamelessly peddle your services is also not allowed. Please respect all members and their privacy in this group. If someone requires your services, allow them to contact you on their own volition after getting to know you at our meetups.

2. This group is setup purely to improve our skills, learn from others, share with others, teach others, make quality friendships, and to have fun with style and how it can make us all feel inside and out. Respect each other and respect all styles! And remember, it's all Bay Area love! Enjoy, and thanks again for joining!

 

Much love,

AJ
