How It Works
Once you become a member, the 518social Events/Calendar page and the 518social Blog page will become available to you. These two pages will be your 518social "Go-To" pages to check out on a daily basis.
The Capital Region is geographically, a very large area. To accommodate this space, we have broken the club up into 4 Sub-Regions (Albany, Schenectady, Troy, and Saratoga) for certain things at 518social.
These separate sub regions are being offered because many individuals in their day to day lives may want to be social, but may not want to drive too far beyond their local area where they may live, work, and play to be social.
There will be Happy Hours at selected bars throughout the Capital Region.
Happy Hour locations will be announced on our Events/Calendar page.
Want to make the club better and earn some extra cash by getting Bars/Restaurants onboard who you may have relationships with?
Send an email to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the owner or manager's contact information of your favorite bar (or two or three, etc...). We will contact them using your name as a referral. On your third referral or more, we will double the pay-out amount.
If they get onboard we will pay you a one-time referral fee of $25 if they initially get onboard for a single month, ($50 cost to them), $50 if they initially get onboard for the first qtr. ($100 cost to them) or $100 if they initially get onboard for 12 months ($300 cost to them). If two or more people send us an email regarding the same bar, it's the person who sends the email first who will be the one who gets the referral payment.
These free activites will also be updated the events calendar. These will be unique types of activities where location and quantity will be dependent on your feedback. Suggestions are encouraged and welcomed. Send suggestions to email@example.com. This is your club. We aim to please, so suggest away.
There will be different opportunities to play sports with and against other 518social members. These will be pick-up sports that will vary in the level of competitiveness. Whether they are competitive or casual will be dependent on those who are playing. We will offer men’s only, women’s only, and coed sports. We hope to also grow into having tournaments and competitions between regions. Again, please let us know what you’re interested in. We will follow your lead.
All road trips are scheduled and paid for in advance. These will either be getting on an airplane/train/cruise ship or will be chartered bus trips on comfortable busses with a bathroom and free Wi-Fi. Once we have enough paid members for a bus trip, we will then order the bus. If we do not have enough paid members for a particular trip by a designated cut-off date, we will give you the choice to either have your money returned or kept as a credit that will go toward a future trip that you may have an interest in. Most bus trips will be $50. For any trips where tickets are needed as part of the trip, this ticket cost will be an extra cost added on. We will never charge you more than what we pay for the tickets. We will always offer two free tickets for any bus trip. These will be volunteers who in return for their free trip, will coordinate the trip from its pick up location to its drop off location. For any trips that involve more then a Bus, we will be very clear up front on expectations and costs.
Very simple. No contracts. You can get out at any time.
