Re: [Detroit-Drunken-Historical-So­ciety] Should we charge for events? - Paying a nominal fee does not insure attendance. The prohibition event had a $10 fee. How many people paid their $10 and d Pamela Rupinski Feb 2, 2014 4:57 PM
Re: [Detroit-Drunken-Historical-So­ciety] Should we charge for events? - I really like the beverage ticket idea if it is decided to try instituting a small fee to see if it helps attendance. That seems very fair and given the name of the group, most people imbibe in at least one drink anyways.  I have seen other Jackie Feb 2, 2014 4:46 PM

Re: [Detroit-Drunken-Historical-So­ciety] Should we charge for events? - How has attendance become an issue? If you are looking at the opera house tour which was pre-paid, which i went to, a lot of people could not make it because of the road conditions.  Paying money did not improve attendance.

Re: [Detroit-Drunken-Historical-So­ciety] Should we charge for events? - Fees will discourage attendance, and what would the money go for? Purchasing food/drink for the event, organizer dues on meetup, or just pocketed by someone? On Sun, Feb 2, 20 Aron Sandler Feb 2, 2014 4:05 PM

Re: [Detroit-Drunken-Historical-So­ciety] Should we charge for events? - I think Meet- up already cancels people with two no-shows.  I was on the wait list for the Stroh's event ( thought I had registered in Dec.), the email saying I  was approved came at 5 p.m. when I had already made other plans.  I hope I Tim Reade Feb 2, 2014 2:24 PM
Re: [Detroit-Drunken-Historical-So­ciety] Should we charge for events? - If the point is to minimize no-shows that have RSVP'd yes, perhaps you can take attendance/register members at events and if a member is a no-show Angelique Meiu Feb 2, 2014 1:50 PM

Re: [Detroit-Drunken-Historical-So­ciety] Should we charge for events? - I belong, to a few Meet up groups & most of them are having the same issue with no shows & i think if you are a constant no show you should be charged a fee to come to another event.

Re: [Detroit-Drunken-Historical-So­ciety] Should we charge for events? - I am a new member and have not attended an event. This email string has been very informative.

Re: [Detroit-Drunken-Historical-So­ciety] Should we charge for events? - Also keep in mind, a couple of other meet groups i was member of folded.

Re: [Detroit-Drunken-Historical-So­ciety] Should we charge for events? - The fee would have to vary a little for the events as some would certainly be worth more or have a higher cost associated with them. Alternatively, instead of a per event fee, CJ Ramseyer Feb 2, 2014 12:08 PM

Re: [Detroit-Drunken-Historical-So­ciety] Should we charge for events? - It depends on now how much your going to charge. What if your charging 15 dollars to go to a event, like the one on Polish history. The lady was nice but, a few people.
