The meetup has been cancelled.
Having attended other meetups in the past for other occasions, I know the effort and money that goes into hosting a successful event. I had no idea this was even happening (I just saw my friend post a response to an alert you left in her ask box), but as an Orlando resident who would have appreciated this opportunity had I been aware of it, I want to extend my most sincere and dear apologies for whatever events triggered this outcome. ): I hope you won't be discouraged from trying again one day.

I’ll definitely be trying it again in the future! :]
It was just these circumstances (our financial situations and the lack of respect and gratitude from those planning to attend) that made us decide to cancel it. I would like to try this idea again some time, thoughl

Thank you!

The meetup is cancelled.

We didn’t have to plan a meetup like this, but we did because we thought a lot of people would enjoy it. However, there are a lot of ungrateful people who are complaining about it, instead of being thankful that my friend and I have put so much time and money into it.

So I’m done with this. If you all still want to go to the park and meet each other, fine. But we will not be there, there will be no prizes or food, no games or stickers.
I’m not wasting any more time or money on people who are accusing me of trying to steal or complaining about the meetup, even after we changed the location.

I am very sorry to those of you who were actually thankful for all the work we put into this and were looking forward to it.
