Ok, will do. We were under the assumption that that would be the next set in the series coming out.

Our 2017-18 sets ended with IS #175A. The first two sets in sequence for the fall will be #176A (introductory set) and #177 (regular-difficulty set), so we wanted to check in and make sure we knew what kind of set was needed here.
