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.

56 Riders 4 events
The plan is to create fun, regular events for all aspects of Riding. We will be mainly based in and around the M25 but will also include regular touring trips as well.
Our ethos is:
Fun - Inclusiveness - Respect
Feel free to join us - we re not about rules and egos... al we want to do is ride with a bunch of like-minded folk. You will be treated with respect and we expect the same in return. Want to ride in a T-shirt? You're an adult and that is your choice, you won't be reprimanded for it. Want to join a big trip but only have a 125? That's fine - you'll be welcome, we included everyone. Want to go at warp speeds? No issues with that - just pay your own tickets is all we ask!
We understand that we are all responsible enough to make our own decisions within a group environment. As long as you aren't a danger to anyone within the group - we will welcome you to join us on a ride.
Pargat & Phil (P&P)
Founders of Roadrunners Motorcycle Club.
ABOUT PARGAT & PHIL:
Phil, Pargat & Sabrina (Phil's Girlfriend) - The Highlands, February 2016. What a crazy Idea...
We've been good friends since 2015, meeting from LMRC - another club. We have many great memories of riding together, some very crazy like riding around in snowy Scotland in February, chasing each other all day through seriously good roads at speeds you wouldn't want to speak too loudly to people of authority! ...And some a bit more down to earth like fixing bikes and eating dinner together.
We have a very relaxed attitude to life in general really and expect to head this club the same as everything else - chilled out. We didn't set this club up for any other reason than: we just want to go for a burger and have a relaxed atmosphere. Come and join us on a ride and we hope to meet & make new friends too.

Do you want to stay in shape and give back at the same time? During the Summer months, we offer a variety of activities for people of all ages. We provide front country trips between 5 to 10 miles per day in length to moderate to advanced trips 10 + miles in length per day. These trips are geared towards 1) Keeping public trail access open and 2) providing wilderness stewardship in the Wilderness Area's we support, and 3) assist forest visitors and educate them about Leave No Trace and outdoor ethics. In the winter months, we have our Winter Program which is geared towards supporting the Over Snow Vehicle Department, of the High Sierra Ranger District. There are 100+ miles of Winter Trails in and around Huntington Lake Area, and half of that gets cleared each year. The Winter Program gives volunteers an opportunity to come out and volunteer to do a different variety of activities, like get certified to operate a snowmobile, get your First Aid and CPR Certificates, learn to operate a chainsaw safely with supervision and then ultimately getting out there in the snow to assist the public and keep the trails safe.
Most events will be scheduled on weekends along with the occasional weekday and/or holiday trips. During the summer season, there will be a lot of extended trips into the backcountry. 2018/2019 will be much like years past where Wilderness Corps clears the public trails in the Dinkey Lakes Wilderness, and now through collaboration, we will be assisting with trail clearing in the Kaiser Wilderness. For those interested in multi-day activities, there will be a lot of backpacking/camping trips scheduled during the spring, summer, and autumn seasons. For the 2018/2019 Winter, we now have a Winter Program which focuses on Offroad Snow Vehicle use and the recreation management activities associated with this. Volunteers are encouraged to apply for this program,
Hiking and backcountry travel can be a dangerous and unpredictable activity. It is ALWAYS recommended you bring sufficient supplies of drinking water, snacks/food, a small first aid kit, sunscreen, insect repellent, and a flashlight to all outdoor activities and know your limits. Of equal importance is that you have the proper type of footwear and clothing. Please match the hike to your skill level.
If you have any questions feel free to reach out to our organizers... We will be using the Forum (link in the menu bar) to post information related to getting started with our trail crew.
Wilderness Corps is a registered non-profit agency and based out of Monterey, CA.

15 Warm-Hearted Stitchers 15 events
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).
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.
