Some Important Changes for Cheeky Drinks Starting April

  • Bisbane CBD

    Quuen st, Brisbane (map)

    -27.467304 153.028275

  • There are going to be some changes for Cheeky Drinks which i hope will make the group run more efficiently. The changes will occur in how meetups are scheduled, how you will RSVP to events and keeping your membership active. Please take time to read the changes and the reasons for these changes which will come into effect 1 April.


    1. Meetups will be announced no more than 2 weeks prior to the date of the event in most cases.

    2. RSVP to events will  open 1 week prior to the date of the event in most cases.

    3. Members who don't look at the Cheeky Drinks website in over a year will be deleted from the group.

    Why the Changes

    At the moment some people RSVP to events just to get their name on the list, without really knowing whether they will  attend, often making their mind up a few days (and in some cases a few minutes) before the meetup is due to start. This creates enormous waiting lists of people who genuinely want to attend. In some cases, people forget that they have RSVP'd to an event which means that a person on the waiting list misses out. I am confident that these changes will reduce the number of 'no shows' and long waiting lists.


    iWe are a very large group, which is great. However, there are inactive members who have not looked at the siite in over a year. In an attempt to keep an active membership, people who don't look at the site in over a year, will be deleted. At the moment there are about 120 people who are in this category. I will start deleting inactive members from 1 April. If you still want to keep your membership active make sure you take a quick look at the site. If you find that you have been deleted and you still want to be a member you can rejoin.


    As i said in the beginning, i hope that these changes will help to make the group run more efficiently. I thank you all in advance for your support and co-operation.

    People can still plan for an event. You have 2 weeks to decide whether you can attend. I understand that some people due to work and family commitments have to change RSVP last minute. Its the people who don't change their RSVP when they can't make it that is the issue here, as well as trying to avoid long waiting lists.
