The Fees:

There is no fee to attend, but in exchange for the private meeting room we are expected to make food and drink purchases. When you pay, please tell the barista that you are with our Meetup group so that your purchases can be tracked.

So that's it. No more excuses. No more procrastination. Fire up your laptops and sharpen your pencils. Then join us to sit down, shut up, and write!

    Hey everybody, something came up with my dogs, so I can't make it! There's also something up with the RSVP button that doesn't toggle. I tried chaning the RVSP earlier and had no luck :( My sincere apologies for any inconvenience. See you next week!

      No problem. I think you can't change the RSVP once the meetup starts. But I can :)

    I also don't know how, Michelle. However, if a spot opens up, and the software gets to your spot on the list, you only have a short time to respond. If you don't respond quickly, the software goes to the next person on the waiting list.

      Actually, it should notify everyone on the list when a spot opens up. The first one to respond gets the spot. There was a glitch last week where it did revert back to the automatic upgrade, but I changed it back. Let me know if that does not appear to be the case.

    I'm not able to attend after all. I'm not sure how to take myself off of the waiting list.

      Go to the Tuesday Meetup page. At the top right it should say "This Meetup is full. You're being notified about open spots." Click "Turn Off" to remove yourself from the list. Let me know if that works.

    So glad I was able to get in under the wire this time! I look forward to meeting everyone and (finally!) getting some work done on my project!
