OFF is not an events site! It's a member-run community and forum and a hive of activity.
However... we rely on you, the members, to make it work this way...
It's time to start creating Activities and Clubs here on the site. The idea of OverFiftiesFriends is for people to meet friends, new and old, both on the site and in the real world; at pubs, clubs, parks, galleries, theatres, airports... anywhere! The new version of the site offers great opportunities for putting up fun activities and useful clubs for other members.
Click here to Create an Activity. Click here to Create a Club.
Once you have created activities or clubs, in order for them to work, it's essential that you get the members active. The best way is with our ALERTS system. Click on My Activities or Clubs I Own, click on the activity or club you want to alert people about, and under Options, click on Manage Alerts. This brilliant tool allows you to send an email to all those who have joined your activity/club either there and then, or at a pre-determined time (automatic). You can send out an alert telling your members to meet in the chat room, telling them news about the activity/club and or reminding them when you are meeting up at your venue.
It is also essential that you keep your activity/club information up-to-date. You can do this by clicking on Edit from within the activity/club.
Let's get out and get active!
