RSVPs to Friday Meetups--No Shows and Last Second Cancellations

From: Neil S.
Sent on: Saturday, July 2, 2016 8:43 PM

So this is an email I had absolutely zero desire to write to members of this Meetup.

My Friday meetups were always nomikai that took place in crowded restaurants in Cambridge. I moved them over to Cambridge Brewing Company after it appeared that John Harvard's stopped taking group reservations on Friday evenings. That said, I can never get a group of larger than 10 into CBC.

It's for that reason I cap the RSVPs to 10 on my Meetups and have a waiting list. The whole point of a waiting list is so somebody who wants to go can if somebody else drops out.

I've been a real pain about RSVPs in the past, and no-shows (or RSVPing "no" within minutes before the Meetup is supposed to start) is becoming a real issue. Already, I've had people who wanted to come to my Meetups be unable to do so because they were on the waiting list while the RSVP limit was full, but then I had no-shows.

I don't want to be mean, but changing an RSVP takes all of 30 seconds. If you decide you can't make one of my Meetups, I urge you to get yourself off the RSVP list so somebody else who does want to go can join.
