Attendance/RSVP Policies Explained (To Keep Events Organized)
1. The "YES" list is for people who are SURE they will attend an event. If you think you may be able to make it, please do not click "YES". As always, if you are on the "YES" list, we expect you to show up. If you don't, we will remove you from the group.
2. The "Waitlist" is activated when an event is full. If you are on the Waitlist, you are waiting for someone from the "YES" list to cancel, then you can take their spot. Do not show up at an event unless your name appears on the "YES" list. You will be removed from the group if you do so.
3. Members-Only events are for members only. We host these events because there is always a waiting list of members trying to get on the "YES" list. In order to make it easier for members to get in, we make some events members-only. This is a private club and members should have priority over guests to sign up for gatherings. If you are a couple and would like to come to an event together, please register as members individually and rsvp as members. If only one of you can get on the "YES" list and you do not want to come alone, then wait for the next event.
4. On each event posting, the organizer gives a deadline as to when one has to update their RSVP status prior to the event. It is usually 24 hours. 48 hours for really popular events. If you change your status after the deadline, we will label you as "Last-Minute Cancellation Offender" and if this happens again, you will be removed from the group.
