One of the major interest in the KSP is that people from all around
the globe can attend and meet together in person. You totally remove
this benefit if you make it happen on Saturday night : people with
children, people from abroad, people who have activities on Saturday
evening won't be able to attend.

That's the best way to kill the event.
