Regarding No Shows at a meetup


Hosts work hard to ensure successful events and no-shows can be
embarrassing for them (restaurant reservations that go unused,
for example), and it discourages members from hosting future
events. Almost all our events fill up as well, so your RSVP
held a space another member could have used and prevented them
from attending.

Who classifies as a No-Show? Someone who RSVP's Yes to an event
a) does not show up
b) changes her RSVP to No within 2 hours before the start of
the event.

We recognize that emergencies do happen, and sometimes members
have to skip out at the last minute (they get a flat tire or
have an accident on the way, for example), but if that happens,
you still need to email or phone the Event Host ASAP and let
them know why you're not coming (or, if you absolutely can't do
it before the event, why you didn't come).

If you don't show up, don't update your RSVP and don't contact
the host with a valid emergency reason why you failed to
attend, you will be considered a No-Show and given a strike
under our Three Strikes policy.

Three Strikes

We're not going to kick anyone out of the group for one little
mistake -- life happens, after all. But repeated No-Shows and
poor behaviour aren't acceptable. Each No-Show or major rule
violation is a 'strike' and if you accumulate three strikes,
you'll be removed from the group permanently.
