The UK CONNEXION

Summer Events 2021

You and your single friends, WHEREVER BORN, are invited to the following events
There is a $5 levy per person per event to be paid on arrival.
YOUR GUESTS and FIRST TIMERS INCLUDED.

When reserving for these events, please give your first & last names plus home phone number in case there is a change. Your home phone number is important - even if you reserve by email. The host may need to call you about a last-minute change.

When paying the levy, do not expect hosts to provide change; we must minimize the handling of cash. If you do not have a $5 banknote, write a cheque payable to the UK CONNEXION before you arrive. You will be asked to drop payment directly into a bag or envelope from the host.

UKC outdoor events are only possible by strict compliance with COVID-19 rules. If you do not believe in the necessity of masking, sanitization, and social distancing requirements, or have any virus symptoms, PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND.
