Lori says we have 532 teams right now. But they are letting a few more teams in, so she expect we will get to 540. There are also 340 teams registered for the Nationals. Wow, better get your reservations fast!

I suspect the number will drop by the time kits are distributed. It happens every year - some teams register but cannot get enough support to actually participate.

Then again, the number of teams going to the nationals can fluctuate. Teams that did not register for nationals but do well at a regional are encouraged and try harder to get more funding.

As Lori said, ‘this is going to be a wild year.’ I wonder if she is trying to give us a hint about the game rules with that statement.
