Club Members are not required to RSVP for any Ride or Event except where it has been identified as RSVP MANDATORY. This designation is typically limited to social events and some Weekend out-of-town rides.
How RSVP displays on Club Media
Website Upcoming Rides & Event Table: Event Type will include "RSVP" ie "Weekend Road RSVP" or "Social Event RSVP"
Ride Library: Ride Guide will specify RSVP MANDATORY plus contact instructions.
Calendar: Description will specify RSVP MANDATORY plus contact instructions
MeetUp: Title will specify RSVP MANDATORY; there will be an assigned "Host" = Ride Leader or Contact person plus contact instructions
RSVP MANDATORY Procedures
Members can RSVP via phone, email, text message, email or MeetUp. The cutoff for RSVP MANDATORY rides is 12 hours prior to ride Start Time unless otherwise specified. On occasion, a Ride Leader may have to revise either the RSVP cutoff [due to an out-of-town Meet Point], or the RSVP contact method [ie no email at ride location]. These will be published on the website.
The cutoff for other RSVP events [social, meetings etc] shall be as specified in Club media ie poster, email etc.
RSVP MANDATORY Rides - Changes or Cancellations
The Ride Leader will phone or text Ride Changes or Cancellations directly to RSVP riders.
