Here is an update of our team list we really want to hit 16 or more, and we are so close! There are still a few teams that are not official yet but should be joining us soon. There is still space at the event if you want to join us. We have gotten several volunteers over the last week, but we could certainly use more. If you want to come and join us in a volunteer role for OMB, that link is in the OP.

2992 SS Prometheus had a blast last year at this event. Unfortunately we just couldn’t make the dates work this year, and also won’t be able to attend. We are hoping to return in future years! I’m sure once again it will be a fabulous event.
