Because of this, if a member does not update their rsvp prior to a hike, they will be marked as a No-Show. If that member has three No-Shows in 6 months they will be banned from club activities for three months. We understand that there could be a valid reason for a no-show, but not for three. So please, if you are on the Yes list of an event and can't go, remove yourself as soon as possible to avoid this.
