Group Guidelines

As mentioned on out "about" page, we are a very diverse group of women who share the common interests of a good book, good company and yummy food and drink. We ONLY meet :

  • once a month, on the second to last or last Thursday on the month
  • at 6:30
  • at a restaurant in or in the towns surrounding Worcester

    Because of the way the group is set up, we have some simple guidelines for our members.

  • Everyone must have a picture of themselves on their profile. It is tough
    enough to walk into a new group, but if people don't know who they are looking
    for, that can make the task even more difficult. It makes it easy for the group to
    flag you down, and also for you to find the members in the group.
  • As this group only meets out at a Restaurant, we have to limit the number of
    members who can attend or the discussion just doesn't work. There is no limit to
    how many meetings you RSVP to, all I ask is that you are attentive to the time
    and date and change your RSVP as your plans change.
  • The deadline to RSVP for a meeting is NOON on the Tuesday before the meeting.
    I will send emails to remind you of this, as will meetup.com. The website will
    allow you to change your RSVP to "no" after this deadline, but I ask that you
    contact me directly about having to do so. If you have to change your RSVP 2 or
    more times after the Tuesday deadline, you will most likely be removed from the
    group. If you "No show" 2 times, you WILL be removed from the group
    and banned from rejoining. Conversely, if space opens up for a meeting once
    RSVPs are closed, I send out an email to everyone on the waitlist asking who can
    fill the open spot on a first come first serve basis.
  • There is a $1 fee each time you attend the meetup. I will collect that in cash
    from everyone the night of the meeting. This is defray the costs of keeping the
    group on meetup.com
  • We are flexible & understand that sometimes it will be months in between
    meetings where our members can attend. But, we operate based upon the
    participation of our members, whether it be by suggesting ideas, voting or
    attending. Even if you are not attending the meetings, I ask that you are making
    suggestions for books or places to eat as well as voting in the polls that ultimately
    decide what we read & where we meet. If it is more than 3 months since you
    were on our website or have contacted me with ideas, you will be removed from
    the group due to inactivity.

    This is a wonderful group that is pretty low key. We welcome you to join us each month even if you didn't quite have time to finish the book. The name of the group is Wine & Dine Book Circle after all. The book is definitely the common reason we get together, but some months we will only spend a couple of minutes talking about the book and others we will not be able to talk about anything else.
