The Virginia Wine Club Message Board › Happy New Year and Change to RSVP Policy
Good Morning All!
Thank you all for making 2011 a great year for the Virginia Wine Club. On behalf of all the moderators, I thank you all for your support and continued contribution to our success!
To all the new members: welcome and we look forward to you all joining us an event soon!
One issue w have run into lately is people RSVP'ing to events then not showing up or canceling at the last minute. We have almost 1300 members and space at most events is limited, which is why they fill up so fast. Unfortunately, when someone no-shows it keeps other members from attending the event.
We are going to try something new this year: Every RSVP will now require a $1 payment through Amazon payments. In talking to other moderators this system dramatically improves the RSVP rate and decreases the no-shows.
I look forward to anothe great year with lots of wine!
