We are temporarily at field cap. We hope to find more staff to expand the field further. If you wish to be placed on the wait list, please send me an e-mail and I'll put you on one.

We have managed to find the staff to expand the field to 36, almost clearing the wait list. We are currently capped there. If more staff can be acquired, we may be able to go even further.
