Personally I don't agree with Tim's approach. Ron is doing an excellent job, and if there are free events why should you pay?!? I belong to other Meetups, and I can assure you that there is the same problem. Some meetups are packed, others people don't show up even if they registered. There is a variety of reasons, but most frequently the more ahead of time is the invitation, the higher are the chances of people not showing up. One suggestion would be to have some rules of engagement: e.g. "3 no shows" and member will be cancelled from the group.
 
Just an idea...

wow...80% "no show"??   geez,- that's not right...

the last (and only) of these events I attended was the Brazilian Party @ Artisphere and it was STELLAR!  (see review posted) 
Maybe...and this is just a suggestion,- if you scheduled fewer events but had people PAY IN ADVANCE (like the Brazilian Party),-
then you wouldn't have ANY "no shows" (peop don't pay $$$ for something 7 then not show up!)

just sayin...

Ron,

Nice email...I'm new to arthouse so not among "the guilty" and anyhow if I had RSVPd and changed my mind would be the type to let you know!  Sorry to hear what happened to you.  I'm trying to start a meetup group myself in my community and it hadn't occurred to me that this sort of thing might happen.  Good for you for the message you sent.  Hope it helps. Good manners seem to be going by the wayside.

I have never said anything about people not showing up, but last night was just plain mean.  Around 100 people signed up for the event and maybe 20 showed.  No one's getting evicted or publicly flogged or anything, it's just disrespectful to me and the people who do come (and expect a crowd).  It's not nice.
We had a great free Gallery Walk Friday, an incredible free concert on Saturday and a fun free movie last night.  We can keep doing this but please be respectful in your commitments.  Thank you.
Ronn
