We understand that things sometimes come up last minute that are unavoidable, but it is important that every member is familiar with the group's RSVP policy.
Simply put, any member who shows a pattern of RSVP'ing "Yes" for events and then is a no show is at risk of being removed from the group. We try not to be rigid about this, so it's not a set number of "no shows" you are allowed. It's pretty much up to the organizer on a case by case basis.
To keep your member status in good standing, each member should strive to keep their RSVP to each event up to date so as to not inconvenience the event's organizer, outfitters, restaurants or other locale that we have given a head count number to, and the other group members that are left waiting for additional people to arrive before starting the planned event.
Thanks for understanding. Let us know if we can answer any questions or concerns you have about this policy.
