If you are listed as an event-attending to the Meetup.com it is BECAUSE YOU ARE AN OFFICIAL MEMBER for the 2016/2017 season. This is not an “actual” event. It is a way for us to keep track of our official members and to communicate with them. Do not change your RSVP status once you are listed as a Yes, Because you will NOT receive any communications from us if you do so!
Disclaimer 1 : We are a social group that bases our success on people being active within the group, i.e. joining us for a fair number of meetings. We always welcome and try to integrate new members during their first visits. Membership participation is an essential part of our success.
Disclaimer 2 : On the subject of access to training sessions / private meetings, and obtaining players’ signatures during The US summer tours or games at the Bernabeu. Those are VERY extraordinary events are not likely to happen on a yearly basis. In most cases, space will be limited by Real Madrid (in the past it’s been limited to 10-20 members) and amongst the petitioners, preference will be given to OPM members that have actively participated in our events and are contributing to the success of our group.
These events will be handled on a case by case basis and only your RMLA membership gives you the possibility to participate in those events. Given the limited numbers allowed by Real Madrid and the high number of petitioners we receive for these events, generally we use a random lottery / drawing method, if there is more than one event, those who attended the 1st event are not eligible to attend a 2nd event.
If you join this group because you want to meet other Madridistas in the area, then WE are the group for you. If you are joining this group because you want to meet the players, then we probably are not the group for you as we cannot make any promises that it will happen and their schedules can change without any notice.
