October Game Day--the only theme is fun!

  • October 5, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • Private Residence

Come one, come all--or at least the first 14 of you! What better way to welcome the fall, than playing board and card games? My personal preference are the more traditional games like Scrabble, Pictionary, Cranium, etc. BUT we have enough space for 2 or 3 simultaneous games, so bring 1 or 2 of your favorites and hopefully you can find like-minded players...even for the games that I've never even heard of :-)

This will be a pot luck! I'm going to grill some chicken and make a rice dish. I'll also have wine, soda and tea. Please bring a dish or drinks to share. It REALLY helps if you indicate what you'd like to bring--it helps me plan.

I'll send out the address a day or 2 before the party, but I'm basically 10 minutes north of BWI Airport. Please know that I usually stop checking emails a few hours before the party. So if you wait till the last minute, you might miss out on the fun!

Hope to see your face in the place!

      Thank you so much! I'm glad that it was worth your "pilgrimage" from DC! :-)

    I am sorry everyone. Something came up last night and it completely slipped my mind to change my RSVP. Hope you guys had a good time, and I will make sure to keep a better eye on the events posted and my RSVP status.

    So sorry all. I wanted to come, but had a bad allergic reaction to animal dander. I'll make sure to change my RSVP in the future. Sorry again. :/

    I think a limit of 5 on "No Shows" is very generous. I would actually set the limit at 3, if it it were up to me.

    I returned from my other event earlier than expected, so I checked to see if there were any spots available for this. It looked full, so I stayed home. Too bad the no-shows didn't change their RSVPs!

    Disappointing to hear there were no shows which hindered wait list from attending. Always tricky to handle. Ways others address is: invite more to allow for attrition and/OR state up front in description that folks are expected to attend barring emergency, send reminder emails by X date to change RSVP by X date if not attending due to space, and allow limited no shows (3?) and a person's membership can be impacted. Just some thoughts. (Hey, I probably needed a night off to chill and throw in dvds. ;-D)

      the limit on no shows is already in place. When a member hits 5, they are not allowed to be members. I also send reminder emails when i see someone repeatedly not showing up. The meetup site automatically reminds those that are attending as well. There is simply no excuse for no shows. Its very unfair and disrespectful to the hosts. It will soon get to a point where we will start charging a fee for events. Thanks for your input Elly.

      Nancy, Thanks for your response. I hope my words were received as intended, gentle input. Didn't recall what you had in place, as different groups and even events within them vary. But to me, home events appeal most - never met a sofa I didn't like :-D - but they certainly require firm RSVP. I know you're just mentioning fee and may not be seriously considering but just rhetorical thoughts (no response needed if you don't want :-D ) If you charge fee, would you refund if folks show? I hope people with $ wouldn't blow it off and consider it a loss. Also, hope you would make allowance for those of us freelancing/in transition. :-D

    We had fun, but I regret that some people were NO SHOWS--especially since there were people on the wait list ;-(

    Awesome! :-)

  • Elly C

    What is the latest those on the wait list would know if they're in - and in faith - assuming I get in, how late do you expect to go? Hmmm, lateness seems to be my question theme! ;-D

    • Nannette

      Ooops. let's try again :-) The cut off for responding is tomorrow at 3:00. I will be checking my mail regularly tonight and tomorrow, so that if someone takes themselves off the list, I'll let you know as soon as possible--the 3:00 p.m. being the very latest!

    • Elly C

      wow. sorry didn't make it in. :-( Would like to meet folks first but then maybe sometime I can host. My place isn't schmancy but sounds like I've got more room than others...\

    I was planning to bring some chips and dip. If that's already being brought I can grab something else.

    Let me know what kind of munchies / beverages are preferred. If you've been to Wegman's with my 'others' then you have to guess which one I'm bringing....

    • Nannette

      Now I'm intrigued :-) You are welcome to bring whatever you'd like! Just lemme know the category: appetizer, dessert, etc. Thanks!

      September 17

  • Tami

    Darn. I'll be out of town.
