We also accept Paypal, Credit cards and/or Stripe. However Paypal/ Credit cards/ stripe will incur a transaction/ convenience fee of 5 to 6%.

All,payment information will be on your checkout page.

What is the cancellation and “no-show” policy on non-paid events.

RSVPs should be cancelled three (3) hours before the event to allow others a chance to attend. A Cancellation less than three (3) hours before an event without word is considered a no-show. Be considerate of planning and message organizer if you can no longer attend on the day of event.

A “no-show” is when a person reserves a space for an event and never uses that reservation/shows up. We understand that circumstances happen but it’s important to cancel your reservation to allow the organizers to plan accordingly and allow other people to participate. Four (4) no shows without notifying the group organizers will result in being prevented to RSVP for such events.
