Club Members are only required to RSVP for those Rides or Events identified as RSVP MANDATORY. This designation is usually limited to social events and some Weekend out-of-town rides.
How RSVP displays on Club Media
Website Upcoming Events Table: Type will include "RSVP" ie "Weekend Road RSVP" or "Social Event RSVP"
Ride Library: Ride Guide states RSVP MANDATORY plus contact instructions.
Calendar: Description states RSVP MANDATORY plus contact instructions
RSVP MANDATORY Procedures
Members can RSVP via phone, email, or text message. The cutoff for RSVP MANDATORY rides is 12 hours prior, unless otherwise specified. On occasion, a Ride Leader may have to revise either the RSVP cutoff [eg for a very remote Meet Point], or the RSVP contact method [eg no email at ride location]. These changes will be published on the website.
The cutoff for other RSVP events [social event, meetings etc] shall be as specified in Club media.
RSVP MANDATORY RIDES - Changes or Cancellations
The Ride Leader will phone or text Ride Changes or Cancellations directly to RSVP riders.
