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 :)

Social Sisterhood

Morgan Hill, CA

Social Sisterhood

Welcome to Social Sisterhood.


Our Mission


Our mission is to provide a place for women to meet for fun and friendship at public events in a collaborative atmosphere. Currently, our active members are mostly over 55.


I believe a social group is an alliance of the members. It can thrive only through participation and I will do my best to make participation as easy as possible. As empowered members, you will be able to help form a varied line up of events that interest you. Participation will inform hosts as to what interests the membership so that we can hone the group to our needs.


Membership Requirements


In keeping with our mission, please


  • tell us your true name, 
  • upload a photo of yourself


If you are unwilling to meet these requirements, please do not request membership. If you don't know how to upload a photo, an organizer will help you.


Covid Rules of the Road


We are now in a new phase of the Covid-19 pandemic. Some of us have been vaccinated; some of us plan to be vaccinated; and some of us will elect not to be vaccinated. Each of us has to determine our personal level of risk when it comes to socializing again. The purpose of this email is to openly communicate the "rules of the road" for hosting and attending events in this group.


As you have no doubt noticed, hosts of the four events posted this year have required attendees to be fully vaccinated plus two weeks to minimize risks of getting/spreading Covid-19 to attendees. It has been a relief to get together reasonably safely after a year of social isolation. Those of you that plan to be vaccinated will be able to join events like these soon. However, what about members who are choosing not to get vaccinated?


I have been thinking about this since I posted that first event for fully vaccinated members only. It saddens me to exclude anyone from an event but I feel a responsibility to my own health, to my family, and to the membership. I think the only solution that respects members' personal risk tolerance is to encourage members to host events where vaccination is not required. Members, vaccinated or not, can choose to attend based on their own sensibilities. If I may use myself as an example, I could see myself hosting or attending an outdoor event with my unvaccinated friends depending on the circumstances. While I might be willing to host a fully open event, the "heavy lifting" on posting events where vaccination is not required will likely fall to the unvaccinated members.


This still is not ideal but I have hope that it is a temporary situation as the healthcare system finds solutions for living in the presence of Covid-19 and its emerging variants. Until then, I ask hosts to post events that are clearly marked for attendee vaccination status. If you are hosting a vaccinated-only event, please formally confirm the vaccination status of members whose vaccination status is unknown to you.


Participation


By RSVP'ing "Yes" to an event, your attendance is basic courtesy barring an emergency. Letting your host know if something comes up at the last minute will surely be appreciated. Although there are times it can't be avoided, repeatedly dropping off an event on the day of the event for which you've signed up doesn't work for hosts and other members counting on you to help make events successful.
As with all social organizations, we are interdependent. Therefore, the usual courtesies apply. Further, this is a social group – it is not a business networking group or an opportunity to promote your business or sell goods or services to the membership.
** As of this edit, we are experiencing members reserving a spot and dropping out within 24 hours of the actual event. This is unfair to members on the wait list. In the future, members with a history of being an unreliable attendee will be moved to the wait list if one forms for the event. After all other members are moved up, you will be moved to the attending list if there is room. If there is a financial obligation associated with the event, payment will be required in advance. You may pay the host or the organizer by check or using a payment processor of the host's/organizer's choice in order to reserve a spot. If a payment processor is used, the bill will include processing fees.



Guests 

Women guests are welcome to attend events with a member. If not stated explicitly, events are for women only.
Periodically, an organizer may schedule a family event where spouses or children are included in which case feel free to bring them making sure to indicate the number of "guests" that will accompany you.



Dues


Dues will be billed after a 30-day trial for new members at the rate of $1.00 per month in a single non-refundable annual payment of $12. If you pay the organizer by cash or check, the cost is $10.60 as there is no processing fee taken by Meetup. I will pay the Meetup fees out of the dues collected. Any remaining money will be used for the benefit of the members. The accounting will be made available to the membership when dues collection begins.

So there you have it. Join us. Once you join, you can start posting events you want to share with others and go to others' events. I hope to see you soon!

50's Plus Active Singles Community

San Luis Obispo, CA

50's Plus Active Singles Community

This group is dedicated to those individuals who are single 50 years old or older. This is not a dating site.  We are a community group and relationships have developed organically via this group. Some of these relationships turned into long-term relationships or marriage.  It is important to us that they remain part of our family and are able to continue to attend our events. Our basic goal is to join forces to get out and about, meet new friends, attend social events, share our lives and hopefully make an impact on our community. The concept that created this group was based on those individuals who are alone wanting to get out and spend time with others without worrying about the strain or craziness of dating, courting or seeking a long-term mate. We want to get out and have fun, make new friends, be active and just be ourselves. Also, we are NOT to discuss politics; this group is not the place.

Our vision is to create a network of people who care about people. We are positive adults who love to socialize, interact and impact others and are seeking like-minded individuals who want to get out and have some fun support the needs of one another. If you have any ideas for an event, the organizers welcome them.  

We do ask for a small contribution of $5.00 annually, this can be paid online or to one of the organizers ( Sharon or Jim) by check or cash within your 30-day trial period. These dues cover the cost of the website, support our team and our members for special events and at times funds for individual needs.

Be sure to check out our "Pages" for specific information about our group!

Well-Seasoned Women

Sacramento, CA

Well-Seasoned Women

We are a group of dynamic retired or semi-retired women over 50. We live in the greater Sacramento area and are ready to star in the next stage of life.  Our meetups take place from Lodi to Rocklin, from Davis to Placerville, and every place in between. We are looking for women with positive attitudes willing to contribute to their own growth and success as well as that of the community.  We are interested in maintaining strong minds and bodies. We believe in moving forward and giving back.  Most of our activities take place weekdays, and some will include spouses and SO's.  Please note that we strive to maintain a “drama-free” environment.

We are always looking for help, so email the leadership team if you are interested in hosting events.  Due to size and liability issues we do not permit members to bring guests to events held in private homes or to events limited in number.

EXPECTATIONS:

·  Annual Membership Dues Required: $5. Dues payment required within 30 days of joining. Meetup charges for the right to post our events. We use these funds to pay fees, provide paper products at our potluck events, and host an annual anniversary party. No refunds are offered.

   Many of our events require payment in advance. It is not required but is strongly encouraged and preferred that payment be made using electronic means, such as PayPal, PopMoney, etc.

·  All members must post a profile picture (head shot) of themselves and have a valid email address within 30 days of joining. A picture of you must be posted in order to attend your first event with this group. We are often opening our homes to our members. This is a safety issue for those who do so and for those who attend. Please let us know if there is an issue of personal security that prevents you from doing this. We are happy to accommodate.

·  Members often would like to share rides to events. It is up to the person(s) looking for a ride to obtain one. We are unable to offer carpools to our members due to liability issues. When securing a ride with another member, it is the rider’s responsibility to require adequate car insurance, safety of vehicle, and competence of driver. Any monetary contributions are to be arranged between the driver and the rider. WSW and its members assume no responsibility in the event of accident or injury.

Attendance:  Any individual with (3) “no shows” (includes canceling the morning of the event) or a history of “late bail outs” (canceling the day/night before the event) will have future RSVP’s removed and be placed on a waitlist to allow members in good standing to attend. Those who get moved from the waitlist the morning of an event and do not attend will also be charged a “no show.” Those with 5 late bail outs will be removed from the group. We have a firm 10-minute wait rule for events. Those who RSVP and are late may be left behind. It is your responsibility to take care and manage your own RSVPs – including your place on a waitlist. This means changing your RSVP to “no” when you are unable to attend an event so that those on the waitlist above you are able to move up.

·  The organizers reserve the right to remove anyone from the group who violates these rules, does not fit the parameters of our group, has not paid dues, has a negative impact on the group, or endangers the safety and security of our members. This is a group for retired women and not a dating site.

·  This group does not support promotion of any kind, including marketing, products, or people. Any postings or actions of this type will be removed along with the person who posted it.

·  We love our pets – at home! Due to allergies and liability issues, please do not bring pets to events. Please know that many of our members who host events in their homes do have pets. It is your responsibility to inquire if you have issues with pets.

·  Don’t forget to check out our Facebook Group page!

·  If you owe dues and haven't visited our group in over 6 months, you will be automatically removed from the group.

By joining Well-Seasoned Women, you automatically agree to the terms of this release. This agreement releases Well-Seasoned Women (WSW) from all liability relating to injuries that may occur {during activity, on location, at members’ homes, etc. By joining, I agree to hold WSW and all associated parties entirely free from any liability, including financial responsibility for injuries incurred, regardless of whether injuries are caused by negligence.

I also acknowledge the risks involved in scheduled meetups. These include but are not limited to hiking, wine tasting, volunteering, cooking, swimming, working out. I swear that I am participating voluntarily, and that all risks have been made clear to me. Additionally, I do not have any conditions that will increase my likelihood of experiencing injuries while engaging in this activity.

By joining this group, I forfeit all right to bring a suit against Well-Seasoned Women for any reason. I will also make every effort to obey safety precautions as listed in writing and as explained to me verbally. I will ask for clarification, if needed.

If you owe dues and haven't visited the group on the web for over 6 months, you will be automatically dropped from the group. However, you may reapply to join.
