Yes, the timing isn't the best. I did what I could to avoid clashes with other events happening in the city. You'd be surprised how much is going on! That said, if people can find a better date that doesn't present any conflicts, groups have been known[1] to change their schedules in the past. I did my research by looking at technicallyphilly's events page[2] and finding dates with no/few conflicts. Shockingly, Monday was mostly empty at the time. Looking presently, the weekend seems to be mostly empty, but the issue there is that people tend to already have plans (e.g. I do a bunch of tabletop RPGs on the weekend). So keep that sort of thing in mind when looking for a reschedule.

Thanks and best regards,
