The increase was simply too much and the bad economy also made this whole game became unaffordable to many people.
Again ... that is BS ... 130+ people posted "in" and "confirmed" well before the game when the Cost was well known.
I had an Org chart at company strength well before the Payment deadline.. but when it came time to put up $ there was clearly a lot more talkers than walkers.
A good lesson was learned by all involved ... Most people's post of "in Confirmed" actually means .. Maybe ill show up if the weather is clear and I can arrange a ride and I don't have to do something else that I forgot to check on before saying Ill be there
