It’s time to present the top ten Outdoor Meetup Groups from the past 30 days!
Before we share that though, take a look first at some of the best practices these top Meetups excel at:
- Eye-catching Descriptions: bullet points and formatting are kinder on the eyes than a brick of text, give a good first impression and are easier to remember. Better descriptions mean more members, and more members mean more RSVPs!
- Pictures a’plenty: Lots of photos and graphics to liven up the page, and show newcomers and members how much fun you’re having. Learn about using HTML, managing photos in the activity feed and how to add a banner.
- Multiple Meetups mean more Organizers: The Organizer can’t always be everywhere at once! This means having a strong leadership team is important to host larger Meetups and multiple Meetups at the same time. For Outdoor Meetup Groups in particular, learning CPR, first-aid, or survival skills can be great Meetup ideas for members of your leadership team or interested members.

Somewhere in West Tennessee, not far from Graceland, nine women — or “The 9 Nanas,” as they prefer to be called — gather in the darkness of night. At 4am they begin their daily routine — a ritual that no one, not even their husbands, knew about for 30 years. They have one mission and one mission only: to create happiness. And it all begins with baked goods.
“One of us starts sifting the flour and another washing the eggs,” explained Nana Mary Ellen, the appointed spokesperson for their secret society. “And someone else makes sure the pans are all ready. We switch off, depending on what we feel like doing that day.
“But you make sure to say Nana Pearl is in charge, because she’s the oldest!” she added with a wink and a smile.
Over the next three hours, The 9 Nanas (who all consider themselves sisters, despite what some of their birth certificates say) will whip up hundreds of pound cakes, as part of a grand scheme to help those in need. And then, before anyone gets as much as a glimpse of them, they’ll disappear back into their daily lives. The only hint that may remain is the heavenly scent of vanilla, lemon and lime, lingering in the air.
