    You must RSVP to attend this event, and if you are unable to attend, you should un-RSVP to free up your spot. No-showing produces bad karma, inhibits events from starting on time, and becomes part of your attendance record. Hike leaders can choose to push chronic no-showers to the waitlist on scheduled hikes with a long waitlist.
