1L's jammed into an overheated room for an hour to try and shake as many hands as possible. 1L's will mix up partner names on Friday, and partners will wish they were home by the fire drinking Macallan 25 Year Old all night.
Come Friday afternoon, 85% - 90% of the 1L's will realize they wasted their time on Thursday night when they could have been relaxing.
Therefore, you will either be one of the 85-90% who realize you wasted your time by going, or you will be one of the 10-15% who realize you didn't need to go anyway.
