What we're about

The founder decided that it is time to start a group with people who have relocated to this area just like her. She has been here for over 20 years and still feels like a tourist. She thought why not get together to chat, sip, travel and eat because she knew shes not the only person who is willing to meet new people who have relocated to this area.

At a minimum we will be less isolated, have some fun, make new friends and perhaps you will find your next true love, please though be ladies and gentlemen, creepiness will not be tolerated

Don't send instant messages through meetup to folks you haven't met. Propositions to meet outside of meetup events to a virtual stranger is creepy. Of course a relevant message to or from an event host regarding an upcoming meetup is different.

Thank you for that consideration.

Players there are plenty of other sites if you just want to hook up one on one, don't make folks feel unsafe here. If you have done a meetup with someone and want to send them a good to see/meet you followup to me that is totally different, but if they do not reply or aren't interested don't be a "meetup creep". Of course it's great if folks "meetup" and some magic develops. So please remember while it is fun to "meetup", this group is not "hookup.com" or "match.com". Not everyone here is single or seeking a romance.

Remember if you receive an unsolicited message or suspicious or inappropriate behavior, please report and forward it to me, it is grounds for dismissal of violating party. They probably are spamming others here and in other groups.

Negative or adversarial comments, posts or actions will result in removal and banning of the offending party.
