Good question. There was also a significant risk of orders not being fulfilled due to the conflict. The period between the drop end date and my previous post was me talking to the manufacturer/distributor to see if we could still deliver the units to the members who originally joined the drop. Unfortunately, the answer was no.
It sucks having a drop canceled. It would suck more if we let the drop run, had hundreds of members join, then have it turn out that we're unable to deliver. It was my call to nip this one in the bud before it potentially came to that point. If you have any additional questions, I'll try to answer the best I can.
