Live in Brickell and into card games and board games? If so, this is the group of you!!

Attendance Policy
——————————-
I have a few other meetups, and have found that in Miami it is very common for people to RSVP to meetups and either show up very late or not show up at all. Since these meetups are sized for the right number of people for game play, I want to discourage people from RSVPing and not showing up. I'll be at the meetup location on time and excited to meet everyone else, so I also want to discourage people showing up late... hanging out by yourself for 30 minutes waiting for late arrivals is no fun!!

To discourage no-shows and late arrivals, all meetups require a $6 'deposit'. Every deposit will be FULLY refunded if you show up on time or cancel before 36 hours of the meetup. I don't want to play favorites, so to make it fair to EVERYONE, there are no exceptions to this. Pay $6 and your RSVP will be confirmed. Show up >7 minutes late (going by the time on my cell phone) and you will not receive your deposit back.

I’m hosting this group to meet new people and make a few new good friends. To be fair for everyone, I’ll be 100% consistent with this policy... which is also in place because I have a full time job and I’m not a party planner, nor am I any type of promoter.

Registration for all meetups closes 36 hours before the start of the meetup. All $6 payments are required before then to ensure your spot is reserved. If payment is not received within 36 hours of the start of the meetup, your RSVP will be changed to 'Not Going'.

To make it fair to EVERYONE, there are no exceptions to this. Pay $6 and your RSVP will be confirmed. Show up >7 minutes late (going by the time on my cell phone) and you will not receive your deposit back. Show up without RSVPing and paying the $6, you will get kicked out of the group.

The group policy (above) requires payment 36 hours before the start of the meetup. If none of the payment methods register payment from you prior to the 36 hour deadline, your RSVP is automatically updated to ‘Not Going’

This policy is in place because of the high % of people in Miami that RSVP and never show up or show up late and the high % of ppl that ‘RSVP/commit to attending’ within a few hours of the meetup.

This isn’t my full time job. I’m not making a profit from this and I’m not getting any kind of kickbacks. I’m doing this just to meet people!

Too many times I’ve been alone at a meetup event waiting hours for late arrivals, or on people who decided last minute they will/won’t attend.

I realize last minute commitments and arriving late is culturally normal for Miami. However, I’m not a fan of hanging out solo or flaky commitments! For my own sanity (and to reduce the amount of time I spend getting bailed on or waiting on tardiness) I’ve implemented this policy. I will not play favorites and I host too many meetups to make an exception to this policy for everyone. So this policy applies to everyone without exception.

I didn’t use to be so strict. But waiting solo at meetup locations has paid a toll on my flexibility. Now I need to have a firm commitment on meetups (meaning the $6 deposit) 36 hours before the event. With the 36 hour deadline, if that commitment isn’t made by anyone in the meetup, I’m not left own my own at the start of the meetup, instead I have 36 hours to make my own plans with my non-meetup fiends.

I hope all meetup members understand the reason for this policy!
