Active events for adults is what the newly debuted TwiftiesCalendar.com is all about. Twifties are the fun people in their late 40s, and up. Twifties can sign up on the site for the email party list and be notified of upcoming events.
October 17, Sunday, will be the Catamount Adventure Party for Twifties. All (over age 8) are invited to come to Catamount Resort in the Berkshire Mountains, Hillsdale, NY, on the Massachusetts/NY line. The group will meet to spend a few hours adventuring on the rope courses and zip lines. An optional box lunch will be served at a discounted price of $5 in the tavern afterwards. The rope course will be $41 for ages 12+, $30 for ages 11-12 and $24 for ages 8-9.
Meet at 10:45 at the Adventure Desk in the main lodge. If there is light rain the event will happen. Heavy rain postpones to the following Sunday, Oct. 24. Please r.s.v.p to Lauren(at)Twifties(dot)com by midnight Saturday October 16. Full details on the Twifties Catamount Adventure Party are at http://twifties.blogspot.com/2010/09/twifties-catamount-adventure-party.html.
Coming in February is the Twifties Trip to Nosara, Costa Rica, for sun, surf, dancing, and yoga. Unlike other travel groups people travel in their own style with Twifties. Come down when and how you like, and stay where you like. Twifties will get together daily for an activity. Then travelers can spend time at their own speed, in activities with new Twifties activity companions, alone, or with their own travel companions. The idea is that the Twifties activities unfold organically.
“An open format is the way I like to travel and it works great, so I want to bring this wisdom to our Twifties Activities,” says Twifties founder Lauren Traub Teton. “Twifties activities are for independent travelers who might have gone to these places anyway, but just needed a little encouragement or some people to do things with to seal the deal.”
A Twifties day hike of the Appalachian Trail in Vernon, NJ was the latest Twifties event. It was a Twifties “Instant Event” that came up with very little planning, and those who knew about it and were available participated. A small group had a fantastic time hiking on a beautiful day, with even a little bit of unexpected adventure when a hiker from the group overshot the turnoff for the overlook and continued down the trail. A search party went after her and all were reunited. Beth Nolan, of BN Yoga led the group in some impromptu “Yoga Anywhere” in the woods and all descended the Wawayanda Mountain range stretched, refreshed, and grounded after the hike.
The video of the hike is at http://www.twifties.tv/videos.php?category_id=23.
Twifties.TV has over 50 entertaining videos of what Twifties do for fun, made by Ms. Teton. “We reached the thrilling milestone of 100,000 viewers for our videos last week!” says Ms. Teton. Our viewers solidly prove our demographic, with 50% over age 45 and 70% over age 35. 75% of our viewers watched the Oasis of the Seas preview videos, so it makes sense to assume they are an affluent market with disposal income.”
“The point of the Twifties movement is for the fun people close to 50 and up to regain their power and know that it’s ok, even therapeutic to have fun. Why are only 5% of advertising dollars directed at the group that controls over half of consumer spending? Apparently we are invisible. My mission is to make the aspirational lifestyle of a vibrant group of happy people show up on the radar screen, for the betterment of all,” says Ms. Teton.
