Susan, 

Thank you for posting this "reminder" to the meet-up people.  I organized a Bunco game last Sunday, and I had tables set up for 16 and 12 people showed up.  The frustration part about the whole thing is that I went to lot of trouble to get extra chairs and a table, and pens and food  to accommodate every one.  We all had fun, but I went to a lot of work to make sure everything was ready and four people just decided not to show up or e-mail.   So thank you again for the reminder to the meet-up group.

Maureen

I would like to remind everyone who signs up for an event that your organizers are taking their time to set these up. Sometimes it does not really matter if you "no show" other times it does, If it is at a restaurant chances are the organizer and the restaurant have set up a plan that includes the number of people that have signed up. If they arrange to bring in extra help we could cost them money by not showing. Also if there is a waiting list and you take a spot that you do not use, you may be denying someone the opportunity to go to an event they really wanted to attend.

PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE!! We all have things that come up from time to time, but you can usually go on line and notify that cannot make it. This frustrating to the organizer who is doing this as a courtesy to you and no shows may result in no meet ups scheduled.
 
Thank You
The organizers
