If you can't make it a priority to go, clear your schedule and make the time don't post as "IN". Then again I shouldn't surprised at all nowadays as many people flake out for anything and everything since they don't honour their word.
Those who've been brought up (indoctrinated?) in team oriented activities whether it be Cadets/Reserves, team sports, real part-time jobs, or other activities with time/responsibility defined parameters, are very rarely the issue with respect to this aspect of commitment.
It's the Boob-tube/Nintendo/X-box baby-sitting service generation that have been left to their own devices and whims, and where 'team activity' is easily ignored, avoided or terminated by a simple press of the reset button, that generally has major issues.
