Please note the No Show Policy:
As always please update your RSVP in advance of the event if your plan has changed. Cancelling less than three hours before an event counts as a "No Show" since it does not provide adequate time to notify the folks on the waiting list. I generally send out my phone number the night before. If an emergency happens, please call me and let me know. Direct communication is very important as it allows the host to make last-minute adjustments for the capped attendance events.
One "No Show" without a call to me and you will not be able to RSVP to my capped attendance events for three months. Three "No Shows" and you will not be able to RSVP to my events.
Let's give everyone who wants to attend the group events the chance. Thank you for your cooperation.
