We are truly excited about your interest in starting a Prime Timers Worldwide Chapter. When you do it, you will be embarking on what is sure to be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life. You will find the enthusiasm with which the project is met, and the good that the organization brings to its members to be a real incentive to make the organization work. Every sincere attempt to start a chapter has had unqualified success; there are many guys waiting for this opportunity.

To assist you along the way, we have prepared an information packet that includes general instructions to help in the initial stages of the organization. Contact our Vice-President of ChaptersPresident, or Director Emeritus and they will send you the packet and help you get started. After the second meeting (and the election of a temporary governing board), things will fall into place, and keeping the club moving forward will be easy.

Also included is a set of general guidelines to provide those constants we think necessary if the name "Prime Timers" is to mean the same thing wherever it is mentioned. We have included a list of steps in starting a chapter; just remember that these are not all done at once. We keep operating procedures loose so each chapter can operate in a way that is best for its members and community.

The Worldwide recognition of Prime Timers means that members now have "connections" when they travel. Members are welcome to attend events of all other chapters, and this networking opportunity is being widely used.

Through Worldwide, you have free exchange of ideas between chapters. We share our monthly newsletters with other chapters. These provide a rich source of ideas for programs and activities. We share forms and write-ups of any kind that may be used word for word, or can be altered to meet your specific needs.

If you decide to pursue the idea of starting a chapter, you will learn there are a lot of wonderful guys out there who are not into bars; and who, therefore, have become disconnected from gay society. They will find a whole new social life, thanks to Prime Timers. Also, you will vastly increase your own set of friends. It's great!

Please keep in touch and let us know how we can help. When you set your first meeting date, we will send you additional forms, newsletters, etc. We look forward to hearing from you and getting to know you.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

These guys are planning a trip by train across state to Philadelphia. The will leave on Tuesday, returning home Friday. As their newsletter reads, ‘they will sample all that Philadelphia has to offer’. Hmmm…..! Sounds good to me. Central Pennsylvania is nice country. I’d like to be along on that trip. We’ll read the recap next issue, I hope.

Dallas / Fort Worth. Texas

91 members – The guys will be carpooling for a field trip east to the town of Canton, Texas. Canton has the largest outdoor flea market in the country, covering hundreds of acres. They will be meeting enroute for breakfast, so it sounds like a fun day. Be sure to have the plastic along.

Seattle, Washington

The chapter is having their annual summer picnic at Woodland Park on Sunday, August 19th. Exact details will be coming out later. If any of you will be in the Pacific Northwest, try contacting them for meeting. For those of you that have never been up in that part of the country, you have a real treat in store. It sure is a pretty area.

Cross Timbers, Texas

If any of us find ourselves in the area west of Ft. Worth: Weatherford, Ranger, Graham, Granbury, Mineral Wells, here’s a suggestion. Check with their website to learn if a social may be scheduled. Many of their members live a some distances, so are not getting together several times a week. Jim Fritsch is their current secretary, and is most amiable. He can clue you in if an activity is happening.

Melbourne, Australia

The chapter put an article by our founder, Woody Baldwin, in their newsletter, and it is worth using: “Don’t make the natural mistake of judging success on quantity. If you plan a movie night, and only four men show up, don’t think of this as an excuse for discontinuing the event. If the four men have a good time, get to know each other, and find fellowship, then there are four men that did not sit home bored and alone. And, as they talk of the good time, the number will grow. Remember, we’re trying to bring happiness to older guys.”

Wichita, Kansas

At the last general meeting, which is generally a potluck, they’ll chose a theme. The time the chose the theme Breakfast for Dinner. Hmmm? As mother told us it was, but is breakfast still the most important meal of the day if it comes at dinnertime? They had several casseroles, apple omelets, sausage burritos, along with tons of desserts. Sounds like a breakfast I'd sure eat anytime.

Tulsa, Oklahoma

Published in: Chapter news |

Congratulations to John Madigan! He was honored with the Community Hero Award at the Equality Center’s Gala Ball on April 28. Reading in their newsletter all the activities and committees he has served on to help the gay community in Tulsa, he’s certainly worthy of the award.
