event cancellation

Sadly, this event was cancelled before the show aired. There was serious flooding in the area. Luckily everybody is safe.

sorry to hear about cancellation

Sorry to hear that the event got cancelled, it sounded really exciting. When you in the beginning were talking about capture the flag, I was under impression that it would be the kid's game, where you're trying to steal flag from opposing team. Only after you started talking about lockpicks and hacking it dawned to me what kind of capture the flag you're talking about here. Super interesting episode, I hope you can eventually make one about actual event (different one than cancelled of course).
