Western Slope Adventurers

65 Adventurers 8 events

My wife, Mary Hertert, and I started www.WesternSlopeAdventuers.org as a meetup.com group when we moved from Anchorage, Alaska (where we had started the www.AnchorageAdventurers.org in 2007) in 2011. 
Meetup.com was purchased by a large company, We Work,  last year and it's service has been suffering since that time.
Another similar platform has shown up on the web, called Down to Meet. It's so new that it says 'beta testing' on its website.
However, in WSA, we are moving a bunch of the events that we are posting over there to see how it works out. In addition to keeping an eye on WSA on meetup.com, you might want to take a look at: https://www.downtomeet.com/org/Western-Slope-Adventurers/home.
Signing up on one or the other, we hope to see you outdoors real soon.

PDX Outdoorsy Retired Women

17 Outdoorsy Womens 2 events

The emphasis of this group is on fitness, friendship and an appreciation for the natural world. Activities include short (generally 5 miles or less) walks, hikes, kayaking, snowshoeing, etc. Bring your camera, or just use your phone! 

A typical event might look like this: Meet at Latourell Falls trailhead in the gorge for a hike, with an optional side trip to Bridal Veil Falls. Or hike a section of the Banks-Vernonia Trail with lunch afterwards at the Blue Jay Cafe in Manning. Or kayaking (or stand up paddle boarding) at Scappoose Bay or Battle Ground Lake.

If our events sound like something you’d enjoy, and you would like to make new like-minded friends, this group may be for you!

Please provide a current, clear facial photo of yourself, as we often meet at remote trailheads and I need to know whom to expect.

***Please Read Before You Decide to Sign Up***
We generally meet on WEEKDAYS from mid-morning to early afternoon.

We prefer quality over quantity and seek friendly, engaged members. One of our goals is to create an atmosphere where members are familiar with each other and there is a sense of continuity in our events. In order to enable that, we have to keep our group size small and discrete. So if we see your profile has been inactive for 6 months, we will regretfully need to excuse you from the site.

DISCLAIMER: Joining events with PDX Outdoorsy Retired Women is entirely voluntary. Participants signing up for an event fully understand the risks, dangers, and hazards associated with any outdoor activity, and freely accept and fully assume all such risks, dangers and hazards, and further agree to release and discharge the Organizer and Event Hosts of PDX Outdoorsy Retired Women from and against any and all liability arising from your participation in the group activities. Each person who signs up for an event is responsible for her own safety. 

It is each participant's responsibility to ensure that she is sufficiently prepared, fit and healthy to participate in the event. Participants are expected to bring sufficient water, food, and appropriate clothing, as well as first aid and any other necessary equipment. The Organizer makes no warranties about the quality, safety, or supervision of these activities. By signing up for an event, you are accepting all the rules of the event. 

The Organizer and Event Hosts in this group are volunteers. Our Organizer and Event Hosts are neither professional guides nor do they have special training or qualifications. The sole role of the Organizer and Event Hosts is to organize the event. Think of them as friends hiking in a group with you. They are not responsible for your safety or actions or anyone else’s. They are not responsible for any incident during the event. They are not responsible for carpool arrangements to the events, or for incidents during carpools.
Thank you for taking the time to read.

Project Warm

14 Warm-Hearted Stitchers 5 events

This group is based in South East Mississauga.   We are a group of volunteer knitters and crocethers who make strips that are stitched to each other’s strips to create blankets which are then donated to shelters for those in need.
Strip dimensions - 4 feet long by at least 8 inches high (strips can be higher).
Strips must have straight edges to be able to be stitched to other strips.
Yarn is supplied to members.  Yarn supplied is expected to make strips or full sized blankets.  Full sized blankets must be a minimum of 5' 5" in height.
(If you wish to use your own supplied yarn to make blankets of different sizes, that is fine, but the groups yarn supply is minimal, hence the ‘restrictions’ to the 48” strips or blankets of only the 5’ 5” size).
Donations of yarn (even those small little balls you may have leftover from other projects) are always welcome.
At various times, this group may have initiatives for making winter wear (hats, scarfs, etc), donations of other crafted items, etc - please keep an eye on the site for these types of events, otherwise the groups main focus will be strips for blankets (or full sized blankets).  
(The group will not regularly be making kitty blankets as in the previous group - we are going to solely be focused on strips and blankets for the time being).
 
I AM TAKING THE SUMMER OFF FROM PROJECT WARM EVENTS - events/meetings will resume in September 2018.   
 
Please be sure to tie in all loose ends on your strips and/or blankets - it causes me a lot of extra work and wasted time to tie in loose ends.   
If you are making a full size blankets (5’ 5”), you can make them more narrow than 48”, but please do not go less than 40-42”.   
Thank you and I’m looking forward to working with you all making blankets and helping those in need.

Bangalore Introverts

8 Bangalore Introverts

I'm sure many of us Introverts remember being called out at some point of time or the other, "Why are you so quiet? What is wrong with you?"
There is nothing wrong with being an Introvert. This is a group for the Introverts of Bangalore. We're the people who believe that it is okay to be quiet, by yourself and enjoy solitary activities. However, introverts also love having a social life and deep discussions. This is a group where you won't be judged for being quiet.
**** What is this group about? ****
This is a group to do something new every week. We are not limited to doing only one kind of event in this group. We do fun stuff or timepass every meetup. It's a good way to let go of stress and meet more people.
Some of the activities that we do are:Play some group games (could be board games, or teaming-based, or oldies like catch-catch, chain-chain)Check out the latest blockbuster movie, or a popular play,Try out a unique new restaurant nearby,Bring your parents for an outing (So that they can also break free from their routine)Read a Novella and discuss it (it's less time consuming than a book club)Kite FlyingTree plantation activity (something good for the environment)MeditationRiddles/Brain/Puzzles TeasersAnd a whole lot more.Try out whatever suits your interests. If there's any kind of meet that you would like to see then do let me know.
It is highly recommended for new members to join the "Get to know you" meetup. If you haven't attended this meetup earlier then you should attend it once. This is scheduled once every month and it gives me a chance to know you, what you're expecting from the group. It's also a chance for you to meet other new members, and form new connections.

Calgary DoSomethingNew

6 DSNers 1 event

DoSomethingNew (or DSN) is a social group for adults of all ages in Calgary & the surrounding area.
Originally started on the MU platform, we've gained over 10,000 members in 11 years.
It's time for a change, though - even we need to do something NEW once in a while, so we're checking out DownToMeet to see if it can help us grow bigger & better!
Our goal is to provide opportunities to have fun group gatherings, with an emphasis on socializing & making friends.
As the name implies, we try to offer 'new' or 'interesting' or 'unique' things to do - while some may seem like standard activities (bowling, pub nights, museum walks), we often find truly one-off, funky & weird things to do - or we make 'em up!!
Regardless of your interests, there will usually be SOMETHING you find interesting to check out with us.
Stay tuned as the spring & summer approach, for fun things to do in & around Calgary.
Anyone can join!

Toronto Hiking Asylum

4 inmates 2 events

Welcome to the Toronto Hiking Asylum. This is a group for people who love hiking at an invigorating pace and who believe in supporting the associations that maintain the trail systems in Ontario. We organize carpool hikes at intermediate and advanced levels on the Bruce Trail, Ganaraska Wilderness Section, McCrae Lake, and other trails. We're also about snowshoeing, backpacking, trekking overseas, and other outdoor activities. 
Please note that our hikes tend to go at a quicker pace with fewer breaks than is typical of other hiking groups, our members are drawn to us because they like to pick up the pace and prefer longer distances and hillier terrain. If you prefer slower hikes or have difficulty on hills, this is definitely not the hiking group for you. 
Also note that we're very quickly reaching our capacity to get all our regular hikers out on weekly events. We're still adding members, but very sparingly, so don't be surprised if you stay on the pending list for a long period of time. In the meantime we suggest other outdoor groups such as the Toronto Bruce Trail Association, the Toronto Outdoor Club, and COWS.
Generally, our model is that drivers and passengers meet at a predetermined carpool location in Toronto, usually Sheppard West or Kipling station, and commute from there to the event. Unlike some other meetup groups, passengers are not required to make their own arrangements with drivers, rather, the event host takes responsibility for ensuring that there is the right balance between the number of passengers and the number of drivers willing to take passengers. Occasionally, "meet at event" can be accommodated. 
The Toronto Hiking Asylum supports the volunteer associations that maintain the various trails systems in Ontario, particularly the Bruce Trail Association and the Ganaraska Hiking Trail Association. All donations collected on an event go to the association that provides stewardship for that trail. Members who already have a current paid membership in the association are exempt from donating on that event, that's our way of encouraging members to support these associations.
