This poem, by Abby Carlson, pretty much sums up where we are and how we're feeling about the loss of this in person event:
Our party was canceled, all the streamers came down,
The flight we had planned for could not leave the ground.
We'd plotted, we'd planned, we had meetings galore;
We put things together, then we did it some more.
We gathered our prizes, we made decorations.
We'd planned to receive guests from multiple nations.
We're sad it won't happen, but that won't keep us down;
Now we're all wearing smiles instead of a frown.
We rose to the challenge, we've figured it out;
We've come up with some plans that are sure to work out.
The flight crew is ready, our "plans" are all packed;
Our poor canceled party is now officially "hacked"!
So watch the Create site, maintain Registration;
Have fun while indulging your imagination.
Please join in with us on our rerouted "flight"
You'll find new adventures on NAME's Create site.
