Change to Meetup RSVP to control turnout
I'm sorry to have to do this but I can only hold 100 attendees in the Hacker Dojo Large Event room. To eliminate an overcrowded situation (like we had with the last meetup) I have to change this meetup to limit the enrollment to only 100 people. There is also a new $10. charge for the meetup to encourage only serious RSVPs. I will make sure you get $10 worth of learning, pizza and goodies at the workshop. I really didn't want to charge anything but this appears to be a fair way to control the capacity limits of the space.
Looking for a bigger space
If anyone knows of an alternative facility that I might be able to use to host these meetups that can accommodate more people, please let me know and I can go back to the free model with more space. Thanks for understanding about the new charge. Lets see if this creates a better situation and experience for the attendees.
