My apologies, I was just informed that JHU will be hosting the Maryland State Science Olympiad on 3/30, so there will not be rooms avaliable on that day. The date has been pushed back one day and the post has been edited to reflect this change.

Is the field for this tournament still empty?

Is it correct that there are 13 teams registered for this tournament out of a max of 12? Is the field size staff-limited, rather than buzzer or room limited?(Delaware may or may not end up sending a team to this, but if it does I can staff)

The field has been expanded to 18, however we are currently experiencing a but of a staffing shortage. If any teams could could bring staffers, that would be much appreciated. The staffing discount will be increased to -$20 dollars.

I believe I emailed about this, but seeing as we are still listed with two teams, I want to clarify that Princeton is only bringing one team, one buzzer, and no staffers. I apologize for any confusion and I hope this hasn't prevented another team from registering.

Edit: Also, I believe you have included Montgomery Blair twice in the field list.

I also believe I emailed about this, but Penn added a second team to our registration. Hopefully, Princeton dropping a team means that this won't affect too much.

Just commenting to say that it is in fact accurate that Blair is bringing 2 teams despite them being listed separately.

If that's the case, given what Nitin said, then there are actually 19 teams registered for this tournament, I believe, unless another team was not fully updated.

Bump. Can we get this addressed so everyone knows for sure whether they can come on Sunday?

Just out of preference, do y'all plan on posting a combined stats report? Again, thanks for the great tournament!
