People simply don't show up for early classes. A couple of years ago,
the Isenfir Nothing but Dance III had classes starting at noon. By not
having a lunch break, we had substantially higher attendance at the
first class, and we only lost one class period.

For this event as proposed, I think that shortening the dinner break
is probably the higher priority. An onsite dinner can be done in an
hour flat. Offsite adds at least 30 minutes, if not an hour.

Of course, you can never KNOW how to get the best schedule, because
people are different, and no one has a perfect crystal ball.
