My apologies, I was just informed that JHU will be hosting the Maryland State Science Olympiad on 3/30, so there will not be rooms avaliable on that day. The date has been pushed back one day and the post has been edited to reflect this change.

Is it correct that there are 13 teams registered for this tournament out of a max of 12? Is the field size staff-limited, rather than buzzer or room limited?(Delaware may or may not end up sending a team to this, but if it does I can staff)
