What if there are no Events in my area?
You can start one and also invite your friends to be members of AdventurousBug. You don't have to fill out an application form or sign any contracts to start events in your area. Our goal is to reach all areas of the country, and beyond and to have several thousands of members registered. Since we are at the start up of our businesses we may not have reached your area, yet. However, as we grow and through word of mouth, we anticipate a solid growth of events across the country and overseas. Try posting a couple events in your area, maybe there is something you already do often and would like to bring more women in to join you, and then get the word out for more people to register on the website and attend your event. Something as simple as a dinner or a walking group can get things going. Get the word out by posting flyers in your local women’s gyms, women’s centers, stores, schools, gyms, or newsgroup postings, etc. Call or broadcast email everyone you know or anyone you think would be interested.
Also starting a Group on the site can be of help, sharing the same interests can quickly grow your possibilities.
