Central Coast Women's Group

Morro Bay, CA

Central Coast Women's Group

Hi Joy Seekers!!

I LOVE life, adventures, eating out, book club, travel, hiking, and exploring this fabulous planet of ours! I just moved to Morro Bay after being in Austin, Texas for the past 15 years--I would like to share exploring the coast with some gal pals---I want day trips to Carmel, wine outings to Paso Robles, Kayaking on the Bay, Movies on Fridays, Hiking, Whale Cruises, Day trips to Missions, my list can keep going--if you have been living here for a while, or are new to the coast, but want to get out of the house and explore with me, then join me! I've always believed my group is for a place that we are just looking for a soft place to land, and to know we are all seeking joy--Please, come join me! This central coast has SOOOO many adventures a head of us!!!

Meetup charges me, the organizer, $22 a MONTH--I charge members $7.49 a YEAR to help break even --I do a lot of planning to keep us busy and enjoying the coast--I also make a huge effort to plan events so those of us on a budget can go out and enjoy this lovely place and not spend too much--you can pay by meetup system or cash--either way is easy--

you can pay in cash at your first event

We stay busy--If your looking to meet some great ladies, and be out of the house more,this is the group for you--

Please remember to update your rsvp's----as I make reservations and plan, and if gals don't change their rsvp, it makes it DIFFICULT to plan--thanks so much, let's explore!!!!

Girls Rule!!!! For Women ages 50+

San Mateo, CA

Girls Rule!!!!  For Women ages 50+

SAFETY FIRST!!! This group is for ONLY FULLY vaccinated peninsula 50+ women.


Hello Girls!!!! Get out of your pajamas and let's have some fun!!!! It is time to get out and mingle. You can do it!!!! Some of us have gotten a little too comfortable staying home this past year.

This Meetup is for women ONLY, ages 50+ who live on the PENINSULA. Please read the WHOLE description BEFORE you join this group.

<br>

The following are just some of the events that might be happening soon. If you have any suggestions or hear of a community event that you might think will be fun, please let me know. Also, if you wish to ever host, please let me know.

<br>

Some of the events might be:

Movies

Happy Hour

Game Night

Monthly Book Club

Mah Jongg - American (unless someone can teach me another version)

Bingo

Trying new restaurants

Bunco

Cooking Classes

Easy Hiking

Biking

Outdoor Concerts

Bocce Ball

Male Strip Clubs (okay, that was a joke)

And anything else that might sound fun to you.

<br>

Running a Meetup group is not free. I will be charging an annual $12.00 Non-refundable Membership fee. The Membership fee will be due and collected at your FIRST event (unless I get Venmo or PayPal setup) and then it will be good for one year from the date you paid. This fee is NON-REFUNDABLE (no matter what), meaning, you will not get reimbursed for whatever reason, including this Meetup group gets delete or cancelled for whatever reason and/or it you get delete from the group. If you join this group and do not attend any events within the first 4 months of signing up, you will be removed from the group. Even though you have paid Membership fees, you are still responsible for showing up at the events that you RSVP for. If you decide to rsvp and you don't show up (no show) or cancel at the last minute, meaning less than 24 hrs, you will be deleted from this group. Please be considerate.

<br>

If an event is hosted at a private house, the owner of the house is in charge of their guest list. They can pick and choose who they would like to attend. This might mean that a private home event might automatically go into a waitlist and the owner of the home will be able to create the guest list themselves (meaning, they can pick and choose who comes into their home).

<br>

IMPORTANT: I am not liable or responsible for you in anyway, shape or form for any event that you attend within this group. You are responsible for yourself at any events posted in this group. When you RSVP for an event, you are in agreeance to this information. No outside guests allowed at events posted on this Meetup. You MUST have a clear picture posted to join this group.

Mensa / San Francisco Region

San Francisco, CA

Mensa / San Francisco Region

This MeetUp provides a dynamic way for members of San Francisco Regional Mensa to get the latest on Mensa events in the Bay Area and to more easily host their own Mensa events. The idea is that by eliminating the very long lead time now necessary to post things to the Intelligencer, we will have more, and more varied, events on the calendar.

You MUST be a *current* member of Mensa to join this group. When you click "Join Us" (above right), please include your full name AND your Mensa membership number so that we can verify your membership.

If you'd like to become a member of Mensa, please go to the SFRM website, http://www.sfmensa.org/, to find out how to qualify, or to locate a testing session near you. In the meantime, you can join us in our San Francisco Mensa Friends Meetup where we have events open to non-members.

Organizers and Event Organizers can post events directly to our Meetup site, but Meetup no longer allows non-organizers to post events directly.

If you are a member of our Meetup group, but not an organizer, and you wish to have an event posted, click on "Suggest a new Meetup", or send an email to membership@sfmensa.org.  Be sure and be specific as to what the event is, including a full description, date, time, and location.  If you'd like the event to recur on a regular basis (e.g., 3rd Wednesday of the month), be sure to specify that as well.

We hope to see you soon!

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.

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.

Explore The Bay (ETB) - Social Group

Mountain View, CA

Explore The Bay (ETB) - Social Group

Meet some new friends while we Explore the Bay together. This group is about providing value to the community, having fun, exploring new places, and meeting new friends. We are a social group of singles and couples who enjoy exploring the wonderful Bay Area of Northern California. In fact, according to the Meetup.com algorithm, we are the most active "Social" group in the Bay Area (pre-pandemic). Join us as we explore cool bars, night clubs, restaurants, museums, vineyards, hiking adventures, house parties, etc. We will also offer some community volunteer opportunities. We will LEVERAGE our group to receive discounts, extended happy hours, and other great perks that an individual cannot get. Note that we move the party all around the Bay Area to keep our events interesting and to continually attract new quality citizens. Join and you will meet some quality, new friends. WHO CAN JOIN Adults 21 and over. Our members range in age from 21 to 80+. Single people and people in relationships are in this group. This is not a singles group. If you don't feel comfortable about being around people from different age groups, then you either are just trying to hook up or you haven't grown up yet. Note that we don't and won't tolerate any discrimination with respect to race, religion, age, sex, or gender. A profile with a name or name abbreviation is required. Web site names or phrases cannot be used in lieu of a name. REQUIREMENTS TO JOIN THE GROUP Personal photo required where the person is recognizable. Action shots, group photos, and topless pics are not permitted. Must be an adult age 21 and over. Members who are admitted must read these rules including the disclaimer at the end which states members are forfeiting some rights. EXPECTED MEMBER CONDUCT 1.   Members are expected to read the event description and any updates posted by the Event Organizer before attending an event. This helps eliminate the need to ask questions that have already been explicitly stated in the event description. It also keeps expectations in alignment with the event format/structure. 2.   In order to receive important emails sent from Event Organizers, make sure that you have the following setting options enabled for this group: ‘Announcement about a specific Meetup’ and ‘Announcement to members about the group’. 3.   When interested in attending an event, each member will need to secure a spot online. Note that if they later decide that they want to bring a guest to an event that they already signed up for that is full, they will either need to lose their spot and go to the end of the waiting list or they will need to encourage their guest to join the group and add their name to the waiting list. Please do not contact the event organizer and ask to add a guest. This creates too much work. 4.   We encourage active membership. Note that we sometimes remove inactive members from the group, especially organizers from other groups that don't attend any of our events. GROUNDS FOR REMOVAL FROM THE GROUP 1.   Any behavior that causes a problem for another member of the group. Not limited, but including the following: being touchy, overly aggressive, creepy, excessive gossiping or any behavior that causes bad drama. 2.   Excessive no shows in relation to the number of events attended. Note that we take attendance at most events. Members are responsible to monitor their own registration status. When you are on a waiting list, don't assume that you won't get into an event. If a member makes other plans, they are responsible to change their registration from either the attending list or waiting list to the not attending list. 3.   Repeatedly bailing out of events on the day the event is scheduled. A high frequency of this behavior can lead to being removed from the group. Note that if you bail out the same day of an event, you will be marked as a "no show". 4.   Sending emails to members they have not met before for the purposes of dating. This isn't a singles group nor is it a dating website. 5.   Sending spam emails to members to promote a business, event, etc. without permission of the main organizer. 6.   Freeloaders who take advantage of the generosity of others are removed from the group. This includes attending an event at a venue and not purchasing anything. Note that venues staff up to support our events. If the revenue isn't high, then they lose money and then organizers have to volunteer more time to find a new venue. 7.   Posting comments on an event page or using the "Start a conversation..." functionality to promote a business, event, etc. without permission of the main organizer. 8.   Not having a picture where they are recognizable. Members who are not recognizable in their ETB profile picture are subject to removal. 9.   Any behaving in a manner that suggests a sense of entitlement such as requesting organizers to volunteer too much of their valuable time. 10.   Excessive posting of comments or negative comments on event wall-space. This requires the Event Host to volunteer additional time. It also causes members to waste time looking for important event updates. Note that there is no need for members to post why they will not be attending an event. 11. Texting or calling the Organizer for any reason other than trying to find the group during a meetup event. Note that the number is provided as a courtesy to facilitate finding the group only. No exceptions. 12. Showing up to an event without securing a spot (crashing). Note that members are not allowed to bring a guest to an event unless they secure a spot online for their guest. Some events are limited to members only. 13. Bringing children or pets to an event unless the event explicitly states that they are permitted. 14. Any members that copy the content of this group including the charter of the group (on this page), event descriptions, event updates, our events, etc. for the benefit of organizing events with other groups will be removed from the group. Plagiarism will not be tolerated.
