As a former UG leader and a speaker, I ran the user group more because it was fun to learn and meet other speakers. Getting free admission to PASS was a nice perk, but it still needed flights and hotels which can get expensive too.
For me running the user group was more about the networking and learning than about getting perks out of it. I paid for the location I rented out of my own pocket (it was cheap - $15 per hours and I only did 10 presentations per year at 3 hours per presentation so we had time to discuss afterwards and I had time to set up). Unfortunately, interest slowly dwindled out and I had too many cases where I was the only one attending which is not good when you have a live presenter coming on site (or remote).
I understand that conferences such as PASS cost money to organize and get set up and some people get funding to attend from their employer to attend. But the cost for those who are not getting funding externally (ie paying out of pocket), it can get quite expensive to attend.
With PASS going virtual, you lose the networking aspect which is one of my favorite parts. Learning is good, but sitting down with speakers (and non-speakers) at PASS and just talking about stuff (SQL or otherwise) is nice. Plus when you meet mew people at PASS (or SQL Saturday), it is nice going back and meeting new and old friends!
Virtual events are nice, but there are already a LOT of free virtual events you can attend, so I do not see as much benefit in attending PASS Summit this year. SQL Saturday's though I am hoping to attend again once the pandemic is over and hopefully speaking at an event again sometime soon!
The above is all just my opinion on what you should do.
As with all advice you find on a random internet forum - you shouldn't blindly follow it. Always test on a test server to see if there is negative side effects before making changes to live!
I recommend you NEVER run "random code" you found online on any system you care about UNLESS you understand and can verify the code OR you don't care if the code trashes your system.
