I've only been to the last three GenCons but its been the same each of those years, I thought it was the norm.I have GM'd all the specials because, GENCON and SPECIALS! But that's just me. At this point I wouldn't know what to do with an evening slot off! LOL
The evening slots used to be 7pm until Midnight. It's more about being able to get a minimal amount of sleep and still GM or play as many slots possible. For someone like myself who doesn't stay downtown, loosing the extra hour was a deal breaker for being able to make morning slots after running an evening slot. I lost time I would normally attend and play in the mornings because I was GMing the specials in the evening slots. That was my "con disruption".
Don't get me wrong, it was done to give GMs a gap between the afternoon and evening slots. As someone who had missed dinner on more than one occasion, I do understand the reasoning.
