About the waiting list

From: Chet P.
Sent on: Friday, March 1, 2013 3:14 PM

The group has been great over the last few months and I am very happy about all we are doing. We are now a very active group with plenty of events going on.

The only problem comes when we have the waiting list added to the rsvp's. I wish that everyone could handle the waiting list as it makes things much easier for me when putting together events.

Unfortunately, it does not work well. At last nights event (Humble Pie) we had 7 no shows. This happens whenever we add a waiting list to an event. When there is no waiting list our attendance is close to 100%.

There was another person removed from the club after last nights meetup due to the amount of no shows. This is a very simple thing...if you can not make it, change your rsvp. If changing your rsvp at the last minute or a few hours before becomes a habit, that will be treated  like a no show.

Once again, I do not own these restaurants or venues that we are holding our meetups at. If we have a good reputation as a group we will be welcome at these establishments...and we will be treated properly with good deals and extras. If we have a poor reputation as a group that does not show up with the amount of people promised...we will not be welcomed back. It's as simple as that. We have already been asked not to return to an establishment here in the west valley because of the excess no shows.

We have a waiting list for our next meetup but after that...Bottom line...no more waiting lists. If you want to get into a meetup, you will have to keep checking the web page for openings. Sorry it has to be that way, but this is not my choice and I would prefer a waiting list. I see no other way to cut down on the no shows. I want places to look forward to our group doing events there.

Other than the waiting list and no shows, this continues to be a great group and I look forward to it get even better!!
