Become an organiser

Organising an event isn’t difficult, and, contrary to what you may think, doesn't involve much time and effort - and you’ll have the support of the Organisers. And it gets even easier with experience.

Also, you could simply repeat a past event, or copy one from another Meetup group. Indeed, if you fail to get a place on an event, with this group or another, you could just organise a repeat of it, with a different time or location. Some events are so over-subscribed that a repeat will likely get attendees even if it's repeated only a week later.

Remember that outdoorsy events can be any kind of outdoorsy activity, of any level of ability, including within Edinburgh, such as a walk up Arthur’s Seat or Blackford Hill.

So, if there's an outdoorsy - or non-outdoorsy - activity that you'd like to do with this group, but it isn't upcoming - or it is, but the event's full - just organise it, via the 'SUGGEST A NEW MEETUP' link on the Home page. Once your suggested event is accepted by an Organiser, you'll become the Event Host for the event, although you can also assign other members to be joint Event Hosts.

Of course, as an Event Host, you've a responsibility to do sufficient research into the practicalities of the event. However, neither Event Hosts, nor Organisers, have a special responsibility for safety - event attendees should regard events as being just a group of people engaging in an outdoorsy - or non-outdoorsy - activity together, with attendees ultimately being responsible for their own safety, while also looking-out for each other.

If you're unwilling, or unable, to be an Event Host, but there's a particular event, or type of event, that you wish was being offered, or that you at least think might be of interest to others, then please request/suggest it via either the 'SUGGEST A NEW MEETUP' link or the 'Discussions' section.
