    Lindsay, I don't know how to 'take down' a Meetup on this group. I'll change my RSVP so this will show no-one attending, but could you take this down? Thank you!

    We're closing the guest list and the invitations to this Meetup. I belong to another meetup so I'm switching my RSVP to that group. Suzy, you were not on the confirmed attendee list at Eventbrite so the gate desk won't let you in unless you buy ticket shortly (we'll assign you to another meetup so you'll have company)

    Yes you do get to keep the commemorative wine glass. It's etched with the original Rancho branding Iron and is pretty cool.
