Salem Beer and Wine Adventures Message Board › Meetup confusion
|A former member||
The last couple of Meetups have resulted in a lot of confusion and hurt feelings. Let me try to get us back on track.
1st - we do encourage everyone to suggest a Meetup but if you do, and it's accepted, YOU are the host - unless you get a co-ordinator to accept that responsibility.
2nd - when you submit a Meetup give all the details about it. Time, place, who's playing (or the venue), any special things about the area (like parking) and most important of all - what (if any) are the costs?
3rd - where shall we meet? If you set a place to meet don't change it at the last minute. Sometimes people will meet someplace else first, but the host needs to be at the designated spot on time.
4th - if you can't make it let someone know or at least cancel your RSVP as soon as possible. Sometimes we have to guarantee a minimum number of people and we often have waiting lists.
Things change. All comments posted on the Meetup are emailed to each person who is going. If you do not have email on your phone I'm sorry, but it's not our fault that you don't get last minute messages! If you are new let us know you want to meet someone. We will try to work out something to get you to us. I know it's hard to come to big events as the new person, so maybe try something small first. The dine out group has many of the people and coordinators as our beer/wine group. Maybe try one of those dinners as a guest of the coordinator! Smaller venue = more face contact.
If you can't find us for some reason post it on the Meetup site for the event. Many of us have the APP and check often. It also sends email out as previously stated.
