Most of the questions have been written. However, we still have to edit the set. We are probably going to run it in May, but if we decide to wait until next year, what other sets are available now that RM has used RAVE?

I think that a lot of the bonus problems are due to discrepancies between the number of actual tossups converted and the bonuses heard stat line (e.g.: Dorman got 16 toss-ups, and hopefully 16 bonuses, but they supposedly only heard 14 bonuses, giving them a 30+ ppb in one round).
