Group sizes are limited to 10 reduce our impact in the wilderness, and waitlists of 10 or more people often form. In order to be respectful of of everyone's schedules, we are implementing a mandatory RSVP cutoff of 24 hours. Whether you're on the going list, or the waitlist, if you cannot make it to the hike you MUST change your RSVP to No at least 24 hours in advance. This gives people on the waitlist a chance to take your spot. This is why if you're on the waitlist and you won't be able to make it, you must also change your RSVP-- if you get bumped onto the going list and forget to check, have to cancel, or don't show up, it counts against you.
THREE STRIKES. If you cancel with less than a day's notice or fail to show up to a hike three times you'll be removed from the meetup group.
