Kellenberg will be at a strength somewhere between A and B. Probably closer to B than A.

If you need a registration from Kellenberg, Bro.Nigel will have to send it to you, but I can confirm Kellenberg is planning on attending with 3-5 teams depending on conflicts with a Science Olympiad Invitational and whether or not I can get 20 people organized in the next 2 weeks.
