A couple administrative things:

Quince Orchard and Georgetown Prep owe us registration fees - please submit those ASAP (or risk being incessantly bothered by Michael).

Thomas Jefferson requested a receipt for pizza - we'll have one ready by tonight. If any other teams would like a receipt for registration fees or pizza, please contact mshang1@jhu.edu.
