RE: [connecticut20sto40s] Poor Attendance

Thanks for your email. Due to some personal things going on right now, I'm afraid I can't attend these events as much as I would like to.

Ok so I usually never do "reply all" but I do feel the need to speak up here.  Bill's email obviously comes from a place where we (the organizers) put a lot of effort into planning and setting up events, specials, etc- especially when 30 people RSVP.  It can be disappointing for the organizers to spend their time planning events because we get so excited to have large responses.  Usually it is worth it no matter what the turn out ends up being, so I do want to thanks the members that came out and got silly.  The members who were there last night, both old and new, made it a fun event and its always nice getting to know new people.  

To our members; we value your input.  If there are events you would like to see that meet your interests or areas you would like us to explore please let us know.  This meetup can really only be successful when all members are participating and having fun.  

Hope to see everyone at an event soon- 

Lauren

On the good side, Lauren was a very gracious host. Sorry Eric and I couldn't stay long Lauren.

Just a note that we had very poor attendance last night. 35 people put yes for the event and we didnt even get half of that. I think we counted 13 or 14. We had tables reserved for the group and everything and they were not even filled. Obviously we always expect less will show up but that is less then half. That is embarassing for us the organizers and makes us look bad when we have an event where we make a reservation for all these people and less then half dont show up. It was a yes or no response and you had plenty of time to update it. Do not commit to something if you arent going to come. It takes a minute to change your response. Even long time members put yes and didnt show up. That is upsetting. Please change your responses in the future if your not going to show up. We understand sometimes things come up and you cant come but there are people that repeatedly do not show up and we may have to remove you from the group if you are a no show multiple times. Thank you.

The organizers
