RSVP and No Shows

No-Shows and RSVP Policy

When you RSVP for an event, you take up one of the allotted spaces for that event. If you don't show up, you deny another member the opportunity to attend. The same applies to changing your RSVP from "yes" to "no" just before an event. Even if an event is not full, the organizer must often make arrangements based on the number of people that RSVP'd and sometimes make last minute adjustments based on the number that actually attend.

We have a very low tolerance for no-shows. To not show up to something you registered in advance for affects the organization's volunteer leadership team as well as your fellow members. Without the efforts of our dedicated leadership team we wouldn't have any events to choose from. These are the amazing people who graciously offer their time to help with organizing, planning, and leading outings.

Please be respectful of both the person organizing the event as well as other members who would have enjoyed the opportunity to join in the fun but were denied that opportunity due to a no-show.

Given that you can update your RSVP at any time, there is never an excuse, aside from a personal emergency or tragedy that makes it okay to no show. All of us are volunteers, and it has a very negative impact on morale and enthusiasm to have no shows after all of the time and efforts we put into each event just for our members and ourselves to have a good time together.

We have two simple RSVP and No Show Rules:

1. Only RSVP if you plan to attend. If your plans change and or you are no longer able to attend, please update your RSVP as soon as possible.

2. Not showing up at an event results in a no-show.

Three no-shows can lead to membership suspension and/or being dropped from events with a waitlist.
