Once in a while a guest is welcome if RSVP's allow it but if it is the same guests over and over, they need to join the group. Dues will be mandatory collected at the door. This is only fair for active members. Thank you for your attention and if those dues are not paid or those guests continue to RSVP, we will modify events to not allow quests unless they are public events.
