I am sorry to hear that you want to step down as an organizer. I am offering to either help OR take over if you are really set on stepping down. The meetups are a lot of fun and I would not like to see it go "fizzle down and die."
A few logistics before I commit to taking over:
1) I will not be paying out of poker (I am not as generous as you) however I have ideas on how to collect.
How much per year?
When is the fee due?
2) For RSVP's it has to be made clear to the members that they have to RSVP. And then give them 3-chances, and then impose some consequence. It could be a fun consequence so people don't get scared and run off.
Sometimes it is easier to just show up and not get online to RSVP. A suggestion (as a fallback) would be for me to bring laptop to the meetups, log on, and have everyone present sign-in. This is allowing members to be lazy; however it might take care of the problem.
3) I do not know how to use the system. I'm sure it cannot be too hard; it's not ���nucular��� science. Regardles, any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Not meetup related:
I would like to return the poker table top to you before the holidays.
Let me know what would be a good time.
Mon - Fri your office is practically on my way home. Return time varies so I leave it up to you to pick a day. This week I can do it on Thursday.
p.s. We could grab dinner one afternoon/evening and talk meetup business. More people can join if you have anyone in mind.
