January 27, 2014, 6:30pm to 8pm in Brier Elementary MPR

Cost: Free
No-show policy: Cost is $10, to be donated to FUSS.  You will not be able to register for any future event or program for any member of your family till this is paid.

Why this no-show policy?  
TGIF has noticed significant number of no-shows in programs offered at no cost.  Significant amount of planning and cost (custodial etc.) goes into every program - free or not.  No-shows make the effort wasted, and create an embarrassing situation with the guest.  While TGIF would like to continue to offer programs at the lowest possible costs to the members, we can not afford the disruption that no-shows bring.  This policy will hopefully discourage the no-shows.
