We'll probably bring 1-3 teams, it's just a question of who's around because it's the beginning of our spring break... we'll have a registration in within 7-10 days.

Yeah so we really want to go to this...but it is also in the middle of our Spring Break so we will probably have 1 team which may or may not include me.

Pretty much the exact same thing with Charter. I'll try to get registration in by the end of next week.

Montgomery Blair registered two teams earlier this week, but we are not currently listed in the field. Just wanted to make sure that our registration went through and everything.

Fixed.

Also, we are likely to cap the field at 16 teams. If more teams sign up, we could raise that if we get more moderators.

The field is currently at 17, if one more team would register, that'd be great.

Blair cleared the 15-team field (Gar-Field, Marriotts Ridge and McDonaugh were no shows) and won the 2nd annual "Coveted Golden Buzzer". George Mason got 2nd and Charter A got 3rd. I'll have stats up sometime this weekend.

I hope everyone here had a good time. In my opinion, BDAT was a very fine set. I thought that our volunteer moderators, though not perfect, were of a higher quality than the ones from last year, as reflected in most teams finishing by around 4:30 instead of around 6:30.

We hope everyone enjoyed the BDAT set, and would appreciate any feedback or commentary that you have.

Remember not to publicly discuss individuaI questions from the set, as there are still future mirrors. However, I encourage people who played or moderated or heard the set to join the BDAT II discussion group under User Control Panel - Usergroups- BDAT II discussion . Thanks!

Will stats be up sometime soon? We have a bunch of freshmen who have been spending their end of break bothering me about their stats last weekend.

When a.) my coach emails them to me and b.) I get back to my house (I'll be back by Friday but my coach hasn't emailed them to me yet.)
