Note on RSVPs

Also wanted to say one note on RSVP protocol. We use the RSVPs to get a clear idea of the numbers for each meetup. We've been getting lots of RSVPs but unfortunately lots of no-shows. Last meetup (Google Glass) had over 300 RSVPs but <100 in attendance. This puts a burden on our sponsors in preparing for the right number (food, seating, beer, etc). Please be considerate if you've RSVP'd but find yourself unable to attend (by coming back and marking it NO). That's all.
