The group has grown large enough that unfortunately I have to institute new rules for attendance/RSVP etiquette in 2013. I borrowed the rules used in the Chicago Euchre Club that have been very effective. I enjoy everybody's company at the games, and have a very hard time being the "bad guy" so please do not make me one by not following the guideline below:
==DO NOT cancel last minute (i.e., same day or less than 24 hrs). It places an additional and stressful burden on me to try and find a sub. Not to mention, it may force the rest of the group to play with only three players which is not as much fun.
==DO NOT RSVP "yes" merely to save a spot. If you are even remotely uncertain whether you can make the game, do not RSVP "yes". It is unfair to members who can commit to the date and want to play. Place yourself on the waitlist instead. Patterns of repeated cancellations are being noticed.
Due to the growing popularity of this meetup, the needs of the organizers, and in the interest of fairness, individuals will be REMOVED from this group's membership list for failing to show up for a game, failing to provide advanced notice, and/or for patterns of cancellations (I do notice patterns), no-shows, and late appearances. I apologize for taking this hard-line approach but in order to make the game a pleasant experience for everyone -- organizer and players alike -- absences will not be tolerated.
Lets make this a great year in Euchre and win a bunch of Crowns!
