NEW RSVP/CONFIRMATION POLICY

Please note that we do have a new policy in place. Five to seven days before the event, you will receive an email requesting that you confirm your RSVP by a certain time (usually 24 hours before the event). The way to confirm is to go to the event page (a link will be at the bottom of the email that you receive) and act as though you're going to CHANGE your RSVP - when the selection page pops up, leave the "Yes" radial button checked, and in the notes box below that, simply type CONFIRMED and hit submit. If you do not confirm by the deadline stated in that email, we will change your RSVP to a NO. If that is done and you would still like to attend, you may change yourself back to a YES, provided that there is still space available.

We are also adding a reminder of the policy as a "question" that will come up after you submit your RSVP - something to the effect of "Pls note that you'll be asked to confirm your RSVP prior to the event. If you don't confirm, you will be changed to NO. If there is space, you may change back to a yes, we just need to give mgmt accurate attendee info. Thanks for understanding!" This does not actually require a response, it's just a simple way for us to stress the importance of keeping everyone informed.

We had some confusion on a couple of recent events where this was done, and we were told that someone hadn't received the email asking for confirmation, yet they HAD received the email saying that their RSVP was changed! Please note that everything is sent to the same email address, whatever you have on file with Meetup.com, so please be on the lookout for emails referencing the events.

This new policy is simply to allow us to give more accurate attendee information to the restaurant management and to cut down on no-shows or last-minute cancellations. As always we recognize that emergencies do happen, and will not hold any prejudice when it comes to that, but if you cannot make an event, we always appreciate your updating your reservation as soon as you know that your commitments have changed. Of course, the "three-strikes-you're-out" policy remains in effect - if you have committed to and been a no-show to three events, the organization team may remove you from the group. Sorry for the length of this post, but I hope I covered the changes fully. If you have any questions about this new policy or of changes made to your membership or RSVP, please feel free to contact the host of the particular event, found next to the location at the top of the event page under "Who's Hosting", or Helene, the group's Organizer.

Thanks so much, and we look forward to many more wonderful events!
