Why Do I Have to Join A Waitlist

Because our events are highly oversubscribed and our number of volunteer leaders is small for many of our events we have decided to use a lottery to fill some or all of the available spaces. This is the fairest way we could determine to give everyone a chance to attend events.

Generally when we conduct a lottery it is held one to two weeks before the actual event - read the event description to be clear.

Also, we generally reserve MORE spaces for those who are supporters than those who are not contributors. Some events are supporter-only.

For information about how the lottery is conducted, and why it was instituted see here.

Please see each event description to know when the lottery is held.

When the lottery is conducted, those who are selected at random are moved to YES RSVP status.

After the lottery, if someone drops out, the first RSVP from the wait list is automatically moved to a "YES" EXCEPT when payment is required. When payment is required the first to pay is the first one in the event.
