(Due to lack of interest, this will not be occurring at Jimenez tomorrow. Sunday will be as scheduled).

This event was publicly marked as cancelled. When was it uncancelled? Why was that not announced, here or elsewhere?

As someone who would very much like to play this set (and who lives in Arlington, where this shadow mirror was apparently held), I really would've appreciated a public indication that it was still being held. My name was on the signup spreadsheet and I PM'd Matt suggesting a separate post for the mirror (since the initial announcement was buried within the Jimenez Ad Hoc Event thread), so it's not like I was interested but didn't show it.

Once we realized there wouldn't be enough people to do this in College Park, we moved to someone's house; our host was, I think understandably, anxious about hosting people they didn't know, and asked me to only invite people they had met. I apologize that this affected you adversely but I do think that's a fair request.

No one is going to begrudge a few friends playing packets at someone's house, but posting the stats publicly and posting a link to them in the thread about the actual event undermines the notion that that's all it was.

I'm not sure why we're being inquisitorial here ("undermines the notion"?), but many informal events keep stats; I did not ask Kevin to post them in the thread but I think he did so because he found them funny. "A few friends playing packets at someone's house" really is all this was, because the interest did not materialize for anything else.

Again. This is fine. I'm not trying to crucify anyone. Sorry! Just pointing out that it looks goofy to post stats for, like, someone's house party.
