    The Who Will be Attending page confuses me in that it sounds like you are only inviting 6 member teams from each VA school to attend this event. Or is it open to anyone, but you are just specially inviting this one group in some way? Thanks Rick Reo

      What we are aiming for is schools to send 6 member teams, but also enable anyone who wants to go beyond that. Either people not in that 6 person cadre, or individuals from other schools or schools that aren’t sending a group. We are trying to leave as much possibility for as many people to come as possible. Make sense?
