RSVP Guidelines


Lots of people are telling us that they cannot get on our events, because they are full. But often people drop out close to the event, or don’t show up at all. This prevents others from getting on that event.
Here’s what we can all do to help others.

NO SHOW: Signing up for a hike and just not showing up is NOT okay. It’s respectful to those on the waiting list to change your RSVP to “Not Going” as soon as you know.

LATE BAIL-OUTS: Signing up for a hike and bailing out the day before, night before, or day of the hike is NOT okay. Your “Yes” RSVP is a commitment to attend that event. It is not a “Maybe”.
If you can’t make it, change your RSVP to “no” a week before the hike. Changing your RSVP early is respectful of other members on the waiting list for that hike. Emergencies and other necessary plan changes do happen. But they are the exception, and are unusual.

BRINGING SOMEONE: Bringing a friend? Include them in your RSVP as a “plus one” so that the count is accurate.

JUST SHOWING UP: Please don’t just show up without being a “Yes” on the RSVP list. Wilderness areas only allow 15 people in a group, the Event Host needs to know how many and who will be there, and large groups tear up the land more, are noisier, carpooling and other logistics get more tricky, etc.
We thank you for your help in being considerate of others to make 3H events the best they can be for everyone.
