Have you seen the Clubs function on Over Fifties Friends? A great way to make new friends and get together to share a common interest....
The clubs section can be found by clicking here. Browse the clubs members have already created, or why not create one yourself? The idea is that the clubs are started and maintained by the members themselves.
Just a note about clubs on OverFiftiesFriends:
The club function is quite simple, and people will not find new clubs/check those of which they are members necessarily without some kind of active reminder from the clubs' creators.
My suggestion is that you regularly update the info on the club page (click "Edit club" under "options" on your club's page). You can post times for events, ask for suggestions, or even suggest times to meet in the chat room to discuss the club (you can start a room just for your club once you are in the chat room, with or without password protection).
Also, use the Alerts funtion (click "manage alerts" under "options" on your club page). Here you can create or edit alert messages that will go to members of your club's email inboxes. Note that the recipients cannot reply to those messages, so make sure you state clearly that it's a message from your "X" club on the OverFiftiesFriends site.
You can also create a forum topic for your club in the Clubs forum (Forums can be found under "Discussion" in the left menu). A good idea is to put a link to your club forum topic in the club's info page. Just contact us if you need more info on how to do this.
Lastly, if your club is lacking members, we suggest you find prospective users who would be interested, using the site search. Just put in the theme of your club as a search word in the "interests" field of the search (the search is the orange link in the top left of the site, "Search for members").
Any other questions, just let us know.
