We have decided to cancel JIB8 Cocktail Party, because despite our efforts it seems like it was a cause for unhappiness, and that's the last thing we wish to achieve while giving our time to organize JIB Week.
The Cocktail Party was NEVER included in Angel pass description for JIB8, because we did not know if and how we could make it happen. And you were expected to be aware of that since before you made your choice on booking day, by reading invitation pass description.
Since last year, we've tried to find a way to preserve this activity despite having to deal with new limitations and new demands from all party involved, but without support and patience from participants, from YOU, this is impossible.
We were trying to keep the party in some ways, while putting together a new activity to give to all those with Angel pass something special, but right now it all seems quite pointless as every new effort we make to make you happy is met with anger.
Some of you do not like changes and fight us against each of them, but unfortunately in life things are bound to change despite you or us not wanting to, and as the organizers all we can do is trying to steer the change to keep JIB alive. However, if you expect JIB to be what it was 8 years ago, or 5 years ago, or even 3 years ago, well, that's impossible because the world is not the same, we are not the same and YOU are not the same.
No one can stop time, so, either we all adapt to changes, and maybe we can discover that they are not to be feared and resented, or we stop this dance and say goodbye.
