The field is now full! Thank you to all who registered. If any team or school is NOT bringing the amount of teams, buzzers, or moderators written above in the original post, please let me or Aidan York know via email, or by posting here. Additionally, any more teams who register will be added to a waitlist. Thank you, we are looking forward to a great tournament!

Just as a note, especially since new users' posts have to be approved before they show up, it is definitely recommended that teams which have to cancel or reduce their participation in a tournament on short notice not do so on the forum, but rather by directly contacting the host, to ensure that the message is received in a timely fashion (and also to ensure that such messages are authentic!).
