Not great timing. Dont know why they would schedule this while the SLA conference is going on. Would love to have gone but will be out in Phoenix like many others.

It is not the best timing -- unfortunately it was scheduled and tickets were purchased for the game a while back, without realizing that it conflicted with the SLA conference. We hope to have a good turnout nonetheless, and will likely do something similar again soon. Anyone who can't make it all the way to Phoenix, we would love to have you in DC.
