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 :)

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.

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!

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

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

Male Strip Clubs (okay, that was a joke)

And anything else that might sound fun to you.

<br>

There will be NO RSVP fee for any event. BUT, being a Meetup organizer 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, 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 have 3 no shows, you will be removed from the group on your 3rd no show. If you cancel at the last minute, meaning, within in a couple of hours before the meetup event starts or you message me after the meetup starts, you will be removed. Considerate people only please.

<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.

Lady Bugs On The Go!

Turlock, CA

Lady Bugs On The Go!

This is a Women's Group that is tired of living in the rut from day to day.....
A group who wants to come out and play and explore and learn all the valuable insights that we can share and learn from one another. ...

This is a group that wants to go go go and check all the boxes off on their bucket lists. ..(question #3)

What I want is a group that can come together and share. ..teach one another and learn from each other. ... for instance I don't know how to crochet and I've always wanted to learn...and maybe there are things you want to learn...??? (Question #1 &2)

Throw in an adventure or two and we have a dynamic group ....no I'm not going to skydive....(sorry....I'm not that adventuresome-ha ha)

In order to become a member you will have to answer 5 questions along with a current picture? And then I will contact you and we will meet ( I have found coffee to be the best)  so that you can meet me and I can meet you. Its very casual and low key--do not be nervous.  I want you to see that I am just as normal as you and having you know at least one person in my meetup (me) makes it easier for you to sign up and go to other events/activities with the group.  

 This is not a watch from the sidelines club--this is a participation club--I want to know you and you to know me and all of my members get to know you too.    

 I do not want a club with 100,  200 even 1,000 members that I do not know ....so having a large number of members is not the goal of this club....its learning, teaching, going, doing, helping and making lots and lots of friendships

To be active in the club you will have to go to 1 event/activity every 3 months (this is the minimum required events/activities to stay active in the club--but you can go to as many events/activities as you want)  That is only 4 events/activities a year to stay active.  And compared to a lot of other meetup groups this club is very very active with lots and lots of activities/events and variety.

If you become inactive; then you run the risk of being removed from the club......so just sign up for the events/activities that interest you--I do not expect you to go to all events/activities just the ones that interest you.  And if nothing interests you-then don't be shy-suggest one....

Also just as important if you sign up for an event/activity and cannot go---it is only a courtesy to message or text me that you will be unable to make it.  Failure to let me know that you are not coming for an event that you signed up is considered a no-show...... I usually send an email reminding you one to two days before any event/activity so there is no reason not to let me know you are not coming.   

Myself and others will be looking for you and wondering where you are. Also, some events require reservations and the businesses we have booked with are expecting a certain number of people. Plus no one likes to be stood up. 3 No Shows will result in termination from the club membership.

Dues are $10 for whatever month you decide to join the club...so if you join in August the dues will still be $10  for the remainder of the current year.  And then when January comes around again dues will be $10 for the whole year--Jan thru Dec. 

If this is an issue for you then you can wait to join in January and only pay $10 for the whole year.   I am in two other clubs (not meetup) and this is the way they do it...and its easier to keep tabs on the dues.....everyone pays $10 in January for the whole year. If you come in half way then you still pay the $10 for the remainder of the year.

 I will send you a friendly reminder that your dues are due.  Failure to pay the yearly $10 club dues means you will be automatically dropped from the club and no longer wish to be a member.

 The dues will be used to pay the $14.99 monthly fee that Meetup charges and any excess will go back into the club to be used on activities/events, get togethers, or supplies needed by the membership.  

When you have gone to 10 events/activities--you will be awarded a LadyBug pin.  Activities/ events are scheduled so that there are free events and paid events--you choose what you want to sign up for.

So I became the first LadyBug when I traveled to Niagara Falls by myself. (yes it was scary but my friend that I was planning on going with backed out--and at that time you lost your airline miles if you didn't use them in a year (Southwest Airlines)--so I bravely (and timidly) decided I was going to go even if it meant I had to do it alone. My first ever solo trip---(yikes)

I did not know a soul--but I called home every night so that my poor worried Mother could sleep at night knowing no one had accosted me----it was scary; but exciting at the same time.

Anyway I had walked over to the Canada side to visit the duty free shop. I had bought some items and was at the checkout when the cashier noticed a ladybug on my arm. I kinda jumped (anything with bug in it would have gotten a reaction out of me--ha ha) Oh no she reassured me--a ladybug is a sign of good luck.

Hmmmm so I gently took the ladybug on my arm to an outside area and let it fly fly fly away. (After I paid for my items of course)

I got lost numerous times; I got three tickets on the bridge (I got out of it because after I got the tickets mailed to me-- I explained that the bridge toll guy wouldn't tell me what I was doing wrong--just get moving...go go go---and I ended up not having to pay) and remember that Canada duty free shop--well I was a tourist (all by my lonely) taking pictures as I walked across the bridge toward the US side and all of a sudden here come 3 men wanting to confiscate my camera--I was jeopardizing security by taking pictures of the US bldg--what??? --so much for good luck from the lady bug on my arm--I thought they were going to throw me in jail.....????

10 days later when I returned home safely and in one piece--I remember falling backwards in my bed and thinking to myself--I made it-- and all by myself! That was a huge accomplishment for me--I had never gone on a vacation ever by myself before.

But I got to thinking that while I was touring Niagara Falls I was a Lady and I sure bugged the he$$ out of everyone I met--hence the name: LADYBUGS ON THE GO!!!!

Look forward to meeting you and helping you to create and accomplish your dreams.....

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.
