Do just the members of the team have to sign up for this, or does anyone who wants to go to the competition need to sign up?

Any members of the team that’d like to be able to go to the team party must sign up for this.

Matt who needs to further remind his team to sign up…

Lori sent an e-mail to the team contacts last week. They are having trouble getting all of the badges out.
The message is pasted below:
