AIBU to think that 9.15pm is a bit late for a house meeting?! (sorry this is a bit long and ranty)

I live in a house which is converted into 4 flats. I have been trying to organise a house meeting via email for ages to talk about various bits and pieces. We had a meeting organised for a Sunday evening a couple of months ago and then at the last minute, one of the neighbours said they couldn't make it as that was their 'one night together'(they are both self-employed and work from home). I was a bit irritated and then didn't have the energy to reorganise for a while.
Now it is all getting a bit urgent as there is water leaking through the ceiling in the baby's bedroom and I need to get agreement that I can get someone in to repair it.
There were a few dates suggested next week and I said Wednesday or Thursday would work best for me. The same neighbours have now said that the only time they can do is 9.15pm. I will also have to host the meeting as I'm a single parent so can't go out in the evening and I am going back to work next week. Another one of my neighbours also has a baby and these people do not have kids.
AIBU to think this is ridiculously late?! I go to bed at 10 and have to force myself to stay awake till then to do a dream feed. Do you think she's being deliberately obstructive or am I being paranoid?

We are the landlords annoyingly - share of freehold which means everyone likes to get involved every time you spend 50p which is very, very annoying.
I have emailed back and said it's a bit late but if that's the only time they can make, then fine but we will have to finish by 9.45.
I am considering hosting in my nightie

I hope the other mum will say it's too late. I'm not being a wimp, it's just me and the 9.15 woman had a bit of weird conversation earlier in the summer because I got a bit irritated with her popping her head out of the window for a chat every time I went into the garden and now she thinks I don't like her.
I really need to move out of London so I can afford a house. Flats are a blardy nightmare
