How do I sign up for an event?

A member can click the event you'd like to attend from the Monthly Calendar. On the Event page, select Member Registration on the top navigation bar to RSVP for the event.  Once you've submitted your RSVP, you're all set to show up for the event! 

It is important that you RSVP for an event, as this allows the leader to know to look for you and have a head count for any table reservations, tickets, etc.

What if I'm unable to attend an event for which I've RSVP'd?

All you need to do is sign on, select My Events in the left navigation bar.  You'll see all the events for which you've RSVP'd with a green dot.  Just select "withdraw" to remove your name from the event you're unable to attend.  

The Event Leaders greatly appreciate having the correct headcount!  We thank you in advance

Refunds depend upon the policies of 3rd party vendors and other factors.  By registering for an event, you understand that you may not receive a full refund should you need to withdraw.  All cancellation and refund requests should be emailed to administrator@bayoucityoutdoors.com  or by calling 713-524-3567.

What do my dues cover?

Your BCO dues get you access to the BCO interactive website featuring the BCO Events Calendar. Only members have the ability to see the full details of every event including times, places, maps, directions and contact information.  Members can RSVP for events on the BCO site as well.  Most events are for members and their guest only.

Your dues help to cover the administrative costs of planning and executing the events on the BCO Events Calendar.  We strive to host at least one event every day so that you'll always have a lot of diverse events to choose from.  We do the planning and organizing and even get you exclusive discounts for BCO. You just show up and have fun!

Are the events free?

Most events are free but it depends on the event. However, they are relatively small for instance some events may require the purchase of tickets or incur some travel costs.  Each event listing will clearly state if it is free or not, and if not, what the anticipated costs will be.  We always strive to get group discounts for our members.

Can I bring a guest to a BCO event?

Guests are usually welcome at BCO events. In the description of each event will be an icon telling you whether guests are welcome to attend. 

We do enforce a couple of guidelines in the interest of fairness to all members.  Members will take priority over guests at events where space is limited.  Members bringing guest to a BCO event are responsible for that guest's behavior and any damage that they may cause.
