Sorry Jan, I thought it was polite to apologise for not being able to attend, and would have thought it was perfectly clear that if nobody has said they are attending, there is nobody attending. It looks like its a bad choice of weekend...Queen's Birthday most of us have made other plans for the long weekend.
Hope you all have fun.
Don't take it to heart Gypsyglen, I don't think you are the only one being told off!!

Muffins, your words are well said, and could not agree more with what you have said here. AMEN.
Jan, not everyone would have seen that post of yours about not wanting to hear from those who can't make it, only those who can make it. I, too, do hope it goes off well for you on Monday. No doubt, there will be another time to catch up and meet you.

Come on Jan, please get off your high horse!!!!! This site is supposed to be a friendly one and one that I really enjoy
THe cafe wants to know how many to cater for,and i need the numbers,i talked to folk before i decided to plan this,I have no idea how many members are in Waikato,I have never met you so stop judging me.You are not likely to either as I will never organise any thing again ot attend any function.I wrote it in large letters to make it clearer to read.Before i returned to this area and there was a function those who wanted to attend said so,I was for a number of years to president of a large single club,we had a monthly dance including live music and a weekly event,maybe I am not used of the ways of the north .so Zetti you think i am not friendly cause i used big letters,least i do not talk behind peoples backs.If that offends you then i am so sorry...
Jan I was certainly not talking behind your back. I am a very up front person and if I have offended you, please accept my apology

I agree with Muffnz, it is polite to apologies for not being able to attend. We are an extremely friendly group who all get on very well. There is no need to tell people off for not being able to attend. Maybe you should go make to what you are use to, obviously not a friendly group of people who get together WHEN THEY CAN. We are all very busy people, I for one would love to attend all outings, however I like many others cannot.
I am not telling anyone off for not attending,I need to give Cafe numbers,I do not know who is in your group so not like i have a list to cross names off.
I joined grown ups years before i got to know any one and have met some lovely folk.
I have never attended a lunch and at this stage have no plans to after this,several have told me more than once or evn three times they are not coming which is not helping me get a list for Cafe.
interesting how none of you have met me but are quick to try and put me down

Hello jan!! I hope you wern"t JUST RELYING on the people from the Waikato for your meetup on Monday????? Isn"t there many people from your area that are keen to go??? IF SO, what is wrong with that??? As you are probably aware, it is a long weekend, and most of us have made other plans, There is NO need to get your knickers in a twist about it, There is allways another time , when maybe we can all meet up. Looking back on the comments. I DO NOT get the impression that anyone is putting YOU DOWN, I think everyone has been ever SO POLITE!!! Hope you get a good gathering on Monday, and enjoy your weekend!!!

I see I'm not the only one who has been told off (well in my case it was a put down). One person leapt to my defense at least but I see he hasn't been around for a while. I often can't get to events, although I would love too but at the last minute there's something I have to do.
After not being able (once again) to attend, someone remarked about people saying they are going to turn up and don't. This can be unavoidable at times with a large family to fit in with. I was quite hurt about that remark, as the person who said it, didn't know me or my circumstances.
Now I never say I'm going anywhere unless I am certain I'm going
Im really sorry you felt that way Jean as i enjoyed your company at Frescas the day we met. i find if Im not too sure if I can attend one of our Sat lunches I put a question mark beside my name on the list.
