I read this set today at the University of Missouri mirror, and I definitely thought it was more accessible than last year's set. Also, glancing through the finals, it doesn't appear like any of the tossups were out of control difficult. So thanks to Maggie Walker for making this fantastic set more accessible to teams.

With our last mirror completed, this set will be released shortly unless someone contacts me in the next 5 days or so asking to use it.
