    Hi Kim,
    I have been organizing Meetups and other gatherings for many years, and this is what I learned. It is a simple fact of life that most people who RSVP do not show up. That is how it is with any Meetup and it is simply unreasonable to expect reality to be something else than it is.
    However, it is very easy to solve that issue. Do NOT limit the number of attendees, that means NO waiting list. Anyone who wants can show up and who does not want will not show up.
    And assume that about 50% of people will show up - so if you have 30 RSVPs, make a reservation for ABOUT 15 people. Never promise to a restaurant or other venue the exact number of people, because that is simply impossible to know. More than likely they will want your business and accept the approximate number, and in a small chance that they don't , then just take your business somewhere else. If you try doing it this way everyone will be happy, and you will have no frustration with organizing.

    Hi everyone

    This event way great an I enjoyed everyone who came out. Here in lies the problem we had 20 people sign up and 14 people on the waiting list. An only five people come out. Four showed up and one called not feeling good. But that's 15 people who dont come. It hard for people to put on event when people take up space on the site who don't show up. There were 14 people who wanted to come but couldn't because the space was full.

    If you want more events free you have to come out or take yourself off the list. I spent money renting chairs for 20 people and only five came out. I am not upset that you don't come I am upset that you took up space from someone else.

    This is why you see less events on the page because of all the no shows. Please in the future be mindful of other peoples time, money and wait listed people.

    Thank

    • kim p.

      As people drop off the list it opens up and they send out an email to the wait list. I will try to plan another one soon.

    Kim, you are AWESOME to be doing this. I'm a new vegan and only have a few regular, daily items I choose from. I'm looking for cheap, quick, and healthy. Thank you!
